11th World Congress of Melanoma and 21st EADO Congress
April 3-5, 2025

Dear Colleagues,

The World Congress of Melanoma has always been a unique forum of exchange between physicians, scientists, nurses and students. It constitutes a lively exchange of clinical experiences, research work and clinical trial output among experts from all continents reflecting the enormous progress in the field of melanoma and skin cancer. The congress also offers a great opportunity for young colleagues to interact with distinguished faculty, discuss with industry partners and communicate with representatives of patient organizations, creating a formidable learning environment. The 11th World Congress of Melanoma & 21st EADO Congress will be no exception to the rich heritage, reputation and influence of the previous World Congresses.

From a scientific perspective, the program of the conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the most recent advances in melanoma and cutaneous oncology. A variety of plenary lectures, interactive symposia, and workshops will cover the field of melanoma as squamous cell carcinoma, merkel cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, actinic keratosis, cutaneous sarcoma, adnexal tumors and cutaneous T- and B-cell lymphomas. The entire spectrum of each disease will be presented including epidemiology, prevention and early detection, diagnostics and staging, surgical and radiotherapy and systemic and intralesional therapies. Certain unique elements will be introduced such as special advocacy sessions with the participation of invited policymakers, public health professionals and patient organizations. A series of “gross and microscopic case” sessions will provide a continuous stream of presentations of interesting cases with a specific teaching point presented by residents and younger colleagues. “Socratic dialogues” will also take place in small groups comprised of selected young colleagues from different countries who will be mentored by world-famous experts. Aspired by examples from ancient Greek heritage, the 11th World Congress of Melanoma & 21st EADO Congress will focus on young colleagues, not only serving as a platform of exchanging knowledge but also aiming to a deeply influential effect in their career paths.

Most importantly, the conference will be an opportunity to celebrate the therapeutic milestones achieved in the battle against melanoma. Under the auspices of two renown authorities in the field of continuous medical education, the Melanoma World Society (MWS) and the European Association of Dermato-Oncology (EADO), the conference will honor the remarkable collective achievements in the field and, through its proceedings, will define the work ahead to the ultimate goal of melanoma cure.

The unique surroundings of the cultural city of Athens and the springtime environment will contribute to what we expect will be a landmark event.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Athens 2025!
