The Society

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.

  • DIVING AND HYPERBARIC MEDICINE JOURNAL (DHM) – the June (48/2) issue has been published ! Please visit your Membership Pages to access the digital file. Furthermore, the DHM Editorial Office is pleased to announce that the 2017 Impact Factor (IF) of our Journal is 1.197 – pretty good and stable. Please remember that IF are calculated based on the content of the journal, so please continue to send your contributions !
  • EUBS ExCom elections: before July 1st, each EUBS member will receive an internet ballot sheet by e-mail, to elect a new Vice-President and a Member at Large for our Society. You can find the CVs of all candidates here. If you did not receive a ballot by July 31st, please notify the EUBS secretary – sometimes this e-mail ends up in a Spam filter…
  • PLEASE DO NOT FORGET to register for the next Annual Scientific Meeting, TRICON2018. After a very succesful first Tricontinental Meeting on Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine (REUNION2013), we will again, with our colleagues of SPUMS and SAUHMA, organise a joint scientific meeting – this time in Durban, SouthAfrica, from September 23-29 2018. Go to the TRICON2018 website ( to find all information, send your abstract and register !
