Note from the Symposium Presidents
There has been increasing interests and active researches in acupuncture and related techniques over the past few decades but it has often been difficult to reflect accomplishments of acupuncture and techniques using meridians in practice in forms of validated researches.
We are proud to be a part of 5,000 years long history of traditional Korean medicine, but we are always seeking ways to improve our knowledge.
We cordially invite distinguished scholars and researchers to join congress and establish academic network.
We hope this will enrich your understanding of Oriental medicine with open erspectives on various topics.
In an effort to build a momentum to step into the world of acupuncture research community, KPI and SMA joined together to host the 1st SAMS with bigger participation from around the world. For the 4th SAMS, the KIOM (Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine) will jointly host the symposium.

We would very much like to invite you to join us in Daejeon in October 2008.
