Oncology Pain Gynecology

Dear colleagues!

We cordially invite you to the 21st International TCM Congress (TAO Congress) in Graz! As always, it is a LIVE congress, because face to face interaction is an important benefit!

With a new organisation team and a new congress structure, this year we offer for the first time 3 main topics: Oncology, Pain, and Gynaecology.

For each of these main topics there will be a parallel programme of workshops both in German or English. Basically, we offer 4-5 parallel workshops at the same time, with one dedicated “hands-on“ workshop, i.e. practical work! This means that you can either spend your 3 congress days completely focussed on one topic or alternate between the 3 topics. Just choose the way you feel more beneficial for you and your practice.

Of course, science will be important too: the plenary sessions on Thursday and Friday mornings (held in English only) will ensure you are fully up-to-date with the latest acupuncture & TCM research. New to the programme on Thursday morning is the Breakfast Journal Club, where current research papers will be presented and discussed over breakfast.

500 euros in prize money will be awarded to the Poster Award winner, and the submitted abstracts will be presented and judged in a poster presentation on Friday morning.

Also important are the social events such as guided city tours and the congress party, which only a LIVE congress can offer.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience TCM in Austria and feel the cosy atmosphere and ambience of our TAO Congress. Come to this special event and experience our “TAO: Traditionell - Amikal - Oesterreichisch“.

We look forward to your participation!

Yours sincerely,

We look forward to your participation!
Yours sincerely,
Dr Olivia Pojer & Dr Matthias Huemer
