The Conference and Event Services Department of the British Association of Dermatologists is responsible for the organisation of the majority of meetings, conferences and events held on behalf of the Association.
European data protection law known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into effect on May 25th 2018.
This Policy sets out how we collect, process and safeguard the personal information you provide to us specifically in regards to our events. Here at the British Association of Dermatologists we take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to administer your account and to provide the information and services you have requested from us.
The BAD have been advised by overseas and U.K. Doctors of “scam” dermatology conferences taking place in the U.K. and around the world. Please beware of scam companies pretending to offer accommodation and registration for the Psoriasis from Gene to Clinic Congress. Only trust information from our official website and the official accommodation provider Ellis Salsby
We would like to bring to your attention three schemes that are targeting dermatologists worldwide at present. We advise maintaining a high index of suspicion.
(1) Fictitious agents and websites for genuine dermatology meetings. Don’t use links within emails which may be scams. Search for the genuine site by going to the organising society’s known website and then using links. Check the address banner at the top of the page to make sure it is genuine.
(2) Unrecognised/Fictitious meetingsand conferences. Check the website to identify if the meeting is organised by a recognised society. Double check by looking at the society’s known website and checking that the meeting is genuinely associated.
(3) Unrecognised journals: Open access journals which nobody has heard of requesting a substantial fee for publication. Don’t send your material or any money to a journal you are not familiar with. If you are paying a fee for open access, double check to make sure you are sending your £1000s to the right person.
