The Laser Institute of America holds the next every-two-years International Laser Safety Conference on March 18-21 2019 near Orlando.


The Embassy Suites by Hilton Lake Buena Vista South hotel is at 4955 Kyngs Heath Road in Kissimmee, Florida. It is 20 miles southeast of Orlando International Airport, and about 6-10 miles from Walt Disney World attractions such as the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs.


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.”

The ILSC program is packed with opportunities to learn and network, including:

  • Plenary Session
  • Laser Safety Scientific Sessions
  • Medical Practical Applications Seminar
  • Technical Practical Applications Seminar
  • Poster Presentation Gallery
  • Sponsor Reception
  • Awards Luncheon
  • Networking Opportunities – meet colleagues from around the world!


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.
