Wausau, WI – December 15, 2023  The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) is regarded as the top international society for the exchange of information on medical laser and energy-based technologies. 2024 marks the 43rd  year of the Annual Conference of the ASLMS.

ASLMS 2024 will be held April 11–14, 2024, at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland. A full-day pre-conference course on the Fundamentals of Lasers in Clinical Applications will take place on April 10 and the 4-day conference begins on April 11.

The ASLMS Annual Conference is known as the place where all the latest breakthroughs in the field of medical lasers and energy-based devices are first presented and discussed. Hundreds of clinical and basic science studies are submitted each year to highlight the latest developments and newest devices on the market.

The 2024 conference will feature a greater emphasis on the science and engineering behind the devices. In addition to the Basic Science and Translational Research abstract sessions, new workshops include How Does It Work? Inside the Machines, Lasers in Surgical Specialties: Basic Science and Translational Applications, Think Tank: Beyond the Shark Tank., and Fundamentals and Applications of Photobiomodulation (LLLT).

On April 11, the ASLMS Plenary Session will feature Mordecai D. Rosen, PhD, an acclaimed plasma physicist from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Dr. Rosen will discuss the world's largest laser at the National Ignition Facility (NIF), detailing the 2022 achievement of generating more fusion energy than the laser energy driving it—a breakthrough with implications for carbon-free, inherently safe fusion energy production.

With over 40 workshops, daily special sessions, and cutting-edge research studies, the ASLMS Annual Conference will be the go-to meeting in 2024 for practical knowledge and an understanding of the future of energy-based medicine.

The Society offers complimentary registration to qualified members of the press who wish to attend the conference. For more information about all registration options, visit
