Skin and Environment – Perception and Protection
10th EADV Congress, Munich, 2001




With almost 6,000 participants, the 10th congress of the European Academy of Dermatovenereology (EADV) in Munich (10 – 14th October 2001) was one of the largest meetings of this society and in the immediate succession of the outstanding event in Geneva organized by Jean-Hilaire Saurat.

The program under the motto „Skin and environment – perception and protection" covered the whole spectrum of dermatology, venereology and related subspecialties organized in plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, courses, selected case reports, expert meetings and poster presentations. Recent developments on pharmacological therapies were presented in 18 satellite symposia. There were many events organized in a combined effort by the EADV and sister or subspecialty societies from Europe and Germany.

The program was well attended – in spite of the beautiful weather – and supplemented by social events like the welcome reception with Bob Ross and the Munich brass philharmonic group „Blechschaden", the ballet in the Munich Royal Residence and the Bavarian evening in the Löwenbräukeller with the musical „The Odyssee of Allergy".

The national scientific committee headed by Enno Christophers and Thomas Bieber and the EADV scientific committee headed by Jean-Paul Ortonne, the EADV executive committee headed by president Jose Mascaro and Martin Black and with the tremendous help of Derek Fredman, the local organizing committee headed by our honorary president Otto Braun-Falco and pushed by the enthousiasm of Stephan Weidinger and the professional congress organizer Interplan (represented by Bruno Lichtinger, Sylvia Steinbeiß and many others) - all did a tremendous job. On behalf of the participants I would like to thank all of them for their most efficient performance.

The first congress of our academy in Firenze organized by Emiliano Panconesi and Torello Lotti also was later on published in a proceedings volume. This tradition has been forgotten in the last 10 years. We are happy to start it again and are very grateful to Monduzzi Editore (represented by Dr. Danilo Gamberini) for their excellent work in publishing these volumes which consist both of invited presentations and submitted abstracts from the poster sessions. All manuscripts went through an editing process with independent reviewers.

We hope that these two volumes of the proceedings of the 10th EADV congress may contribute to education, exchange of information and a better care for the increasing number of our patients!
