“We have created an outstanding educational conference that has something for everyone – from scientists and physicians to clinical engineers and allied health professionals – regardless of their core specialty or level of technological experience,” said ASLMS President R. Rox Anderson, MD. “Program offerings will also include specialty tracks as well as cross-disciplinary exchanges to enhance the information flow to all attendees.”
Invited Guest Speakers
Charles H. Townes, Ph.D., father of lasers, Nobel Laureate and a professor of physics at the University of California Berkeley, will be honored in person for his lifetime achievements in the field of laser research. Dr. Townes first demonstrated the maser in 1954 and later published the theoretical principles of the laser, earning him the Nobel Prize in physics in 1964.
Howard Schlossberg, Ph.D., the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research’s program manager and a world leader in the development of the laser technologies, will be the Keynote Speaker of LASER 2010. Dr. Schlossberg’s pioneering research efforts have resulted in both military and civilian applications, particularly advances related to the nation’s defense superiority.
