ESLD Thursdays

European Society for Lasers and Energy Based Device

In this section of the ESLD website you can find the events we used to call the “ESLD Thursdays”. During the pandemic ESLD decided to continue the teaching for the members with a virtual session held on Thursday evening between 6 and 7 pm CET.

During these sessions leading experts from all over the world participate in a panel to discuss relevant topics. The aim of these sessions is to critically appraise the scientific evidence and practical use of lasers and energy based devices.

We encourage all participants to ask questions directly to the experts which makes the event even more interactive.

Members have access to videos of these events in the members' video section (category: Esld thursdays)
