Aim and History
Aim
The International Scientific Acupuncture and Meridian Symposium (iSAMS) was established to provide a platform for information exchange and discussion between scholars to enhance the quality of Oriental Medicine research and to build an international research network. The iSAMS is intended to be a dynamic meeting that focuses on bringing researchers with the most up-to-date information and experience, practitioners in the field of Integrative Medicine, and the public together.
History
The Korean Pharmacopuncture Institute (KPI) successfully hosted symposia on acupuncture research in 2001 and 2003. In 2005, the Organizing Committee announced the official name as the Symposium on Acupuncture and Meridian Studies (SAMS). Since then, the Annual international symposium has been officially hosted by the Korean Pharmacoupuncture Institute (KPI), the Society for Meridians and Acupoints (SMA), and the International Pharmacopuncture Institute (IPI).
In 2011, the SAMS was renamed the iSAMS (International Scientific Acupuncture and Meridian Symposium) to broaden its scope beyond Korea. Since then, the iSAMS has grown year by year and has focused more and more on developing the wisdom of the traditional medicine that has been handed down through the generations. Additionally, the iSAMS has come to be recognized as a premier international conference in the rapidly growing field of pharmacopuncture because of the prominence of its attendees, the quality of the research presented and discussed at the meetings, and its being held on a different continent each year. To date, scholars from more than 20 nations have participated in the annual conferences, and over 200 lectures have been given. The Organizing Committee continues to work tirelessly to balance the strengths of both traditional and modern medicine.
