The congress will run for 2½ days, with the morning of 11th April featuring a number of pre-congress workshops, the topics for which will be published closer to the conference date. The programme proper will begin after lunch that day and will feature plenary presentations from world experts in CAM research and practice as well as leading international healthcare policy thinkers and administrators. There will also be parallel sessions of symposia and oral presentations throughout the congress.
There will be 8 breakout periods during the congress, each of which will feature 4 parallel sessions of symposia and oral presentation sessions. We expect to offer at least 120 oral presentation opportunities at ICCMR 2013.
