The Laser Institute of America holds the next every-two-years International Laser Safety Conference on March 20-23 2017, at the Sheraton Atlanta Airport Hotel.
ILDA is a Cooperating Society, and ILDA Members receive the discounted LIA member registration rate.
ILSC is “a comprehensive four-day conference covering all aspects of laser safety practice and hazard control. Scientific sessions will address developments in regulatory, mandatory and voluntary safety standards for laser products and for laser use. The Practical Applications Seminars (PAS) complement the Scientific Sessions by exploring everyday scenarios that the LSO and MLSO may encounter. Professionals in all fields and applications will find ILSC a tremendous source for information and networking opportunities.”
While most of ILSC is about medical, research, industrial and military laser safety, there are usually three or four papers about laser display and consumer lasers (pointers). There also is a joint meeting of the ANSI Z136.10 committee working on safety standards for laser display.
In past years, laser display industry attendees have included ILDA’s Executive Director and the Safety Committee chair (who have frequently presented papers), plus ILDA Members wanting to attend sessions, work on ANSI Z130.10, and network with laser safety experts.
Note that there are no laser safety officer courses taught at ILSC. Instead, it is a scientific conference with educational sessions and papers being delivered and discussed.
