EUBS2015 Amsterdam

Welcome to the Website of the European Underwater and Baromedical Society.

The EUBS is the European scientific society dedicated to the study and promotion of diving and hyperbaric medicine, a fascinating but all too little known field of medicine.
This website is intended to provide you with information on the goals and activities of our Society. You will find information on our Annual Scientific Meeting, as well as reprints of the Society's Journal. This site is updated on a regular basis, so check it out from time to time.

      • The PHYPODE book "The Science of Diving" is available for purchase online (www.morebooks.de, click on this link to go directly to the book's page, or on Amazon through this link). Apart from being a must-read overview of recent diving medicine and physiology research topics, the sales profits of this book will be donated to EUBS - thus helping further the progress and advance of our field. Just in case you need another reason to go online and buy the book ?

      • Research and Courses Page: please visit this page regularly for announcements of new events, courses and research projects seeking enrollment !

      • EUBS membership: as from 2016 on, EUBS Membership will be running from January 1st to December 31st - and not any longer from July to June. Therefore, your current membership will automatically be valid until December 31st, 2015 (a half year's bonus, hoorray !). You will receive an automatic reminder three, two and one month before renewal date. Many members have asked us to have an "automatic payment renewal system" so that they do not have to do the renewal payment manually. We are looking into the technical possibilities to offer this for next renewal. New members paying after September 1st will automatically be listed as a member for the full year thereafter; however, you will only start receiving the paper version of our Journal as from the first issue of the next year (you will have access to the PDF version, however). If you become a member before September 1st, you will be given access to the past issues of our Journal of the current year, and will start receiving the paper version of the Journal immediately; however, you will be required to renew your membership on December 31st. In case you do not renew in time, your membership benefits will stop effective on January 31st. You can renew however online by accessing your membership pages from this website, for at least one year after your "drop out". If you cannot access your membership pages (anymore) to renew, please send us an e-mail, we'll be happy to restore your account.
