Symposium Theme, Call for papers and Topic selection
ACUPUNCTURE: NEW WAYS FOR THE 21 st CENTURY MEDICINE.
This year's symposium will be focusing on the ongoing objectives set out by W.F.A.S. of improving Acupuncture-Moxibustion and Oriental Medicine, with a special focus on development of practical techniques and clinical application. We have organised extensive participation from prestigious Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine institutions from Japan and the rest of the world who will be presenting their modern, scientific perspectives. We aim to bring the best in competition and cooperation between institutions and individuals across different fields to further strengthen the modernisation of Acupuncture. There is no single right way between old and new or oriental and occidental. Through empirical and practical research we must find a better place for Acupuncture in the 21 st century. We call for all levels and fields of participation.
