Welcome to the XXXIX Symposium of the International Society of Dermatopathology!

We hope to be your host in São Paulo – Brazil, next October 11-13th, 2018. São Paulo is the largest and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in South America. Departing from the main cities around the globe, the majority of airlines offer direct flights to it and the city has a wide variety of hotels. You will find great restaurants from all over the world and of course our own typical food (barbecue, northeast traditional seafood, “feijoada”, specialties from Minas Gerais, among others). Two major classical theaters present great music orchestras (Sala São Paulo and Teatro Municipal), broadway-type musicals are now available, intimate music halls are at hand, as well as our great art museum (MASP), just a few blocks away from the congress venue. For those who like outdoor sports, Ibirapuera Park is a safe place and rivals the new yorker Central Park in area. The venue, Centro de Convenções Rebouças, is located right next to a metro station, besides University of São Paulo School of Medicine, a large medical complex, and at walking distance from Paulista Avenue, the most important and well known Avenue in São Paulo.

As for the scientific program, we organized a great event. Please notice that almost all subjects related to dermatopathology will be discussed. Besides the self-assessment course, a must in ISDP symposiums, parallel tutorials will be available for those who are initiating in the field. Well known specialists have agreed to prepare case based tutorials aiming to share their expertise in specific areas, such as melanocytic lesions, lymphoproliferative disorders, inflammatory dermatopathology, infectious diseases, among others. Young people are stimulated to participate.

Right before the XXXIX symposium, an International Board Certification in Dermatopathology exam will be applied on behalf of the International Society of Dermatopathology and a meeting of the Sociedade Ibero Latino Americana de Dermatopatologia (SILADEPA) will take place.

Finally, we would like to share our enthusiasm in hosting people from abroad and from all over the country, offering our warmest welcome to those who are willing to share these experiences with us.
