Annual Symposium

2021 Global Vitiligo Symposium

After canceling the 2020 GVF Symposium, we are can’t wait to see what the 2021 GVF Symposium will bring. We look forward to seeing you March 18, 2021, San Francisco, CA.


2020 Symposium Canceled

We regret to inform you that the 2020 GVF Annual Scientific Symposium has been canceled due to the spread of the COVID-19. The board of directors is working to develop a plan to share the information that was to be presented at the symposium. We will reach out to the community via our social media and website to update everyone on the plan. We appreciate your patience as we work through the development of the plan.


Each year GVF holds a call for abstracts for its annual scientific symposium. The symposium takes place on the Thursday before the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) conference. During the symposium attendees have the opportunity to receive an update on the work of GVF and hear research abstracts from some of the best researchers and clinicians in the world.
