7th CEEDVA Meeting Prague, Czech Republic, 11 October 2002
11th Congress of the EADV in Prague from the "Eastern point of view"
Dear colleagues,
One year after the 11th Congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, let´s look behind!
Years of preparation and one week of the Congress have passed like one second of my life. I do not regret to stop all other activities for more than two years to arrange the Congress with passion and understanding for your, it means our needings. Despite the forecast of having a small congress for at about two thousands participants (the reason why the EADV decided to move to East, the Prague EADV Congress was the biggest in the history of its congresses and, furthermore, as its President Martin Black wrote to me: "the best of all…".
And why did it happen? Thanks to all of you, dear Eastern colleagues. I would like to remember you some data of the Congress and its preparation, as well as the real participation of the people from "our" world.
  1. October 1999, Amsterdam, Prague won the competition to Riga and Malta. We made an agreement with prof. Rubins that the one who would loose the competition would be a chair of one session (and I did it, Andris!).
  2. October 2000, Geneva, I have asked all CEEDVA participants to send me the proposals of the speakers and chairs.
  3. February 2001, Prague, the Executive Scientific Committee decided all session titles, their chairs and co-chairs.
  4. October 2001, Munich, all participants of the CEEDVA meeting were asked for lectures and posters again.
  5. 5. January 2002, Prague, the first meeting in the history of EADV: the EC EADV members met 14 out of 18 Presidents of National Societies from the Eastern countries. The following proposals were made to the Presidents:
    1. by the EC EADV - reduced registration fee for the Congress 20 euro, affiliation membership of the National Societies to the EADV for a half of the membership fee, and a posibility of new EADV Board members from Eastern countries (paid by the Congress budget, in a practical way, low registration fees were paid by both, the EADV - 70 %, and by the Czech Society of Dermatology - 30 %);
    2. by the Congress secretariat: 100 free beds for participants from Eastern countries (paid by the Congress budget, that is again the same situation like with the registration fees);
  6. October 2-6, 2002, Prague, EADV Congress:
    1. Hospitality Suite for participants from Eastern countries were available during the whole Congress,
    2. CEEDVA meeting was organized on October 3rd, 2002, during the lunch time, so, no other scietific sessions were on programme. Prof. Forsea, President of CEEDVA, expressed his frustration on the possibilities of colleagues from the Eastern countries to travel to the next EADV congresses (as there is no lower registration fee announced in the first announcement of the 12th Congress in Barcelona) and the number of representatives in the EADV Board has not been increased. New strategy should be decided to make our countries more visible in dermatology. Prof. Tsankov presented the new issue of the CEEDVA Bulletin on psoriasis and opened a discussion on the topic of the next year´s Bulletin. The CEEDVA officers thanked to prof. Tsankov for his work.
    3. Participants numbers: 6.063 composed of 4.232 certified dermatologists, 167 studetns, 171 residents, 84 press people, 1.100 exhibitors, and 302 accompany persons. 1.260 participants arrived to Prague from the previous Eastern countries, i.e. we represented 30 % of all participants!
    4. Speakers numbers: There were 584 lectures during the Congress, and together 220 chair persons of the sessions. And what about the representatives of the Eastern countries? First of all it is necessary to know that the Local Organizing Committee could influence only speakers of case presentations and free communications. Speakers of the main sessions (plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, courses, lunches, controversies, what´s new session) were selected by the chair persons (who were settled by the Executive Scietific Committee of the EADV), and speakers for the sister societies and satelite symposia were elected by the Societies, resp. Pharmaceutical companies. So, speakers from Eastern Europe created 15 % of all speakers, chair persons were 29 % of all. (70 % speakers came from Western Europe, 15 % from Eastern Europe, 7 % from the North America, the rest of them came from Asia, South America, Australia and Afrika.

    5. Other possibilities for the future of Eastern countries?
      According to my best knowledge, we must work much more together. To be honest, me personally was not in favor of the CEEDVA, I thought that all the countries should work hard and be visible themselves. But, unfortunatelly, if you are doing better, you are going to be a competitor to your colleagues and their interest to help you is going down. So, the only chance to all of us now, is work, cooperate, perform together. To find the way which is efficiant, not time consuming and suitable for all of us. We should profit from our vision which is the same to all of us - to enter the Europe which we have never left!
      But to be considered like true partners, we must fulfill the following criteria:
      • to be true competitors
      • to have the equal possibilities to study, to work
      • to get chance to study and work abroad
      • to publish the papers in impact factor journals
      • to serve as invited speakers at international conferences
      • to be invited to conduct multicentric clinical trials
      • to be invited to publish books abroad etc.
Is it a dream to us? Why? Do we have some chance to enter the real dermatological world?
To me, the answer is YES, but we cannot be always devoted to everybody without our own proposals, ideas, aims, scopes. We must get visibility through entering all possible international structures, i.e.:
  • we should profit from chance of having the first Congress in the previous "Soviet block" country, but it must not be the last one,
  • to get Board members at all European and international dermatological societies, to lobby at the international societies together,
  • to try to attract as many international meeting as possible to our countries,
  • to coordinate our National meetings, not to overlap the data,
  • to show our experince and knowledge to the colleagues from the western countries by inviting them to our National congresses,
  • to organize one annual (at minimum) meeting,
  • to have efficiant cooperation and exchange of information through web page, portal,
  • to have one journal devoted to the Eastern Europe, to choose one topic specific for our part of world to be attractive to the rest of the world,
  • to publish bulletin twice - three times a year to exchange information for those colleague who are not able to get information via internet,
  • to offer scholarships, grants, dermatological training to our young colleagues (for attendance at congresses, study stays etc.),
  • co perform gant projects from Eastern and western countries together
  • to arrange awards for the best lectures, posters, publications.
The most important is to be proud of ourselves, to serve as partners. Our culture and our dermatology is rich and colorfull to be shown to the rest of world.
Let´s enter Europe together!
To me, the most concrete steps should be the following:
  1. EADV Board Members - all Eastern countries having at minimum 10 members should apply immediatelly the the EC EADV to get one Board Member, those National Societies which have got more than 100 EADV members shouls apply immediatelly for two Board members (as to the status of the EADV, the letter to Secretary-General, Dr. Powell is enough (fpow@indigo.ie).
  2. EADV Spring Symposia - those countries where some congress facilities for at about 2.000 participants is available should apply immediatelly to the EC EADV for the bid to organize the EADV Spring Symposium.
  3. Affiliation membership to the EADV - to consider if this way of membership is intersting for the country (i.e. to pay half of 115,- euro for each member).
  4. To find one journal to exchange the scientific ideas, it could be the CEEDVA Bulletin of Prof. Tsankov, if it would be published more frequently, or any other journal published in English (Acta Dermatologica Alpina, Adriatica, et Pannonica of Prof. Kansky) - and to bring such a journal to the impact factor.
  5. To use any offer of publishing in IF journals (please, feel free to send me any papers for the Journal of International Dermatology, IF = 0.89, at which I am the section Editor for Europe).
  6. To try to attend international congresses with the help of the colleagues from different Societies (please, look at www.intderm.org).
  7. To use the offer of different international societies.
  8. To built a database of people interested to work together.
  9. To work together, not to work one against another one.
Thanks for all better ideas in advance!
