Presenting the Best of Homeopathy Research

Pursuing its aim of promoting high quality research in homeopathy, the HRI hosted its second international conference in Rome, on 5–7th June 2015. After the success of the Barcelona conference in 2013, putting together another equally successful conference was no mean feat. However, the HRI team was determined to make Rome 2015 another landmark event for homeopathy research.

The conference in Rome explored the latest research findings, with presentations by researchers from across the globe. The conference sold out weeks in advance, setting the scene for an intense meeting: 250 delegates came from 39 countries to hear presentations by 35 speakers. Oral and poster presentations were selected from 116 submitted abstracts. Overall the scientific quality was higher than submissions made for Barcelona, reflecting the general trend toward increased standards in the field. It was particularly pleasing to see an increase in the number of abstracts suitable for poster presentation, from 25 in Barcelona to 35 in Rome. The program included many excellent presentations, which prompted vibrant audience interaction and sparked fascinating discussions.
