The Annual Scientific Conference of the Society is the largest conference on laser and energy-based technologies for medicine held in the United States. The ASLMS Annual Conference provides a forum at which a multidisciplinary array of scientists, clinicians, residents, students, health care professionals, and industry representatives can learn, share, investigate, and create ideas; the outcomes of which are clinical applications that can and have changed the world of patient care.
Hundreds of scientific abstracts are presented annually, and symposia in each specialty, as well as common areas of interest, are included in the sessions to acquaint attendees with the latest developments and state-of-the-art clinical use of lasers and other energy-based devices.
Throughout the conference, guest speakers, including industry luminaries and award recipients, provide additional perspectives.
Specialty sessions, which deal in detail with specific areas of laser and other energy-based applications, comprise the other major part of the program. Attendees are free to attend the specialty breakout sessions and individual lectures of their choice, to develop individualized programs suiting their particular needs and interests. Prior to the conference, a variety of courses, from Fundamentals of Lasers to intermediate and advanced courses, provide further educational opportunities.
ASLMS is in its fourth decade as a world leader in promoting excellence in patient care by advancing biomedical application of lasers and energy-based technologies. If you work with medical lasers and other energy-based devices in a clinical, research, educational or manufacturing capacity and are committed to continuously improving patient care, this conference is for you!
One of the primary strengths of our Society is the diversity of our membership. The ASLMS Annual Conference is one of the very few conferences driven by a common technology rather than a common specialty. Experts in one field can learn about exciting developments occurring in other fields and integrate them into their own research or clinical practice.
