The conference is being hosted by IADVL Puducherry and will be conducted at Indira Gandhi Medical College & Research Institute, Puducherry.

The programme is well arranged and intend to discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered, and solutions adopted in the diversified field of Dermatology.

The Organizing Committee is working hard to put together an educational and scientific program for what will be an academic extravaganza. We are also planning exciting cultural events for entertainment of delegates and their family members. Our aim is to provide you a memorable experience at an affordable rate.
