February 2010 Edition


Welcome to the latest edition of our Congress e-Newsletter to keep you up to date with the 6th World Congress for Hair Research in Cairns from 16-20 June – now under six months away!

We had a terrific response to our Call for Abstracts and, due to popular demand,  have now extended the abstract submission deadline to 12 February 2010.

With early fee registrations closing on 31 March, and less than six months to go until the Congress kicks off at the Cairns Convention Centre, international delegates will need to start applying for their visas and booking flights and accommodation to ensure their stay in Australia goes without a hitch.

You can register online via the Congress website or download a copy of the Registration Brochure which can be found on the website at www.hair2010.org

The website also contains the Scientific Program including Pre-Congress Symposia, the Social Program and the local, regional and interstate tour options available for delegates and accompanying persons.

The Congress Organising Committee remains determined that this will be a congress and holiday that you will never forget and hope you will come join us for an outstanding week of education, networking, fun and enjoyment.

Warm regards,

Rod Sinclair - HAIR2010 Convenor
Professor of Dermatology,
University of Melbourne & St Vincent’s Hospital
