Connecting art,

culture & aesthetics

August 30th – September 1st, 2018

Hotel Park Royal Palace, Vienna, Austria

The WAOCS Annual Scientific Meeting outlines a forum where dermatologists, plastic surgeons and scientists have an excellent opportunity to discuss both background and practical impact of ageing, aesthetics and related conditions and experience the latest developments and achievements in cosmetic surgery and aesthetic dermatology.



Each year, the international consulting firm Mercer carries out a study in order to assess the quality of life in 231 cities around the world. The results of the study in 2017 also gave Vienna top marks and made the Austrian federal capital the most livable city in the world for the eighth time in a row.

Vienna is also an excellent meeting place and we will organize a selection of cultural and historical activities for our participants.
