Abstract Submission guidelines
Abstracts should be submitted using the link below. They should be no longer than 250 words in length (excluding author information and references). Submission of clinical images is strongly encouraged; appropriate consents should be obtained for any identifiable images.

If the primary author is unavailable, a co-author can present.
Medical students, residents and fellows are encouraged to submit abstracts to the VDS, in conjunction with dermatology attending physicians. Submissions accepted for publication or presentation elsewhere including journals or conferences should not be submitted. Up to two submissions per first author are permitted.
