The fundamental purpose of the conference is to provide 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.
"The dramatic surge in research and development in the field will be presented in the form of abstracts, clinical application courses, expert panels, controversy sessions, conversational experts in the exhibit hall, review courses, and cutting edge sessions to name a few," said Dr. Thomas E. Rohrer, 2013 Program Chair.
"Hot Topics" at Laser 2013 include cutaneous laser surgery, photobiomodulation, photodynamic therapy, interstitial laser devices, and experimental and translational research.
"We have an exceptional keynote speaker this year, Dr. Robert S. Langer, David H. Koch Institute Professor at MIT. Dr. Langer has written more than 1,175 articles and is the most cited engineer in history. We are very excited about his lecture," said Dr. Rohrer.

In March of 1979, Dr. Ellet H. Drake began working with Dr. Leon Goldman to establish an American society to encourage physicians and scientists to exchange knowledge, explore new uses for present equipment and generate new medical lasers and accessories. ASLMS has continued to grow with conference attendance at over 2,800 including approximately 160 commercial exhibits.
The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery is the world's largest scientific organization dedicated to promoting research, education and high standards of clinical care in the field of medical laser applications. It provides a forum for the exchange of scientific information and participates in communicating the latest developments in laser medicine and surgery to clinicians, research investigators, government and regulatory agencies, and the public.
