Scientific research on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has become active in the USA due to rapid growth in the research sponsored by the USA government. In late autumn 2001, the authors visited the University of Hawaii and the Hawaii Remote Viewers' Guild (HRVG), and also Healing' to promote academic communication between East and West. The University of Hawaii has a plan to establish a new department of alternative medicine by 2005. HRVG uses the Internet for experiments and education. At the conference, there were approximate 40 reports abd lectures on research for subtle energy, anomalous somatic functions, traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine, physiology of non-local connection, free-response psi experiment and intuitive diagnosis. Themes of many studies were in common with Asian ones. But, Japanese, Chinese and Taiwanese studies had a tendency to regard individuality of subjects as important compared with othere studies.
