Since the first World Congress in Graz, Austria in 2004 the field of teledermatology has continued to expand across the globe providing much needed specialist dermatological advice to our colleagues and patients. This has been enhanced by both technological advances and the ubiquitous access to the internet and to smartphones. The 7th World Congress will provide updates on teledermatology and artificial intelligence, the use of teledermatology to connect both local and global providers and patients, consumer mobile teledermatology, tele-confocal and tele-pathology.

Parking is available in Garage 10, which is located on the east side of the Clark Clinic, for $12 per day. There are EasyPay Stations on the first, second and third floors, instead of a cashier. The EasyPay Station is a self-serve payment station and will take cash or credit cards. You feed your ticket into the machine, it tells you how much you owe, you then pay that amount and the machine returns your "paid" ticket. Take the "paid" ticket to the exit gate and feed it into a machine there to raise the gate and exit the garage.
Take the crosswalk on level 3 of Garage 10 into MD Anderson. The first set of elevators on your left (next to the guard station) can be used to access floor 11. As you exit the elevator on floor 11, you will be at the back of the auditorium. Turn to your left to follow the hallway to the registration desk and the front of the auditorium.
