ILSC Update!

While the International Laser Safety Conference (ILSC) Call for Papers has been out for several months now, only a small number of abstracts have been submitted to date. Although typical for session chairs to have to “chase down papers,” it would be a welcome deviation from the norm to be able to send them abstracts from which to choose. 

Presentations or poster papers at laser safety professional conferences or meetings – and what better conference than ILSC – earn ½ CM point per presentation. This is in addition to the points earned from attending the conference. 

New for 2013 is the ILSC Poster Presentation Gallery, which will be featured throughout the conference. To be included in the poster gallery, submit your abstract at Presentations that submit a manuscript will be included in the ILSC Proceedings.

Laser Safety Scientific Sessions topics include:

  • Safety Standards Legislation – Local to Global
  • Bioeffects
  • Practical Laser Safety
  • Laser Safety Training
  • Outdoor Lasers
  • Control Measures
  • High Powered Laser Issues
  • Hazard & Risk Assessment
  • Measurements
  • Eye Protection
  • Non-beam Hazards & Fume Extraction
