In addition, there will be a unique opportunity to visit the remains of the former Hyperbaric Chamber Laboratory with a guided tour.

The dates of EUBS2019 will be September 9-12, 2019, and it will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel, at the David Intercontinental Hotel. The conference will be jointly organised with an International Conference on Hyperbaric Oxygen and the Brain. This period has been chosen as it is after the summer break but just before the high holidays in Israel. Tel Aviv is an exciting hypermodern coastal city, with top-notch medical research and treatment facilities, but also bustling with beaches, restaurants and nightlife.
The conferences will be hosted by the Israeli Society for Hyperbaric and Diving Medicine, and the dedicated conference website www.eubs2019.com is already accessible (registrations and abstract submissions will start from October 2018).
