Dear Colleagues,
Dear Friends.

It is my great honor to welcome you to the 15th BADV / 7th EAAD / 18th LDVA Congress which will be held in Riga, Latvia 4-6 October 2018.

At the congress we are going to discuss a broad spectrum of scientifically important issues and problems in dermatovenerology. Congress program will include main dermatological, skin cancers, cosmetic dermatological and STI problems. It will be an excellent possibility for all of us to exchange the ideas, experience and the latest achievements in the disease prevention, diagnostics and treatments.

This year we have already invited top dermatovenerologists from Europe to take a part as speakers and I am confident that also this year congress program will be outstanding.

Also we are inviting leading pharmaceutical companies to organize symposiums and demonstrate their production in exhibitions.

I am sure that all participants and speakers will be delighted with congress and will enjoy beautiful Riga atmosphere while all Baltic countries are celebrating their 100 years anniversary.
