Edinburgh, Scotland, May 16, 2003. The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended to May 31 for the Joint International Laser Conference in Edinburgh, Sept. 21-23, 2003. Conference sponsors are the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), the European Laser Association (ELA) and the British Medical Laser Association (BMLA). As the first full meeting collaboration between the three groups, the conference will cover leading-edge laser procedures and technologies that can be applied anywhere in the world.

The Joint International Laser Conference will draw experienced and junior clinicians, investigative scientists, associate professionals and innovative engineers. The conference location is the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Scotland's premier conference venue, in the heart of Edinburgh.

Organizers already have a large body of abstracts from around the world that will ensure an excellent, world-class meeting. However, in this time of global uncertainty, a significant number of people may be waiting before committing themselves to travel or presentations. The extended deadline respects that uncertainty.

Internationally renowned keynote speakers will be R. Rox Anderson of Harvard/Wellman Laboratories, Ton VanLeeuwen of the University of Amsterdam and David Delpy of University College London.

The program's first day will be devoted to workshops and courses on such topics as hair removal by laser and intense pulsed light sources, laser resurfacing and skin photorejuvenation, laser safety, low-level laser therapy, nursing practice, photodynamic therapy and management of vascular lesions (including leg veins).

The second and third days will follow the format of scientific sessions on such topics as basic science and optical diagnostics, dentistry, dermatology, low-level light therapy, nursing, oncology and photodynamic therapy, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, surgery and associated subspecialties. Particular emphasis will be placed on technological advances that are close to clinical application and/or commercial development.

Scientific session chairs will be:
* Plastic Surgery/Dermatology -Roy Geronemus, Suzanne Kilmer, Ronald Wheeland,
Sean Lanigan
* Basic Science/Optical Diagnostics--Johannes de Boer, Martin van Gemert, Alfred Vogel
* PDT/Oncology Session--Richard Straight, Hubert van den Bergh, Brian Wilson
* Low Level Light Therapy--Juanita Anders, Zlatko Simunovic
* ENT--Vasant Oswal, Brian Wong
* Nursing--Penny Smalley, Kate Dixon, Dale Goodwin
* Laser Safety--David Sliney, Harry Moseley
* Surgery and Associated Subspecialties--Serge Mordon, Johan Beek

In addition to the scientific sessions, the meeting will highlight a number of other events including a trade exhibition, welcome reception, accompanying guest program and pre- and post-conference tours for those who wish to extend their stay in Scotland. Organizers have scheduled a Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lay), an informal social gathering featuring dinner and Scottish music, dancing and entertainment.
