Due to the ongoing epidemic situation with COVID-19, the organizing committee made the difficult decision to cancel the traditional format of the 32nd European Veterinary Dermatology Congress (planned to take place in Porto), and organize the congress online. For the online congress, the dates will remain the same and registration is now open!

During the online congress, scientific invited lectures will be streamed, including live Q&A. All lectures will remain available on demand until 31 December 2021. A virtual commercial exhibition area will be available with digital booths of each sponsor and exhibitor.
The commercial exhibition will also remain accessible until 31 December 2021.
