BACKGROUND: For the third time, the International Summer Academy of Practical Dermatology is scheduled to take place in Munich, Germany. Following the success of the last ISA meeting which attracted over 900 participants from 70 different countries, ISA 2013 promises to provide participants with a unique global perspective of the latest developments in practical dermatology.
Originally based on the concept of the well-established German Meeting - the Munich Educational Week of Practical Dermatology - ISA 2013 now enjoys an international reputation of its own which is underpinned by the excellent faculty from around the world. This year's comprehensive scientific programme can be viewed in detail on the meeting website at www.isa2013.com.
The morning sessions are devoted to keynote lectures and major plenary topics. The fact that the plenary sessions are dedicated to one lecture hall only ensures that participants are able to attend the entire plenary offer.
Keynote Speakers include:
Cyber Dermatology - Daniel Mark Siegel, Brooklyn/New York, USA
Aesthetic Dermatology - Jean Carruthers, Vancouver, Canada
Haemangiomas in Childhood - Ilona Frieden, San Francisco, USA
Plenary Session Topics:

Common Problems in Practical Dermatology I and II
Dermatology around the World I and II

Each day, shortly after lunch, a one-hour symposium will review new developments in the field of dermatopharmacology and broaden the knowledge of important dermatological therapeutics.
Important Focus on Practical Dermatology
As indicated in the title of the congress, a special and intense focus is placed on the practical implementation of skills learned and presented during ISA 2013.
