Dear friends and colleagues,
The City of Buenos Aires has been chosen to host the 6th World Congress of Dermoscopy, to be held in 2021.

We are aware of the honor and responsibility of such under taking. We accept his challenge with great enthusiasm, and to get her with the Organizing Committee, weas sure you that we shall organize a highly successful Congress.

The city boasts major attractions: museums, parks, excellent global connections, safety and the beauty of its classic and modern architecture. Its passions for tango and soccer, as well as the traditional “asado” barbecue, wines and remarkable gastronomy, make it one of the most “tourist-friendly” cities in the world.

The WCD has never been held in LatinAmerica. This task group thinks that 2021 could be a great opportunity, with the help of the world key opinion leaders in Dermoscopy, to spread their knowledge and expertise to the global professional community in our amazing city.

We invite you to join us in a Congress you will never forget.

Floralis Genérica is a sculpture made of steel and aluminum located in Plaza de las Naciones Unidas, Avenida Figueroa Alcorta, Buenos Aires, a gift to the city by the Argentine architect Eduardo Catalano. Catalano once said that the flower "is a synthesis of all the flowers and, at the same time, a hope reborn every day at opening." It was created in 2002. The sculpture was designed to move, closing it spetals in the evening and opening them in the morning.

One of the characteristics of the flower is an electrical system that automatically opens and closes the petals depending on the time of the day. At nigh the flower closes, emanating a red glow from in side, and reopens ("...is reborn...") the following morning. This mechanism so closes the flower if strong winds blow. It opens every morning at 8 and closes at sunset, on a schedule that changes according to the season

According to Eduardo Catalano, the author, Floralis "means belonging to the flora and therefore the flowers", and Genérica "from the concept of "gender" and indicates that it represents all the flowers in the world"
