Dear Colleagues and Friends,
I am very pleased to announce that the 12th World Congress on Itch (WCI) will be held in the exciting city of Miami on Nov 5-7, 2023.
The IFSI World Congress on Itch is the world largest gathering of itch professionals. The WCI is a biennial meeting of the International Forum of the Study of Itch (IFSI) the leading authority on itch and the largest multidisciplinary association in the field of itch.
This premier event brings together clinicians, researchers, industry and other partners from around the world and across itch disciplines.
The scientific committee and the local organizer have developed an exciting comprehensive program that will promote understanding of basic and translational science of itch. We aim to increase our understanding of itch and foster cooperation and collaboration with itch experts from around the world and exchange ideas and education to stimulate support for the study of itch.
The 12th WCI will present a broad, deep and interesting scientific program that will cover all clinical and research areas related to itch as well as Special Interest Groups (SIGS).
The 12th WCI will be especially significant as we emerge from the difficult period of health and economic turmoil that occurred in the last several years that prevented us from attending meetings in person.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you at the 12th WCI in Miami and celebrate the major achievements that our field has made.
Gil Yosipovitch, MD
Chair Organizing Committee
