Dear Colleagues:    

It is with great pleasure that we announce the virtual 19th Conference of the European Society for Dermatology and Psychiatry, which will be held virtually from 11th to 13th June 2021.  This conference is being held together with the 2nd Brain Skin Colloquium conference.  The ESDaP was initially formed following the collaboration of John Cotterill, Peter Berner and Michael Musalek, and the first Psychosomatic Dermatology International Conference took place in 1984 in Vienna. Subsequently the European Society of Dermatology and Psychiatry (ESDaP) emerged from this, and was legally established in 1993. This society remains a growing multidisciplinary forum where colleagues working in psychodermatology can exchange ideas and further clinico-academic research. ESDaP’s conference is held biennially. 

The 19th ESDaP conference will run parallel sessions with General Psychodermatology in the main virtual conference hall and specialized focus symposia in the second virtual hall looking at Atopic Dermatitis and Psychodermatology, Psoriasis and Psychodermatology and Itch and Psychodermatology.  Our meeting will discuss state of the art advances in focused disease specific psychodermatology symposia, as well as all aspects of psychodermatology.

Following the Covid-19 pandemic we plan also to hold a special symposium on psychodermatology applied to Covid-19 research, describing emerging issues for dermatology patients, research and health care professionals. We will be amalgamating expertise from around Europe and globally to address these very important and very pressing aspects of psychodermatology.


We invite all researchers and clinicians practicing or researching into psychodermatology to send abstracts via the ESDaP21 website (http://www.esdap21.com).  We anticipate lectures, presentations and poster presentations from pre-eminent clinicians and researchers in psychodermatology from across Europe and global colleagues to provide rich and fascinating cutting edge psychodermatology research.



The Brain Skin Colloquium

The19th ESDaP conference is held together with the 2nd Brain skin Colloquium.  The First International BSC was in Manchester in 2017.  The BSC was established by Dr Elise Kleyn and Prof Chris Griffiths and has championed clinic-academic excellence in the links between the brain and the skin, including patho-physiological and patho-aetiological associations. ESDaP and BSC have many broad overlying interests, and we are delighted to amalgamate the conferences together for the combined ESDaP / BSC Conference in London.
