Register for the Meeting

All faculty are asked to wear professional/business attire for both pre-recorded and live-streamed presentations, panel discussions, and other congress sessions when faculty will be seen by attendees. Faculty are encouraged to record their presentations with a simple background.
No Political or Religious Commentary; No Plagiarism
This is a scientific forum, therefore, political and religious commentary or statements are inappropriate and should not be included in abstracts, presentations or discussions, including speaker backgrounds for live-streamed sessions. In addition, plagiarism will not be tolerated and will be considered an ethics violation.
Presenters should be aware that this is an online meeting and to practice extra due diligence with content and patient photos.
We are anticipating 400+ in attendance with varying degrees of knowledge and experience in vitiligo. Attendees will be culturally diverse, with many countries represented, including many non-native English speakers. You should speak clearly and slowly, so all attendees can understand and benefit from your talk.
The official language of the symposium is English. If you do not have an adequate command of English, then we highly recommend that you present with a voiceover.
Before & After Photos
If you are including before and after pictures it is important that they are proper and clear ‘before and after’ photos of your cases, if applicable. Permission to use patient photographs is the responsibility of the author(s). All photographic results must not be computer altered or retouched. Use .gif or .jpg format. Photographs must be high quality, clear, have good lighting. Presenters should be aware that this is an online meeting and to practice extra due diligence with content and patient photos.
