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!
Michal Hajek, MD, PhD.
Secretary General, Chairman of Local Organizing Committee, 46th Annual EUBS Scientific Meeting 2022.
With great honour, I welcome you to Porto for the EUBS 2023 congress where I am sure we will have an exciting and inspiring time.
We have prepared a high-level scientific program including keynote lectures by invited expert speakers, selected oral communications, poster displays, and exciting social events where you can enjoy the friendly and beautiful city of Porto.
We strive to make this conference an unforgettable experience, where we can all meet old and make new friends, and establish new initiatives and collaborations in this ever-developing field of Hyperbaric and Diving Medicine.
We hope to see you all in Porto!
