International Symposium of the Tradmed International -2017 aims to provide a multinational platform where the latest research evidence in service delivery and production of TM and CM can be presented and discussed in a friendly environment with the aim to learn from each other.
Researchers will be offered an opportunity to share their research findings through oral and poster presentations. Abstracts to be presented will be selected based on the scientific validity through peer review by a panel of internationally selected reviewers who are specialized in each subject. Approximately 120 original abstracts will be selected for oral presentation and 100 abstract will be selected for poster presentation.
The Symposium will cover a wide scope of TM and CM related issues under the two broad themes of ‘Traditional Medicine and Complementary Medicine service delivery for health promotion, disease prevention and management’ and ‘Safety, quality, efficacy, and regulation of Traditional Medicine and Complementary Medicine products’. The broad themes are subdivided into twelve tracks. Hereby you are invited to submit abstracts of your research findings under one or more of the tracks.
All abstracts selected for oral and poster presentations will be published as a publication of the proceedings of the Conference. The outstanding abstracts (100-150) will be published in the Biomed Central Journal of Complementary and Alternative medicine (Impact Factor- 2.288). This is the first time that Sri Lankan Traditional Medicine Symposium proceedings will be published in an International Journal listed in PubMed of the US National Library of Medicine.
