The Society

Welcome to the website of the European Underwater and Baromedical Society !

Our message of solidarity with the people of Ukraine has been moved to the sidebar posts, and will remain on top until this conflict has been resolved peacefully. 

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.

  • Our 47th Annual Scientific Meeting of EUBS in the beautiful seaside city of Porto (Oporto), Portugal, was a great success! The local organising committee, chaired by Dr Oscar Camacho of the Matosinhos Hyperbaric Unit and Chairman of the Portuguese Hyperbaric and Diving Medicine College, did a wonderful job, and both the scientific as the social programme were thoroughly enjoyed. It is safe to say that the EUBS Meeting again yielded many formal and informal contacts – this is one of the main purposes of meeting in-person as opposed to virtual conferences. The “‘conference bell’ has now officially been handed over to Professor François Guerrero, who will be the Secretary-General of our 2024 Annual Meeting in Brest, France.
  • The September 2023 issue of DHM will be published on Sept 30th, and is accessible to all EUBS members. For instructions on how to access the Journal, please see here.
    Those EUBS members that have selected a membership with Print Service will receive a properly printed paper copy in their mailbox within the following 2 weeks.
