Dear Colleagues,

We are glad to let you know that the 6th World Congress of Dermoscopy will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina from the 16th to the 19th of October 2024.

We are working on all the preparations to offer you an excellent scientific programme and also an array of social activities that we are sure you will enjoy.

Buenos Aires is the perfect excuse for you to join us and enjoy this big and cosmopolitan city. For those who decide to take a few days off before or after the Congress, you can enjoy Iguazu Falls in the north, whales in the south, sea and beaches in the east and mountains and snow in the west. All the best in our country in a two-hour flight.

Since the 5th World Congress of Dermoscopy in Tessaloniki (Greece) in 2018, the advances and scientific publications on Dermoscopy have been many and we are sure that the Congress Program will be very interesting for all those who attend.

Although we still have little more than one year and a half left, we want to invite you to get ready for this Congress.

We are willing to receiving you in Buenos Aires.

Kindest regards

Horacio Cabo
6th World Congress of Dermoscopy 2024

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 anelectrical 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"
