Congress video

The world of acupuncture meets in Munich in September 2018, and you are welcome to join!

The ICMART-iSAMS 2018 will be an extraordinary and unique event, which will bring together the most renowned researchers, health professionals, educators as well as medical students, stakeholders and clinical providers of Acupuncture, TCM and related techniques from all over the world.

Excellent key note lectures, high quality scientific symposia, interactive sessions, video demonstrations, workshops, panel discussions, free oral and poster presentations from sunrise to dawn will ensure your clinical and scientific update on the highest level.

Over and above, it is time to show the power of acupuncture to the world!

Acupuncture, TCM and related techniques need worldwide recognition in health systems, acceptance by policy makers and integration into best clinical practice in order to advance patient care all around the globe. This congress aims to assemble and disseminate the scientific rationale and the mindset necessary to reach this goal.

We invite you to be part of this exciting process, to support and to shape the future of the integration and implementation of Acupuncture and TCM in the medical society.

The wonderful town of Munich will be the perfect place to cultivate and enjoy friendship, to exchange clinical experience, to facilitate the scientific debate and to form networks in a particularly friendly and warm atmosphere.

See you in Munich, the metropolis with heart

Sincerely, your hosts and co-chairs
