® The 13 th EADV Spring Symposium took place in the historic city of Athens in May 2016. The very modern Megaron congress venue hosted the scientific events and also the opening ceremony where after the inspiring welcome speeches of the EADV President, Prof Erwin Tschachler and the Symposium Chair, Prof Christina Antoniou, a lovely musical performance by a famous Greek musician, Evanthia Reboutsika, was enjoyed by the participants. Almost 2500 attendees enjoyed 3 days of reviews and updates on the latest in global dermatology and venereology, set amidst the specta- cular scenery and splendour of ancient and modern Athens. Highlights included an intensive training and educational forum aimed at residents to help them hone their skills, and also a master class on medical imaging. The President’s Dinner was held in the magnificent open-air courtyard of the Zappion Pavilion where all of the participants had the oppor- tunity to enjoy the delights of Greek cuisine and the beautiful music.
