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.

  • The COVID-19 Pandemic is affecting activities of hyperbaric centres all over Europe. The European Committee for Hyperbaric Medicine (ECHM) has issued guidelines and recommendations for hyperbaric centres. The hyperbaric treatment environment creates unique challenges and risks, that need to be considered and evaluated, besides the general recommendations issued by local, national and international health care authorities. Please see this urgent post.
  • EUBS2020 Annual Scientific Meetingour 46th Annual Scientific Meeting will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from Sept 16-19, 2020. Prague is a charming city with a rich history, which has been a political, cultural and economic center of central Europe. Due to its location it has direct air links with most European capitals and direct air connection from Frankfurt am Main, Germany, for connecting to overseas flights to other continents.
    Although hyperbaric medicine has a long tradition, in 2020 we will celebrate the 55th anniversary of the establishment of this medical field in Czech Republic.The EUBS Annual Meeting will be held for the very first time in the Czech Republic and only a second time in the countries of the former so-called Eastern Bloc. The conference will focus on the research, physiological as well as medical aspects of hyperbaric and diving medicine and evidence-based medicine. An interesting and exciting social program is also in preparation.
    The conference website,, is now open with all information, accepting registration and abstracts – please note the Early Bird Registration Deadline of April 30, 2020 – it is a good idea to visit the site now and prepare your abstracts, and of course, you are most welcome to bring your family and stay a bit longer in the beautiful city of Prague !
