9th International Congress on Traditional Asian Medicines 2017

The 9th International Congress on Traditional Asian Medicines (ICTAM IX) has announced a call for panels. The general theme will be: “Asian Medicines: Encounters, Translations and Transformations”. Please see details of the conference and the call below.

About the conference


  • From 6 to 12 August 2017


  • Kiel, Germany

Vision statement

Asian medicine today is a multi-billion dollar industry. Asian medicines are engaged in complex global networks of actors: conservators who watch the changing supplies of wild plants in Asian mountains, medical botanists who study the substitution practices of collectors and marketers in Asia, policy makers who control or prevent the entry of drugs into European countries, corporations who seek to exploit drugs based on Asian medical knowledge, professional associations who seek to regulate Asian medical practice.  ICTAMs VII and VIII both took place in Asia (2009 in Bhutan, 2013 in Korea). The European location of ICTAM IX will allow us to take stock of the current state of Asian medicine and to examine the global flows of medical knowledge, practice and materials from a different but equally significant vantage point.
