Abstract
In 1986, APLMS was established to promote the various activities of Laser Medicine Surgery in the Asia-pacific regions. The purpose of APLMS is not only to deliver academic information but also technological, industrial and social ones. Until now, the 9 congresses had been taken place in the different countries in Asia-Pacific regions. As the results of the 18 years' efforts, the organizations of each country on laser medicine and surgery have been established, and the network of researchers and clinicians has been completed. The next challenges are proposed such as education, training, and standardization of methods. To establish guidelines and regulation for laser medicine and surgery, and to transfer technology are also important issues.
