Tokyo to host the 1st Meeting of the International Societies for Investigative Dermatology In 2023


Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau (TCVB) is delighted to announce winning the bid to host the 1st Meeting of the International Societies for Investigative Dermatology in 2023 (ISID2023)* after receiving the decision of the Board meeting held at the 42nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology (JSID) in December 2017.

ISID2023 is to be held from May 10-14, 2023 at Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo, and will be the first ISID Meeting. The gathering, anticipated to lead to future breakthroughs in investigative dermatology and cutaneous biology, expects to attract over 2,500 specialists from more than 50 countries. 

The main factor for Tokyo’s bid win was the recognition of Japan’s long-standing contribution to the ISID’s mission to strengthen the field of dermatology, both scientifically and internationally. JSID has confirmed its efforts to focus its power to open the gate to all Asian/Oceanian dermatologists, thereby fostering education/collaboration and creating a strong, expansive network particularly between young specialists and researchers in the region.

This honorable success for JSID would have never happened without the strong support from academia and government institutions, the long-term commitment of former JSID Presidents Masayuki AMAGAI and Shinichi SATO, current President Akimichi MORITA, Kenji KABASHIMA - JSID Board’s President-select for ISID2023 and other members of the Japan Bid Committee. Based on rich experience, TCVB fully supported the local bid committee in preparing a full bid proposal and presentation materials for the Board.

Furthermore, assured financial and in-kind support from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) were decisive factors.

The convening of ISID in Tokyo - the center of academic activities of many research-oriented societies, will surely have a significant impact on academia in Japan as well as on all Asian/Oceanian countries. TMG and TCVB will continue supporting the ISID and the JSID to deliver a successful and unforgettable 1st ISID2023 in Tokyo.

* About the International Societies for Investigative Dermatology
The ISID was founded in Edinburgh in 2013 through close cooperation between three sister societies - the JSID, the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) and the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR). In a striking accomplishment of internationalization under the spirit of ‘unity for all of investigative dermatology’, the remarkable history began as ‘Tri-Continental Meetings‘ in 1989 to 2018. ISID will be the first meeting to include other Asian/Oceanian societies.
