Dear colleagues, dear friends; welcome to the 20th international ISLA conference, the postponed anniversary edition of our annual conferences on the latest developments and research in Medical Laser Therapy. In this eventful year of 2020, we are very happy to still being able to bring this event to you – with a reduced in-person set-up and, for the first time, an additional option for virtual attendance.
As an online attendee, you will be able to follow all of the simultaneously translated presentations live and send your questions to a chat room. Our team will try to answer them during the event or come back to you with an answer from our experts.
Additionally, we will make sure that the recordings of the talks will be permanently available for all of our attendees as a little bonus. So do not worry about timeshifts or missing your favorite lecture – we will have you covered.
