The annual International Master Course on Aging Skin (IMCAS) held in Paris from January 6 to 9, 2011 has once again shown itself to have a high level platform for scientific exchange, industrial news and medical teaching.
This year we had the pleasure of welcoming 3 300 registrants coming from 40 different countries. Three hundred speakers from all 4 corners of the globe covered every aspect relative to the evaluation and treatment of aging skin.
Scientific plenary sessions, the IMCAS Industry Tribune, live surgery, satellite symposia, live demonstrations, new devices and research sessions, and teaching courses were all dedicated to share a high level of knowledge provided by the best specialists in the field, coming from all around the world.
We also feel important to remember that IMCAS adheres to international criteria that are the basis for any reputable congress. Thus, we insist on complete independence between instructional (or scientific) courses and the industry sponsors of our Congress.
In addition, two new events have marked these 4-day calendar:
- the IMCAS incubator corner, a brand new platform allowing exchanges between R&D industrials and inventors
- la NUIT des IMCAS AWARDS, during which an independant jury has awarded 5 doctors for their scientific work or study
Many thanks to all our participants for their great contribution!
