  • In 2011 it was convened at the University of California (Irvine) and focused on cardiovascular and pain research. This year the theme is “Moving Acupuncture Research Forward - Issues and Solutions” and there will be several themed streams highlighting the different methods and approaches associated with acupuncture research. These streams include clinical, mechanistic, public health, integrative and qualitative research. Presenters from Korea, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, USA, UK, Norway and Sweden as well as several notable local speakers will present their views on how to increase and broaden the evidence base for acupuncture as well as highlight their recent research.
