Dear Colleagues 

With so much uncertainty around the world and different countries setting their own restrictions in response to the CO-VID 19 crisis, we have now made the difficult decision to cancel this live event.

However, we are delighted to announce that we will be converting the live programme into a virtual event to take place on Tuesday 7th – Thursday 9th September, so please continue to keep the dates free.  We know nothing beats a face to face meeting but while we cannot meet in person a virtual event offers many benefits.  Meeting virtually saves time and money with no travel time and access to the brilliant content from the comfort of your own office or home.  We can reach more of our global community and showcase more speakers, who may not have been allowed or able to travel to the live event.  Virtual events can be more flexible and fit more easily into your daily schedule.

We appreciate you will have many questions about next steps and we will be in touch with those who have booked to attend as soon as possible to confirm further details re fees and virtual programme etc.  Please bear with us while we work through the many logistics related to cancelling an event such as this and in planning a virtual conference.  We hope you will appreciate that we were keen to let you know the revised plan as soon as possible.

We are so very sorry we will not be meeting in person this year but very much hope you can join us in the virtual setting.  Thank you for your continued support and patience.

Virtual Conference

Tuesday 7 – Thursday 9 September 2021

On behalf of EUROSKIN and the organising committee, we kindly invite you to participate in the 5th International UV and Skin Cancer Prevention Virtual Conference, being held Tuesday 7 – Thursday 9 September 2021.

Together with our partners (German Bundesamt fur Strahlenschutz, European Cancer Leagues, The Danish Cancer Society, The Norwegian Cancer society, The Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority and the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland…….) we have developed an attractive programme which brings together outstanding experts from the international scientific and skin cancer prevention community. Through inspiring keynote lectures and invited talks about new developments, discussions and presentations of field work, recommendations for better prevention in the next decades will be developed. It is our aim to foster discussions and summarise our knowledge into shared recommendations, which will help to improve future skin cancer prevention. This is an ambitious aim, but we’re sure that together with your input and help we’ll come to a good and useful result at the end.

Full details of the virtual programme will be announced soon but we very much hope to still bring you the variety of workshops dealing with interesting and new topics in the field, followed by 4 thematic sessions that will showcase important scientific advances.

EUROSKIN, The European Society of Skin Cancer Prevention, has been dedicated to skin cancer prevention for many decades.

Skin cancer incidence is still increasing in most of the European countries, and worldwide, in the fair skinned population. This is still the result of changes in lifestyle, ongoing use of sunbeds and occupational UV. It is not trivial to predict how climate changes, along with increasing temperature, will change our behaviour in the future and affect our UV-exposure. Therefore, there is still a need to improve primary and secondary prevention of skin cancer by means of behavioral and environmental changes in order to reduce the impact of skin cancer. EUROSKIN, is convinced that only continuous preventive work, based on scientific evidence, will help to reduce number of skin cancer cases in the future.

Therefore, it will be a pleasure for us to welcome you virtually, 7 – 9 September 2021. We thank the organising committee, Fuse staff, participants, workshop and session chairs, keynote and plenary speakers for helping us to build this very exciting conference program. The Organising and Scientific Committee will make a considerable effort to make sure that your participation will be scientifically rewarding and also a pleasurable experience.
