Baltic International Symposium on Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine (BIS_DHM) @ Hotel Nadmorski, Gdynia, Poland
Jun 9 – Jun 11 all-day

Dear Colleagues,
We can finally meet on the second Baltic International Symposium on Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine (BIS_on_DHM) which will be held face-to-face between 9th and 11th June 2022 in Gdynia, Poland. First edition of the Symposium in 2018 received good review of specialists (see http://www.bisdhm.events/data/files/dhm_vol48no3-infoonbisondhm.pdf), so we decided to keep organising this event every second year. COVID-19 disrupted our plans for a while, but now we are back on track.
This year we have excellent lecturers which will present advances in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine taking into account the most current topics, including COVID-19, transcriptomics, oxygen toxicity, fatal accidents investigations and fire in hyperbaric chambers – see the program on our website. The workshop on Complications in the HBOT will include also fire-fighting drills inside the hyperbaric chamber, either at normobaric conditions or – if you dare – at high pressure. You will get really wet!
We are aware that there is a short time to make arrangements, but please look at the program and the list of presenters and remember that Gdynia – located just at the Baltic sea-side – this time of the year is really nice.
More information, registration and hotel reservation can be found here: www.BISDHM.events.

EUBS Annual Scientific Meeting @ NH Hotel Prague City
Aug 31 – Sep 3 all-day

Dear friends and colleagues,

let me address you again and say that once again, after 2 years of delays, we are ready to hold the 46th Annual EUBS Scientific Meeting 2022 in full face-to-face form.

The current epidemiological situation and its outlook for the spring and summer seasons of this year looks favourable. It is also necessary to say that the last two summer seasons, both in the Czech Republic and in its capital city Prague, were very stable in terms of travel, tourism and leisure activities, allowing both free travel and encounters in both outdoor and indoor areas without any significant restrictions and prohibitions.

The current date was set from 31st August to 3rd September 2022. The centre and venue of the conference is still the same, it is a prestigious four-star hotel from an international network called NH Prague City Hotel, located at a short distance from the Vltava River and the city centre.

Our highest wish is that the upcoming conference, practically after a three-year pause, will be attended by as many participants and visitors as possible, because we feel that our professional community is driven by the desire to meet in person both during lectures and discussions, and especially during social events after the end of the official scientific program, as has been the case at dozens of previous conferences.

I believe that in the future we will only remember well that we participated in the first post-covid conference in history! Welcome to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic and the world venue of hyperbaric and diving medicine in 2022!
