A mini-conference on laser-induced fluorescence in plasmas was held on 29 October 2003 as part of the 45th meeting of the Division of Plasma Physics of the American Physical Society. This paper summarizes material discussed in the talks presented as part of the mini-conference. The mini-conference was also an occasion to honor Raul Stern on his 75th birthday and to recognize his many contributions to plasma physics and to the applications of laser-induced fluorescence.
