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).
The first “International French-Language Hyperbarc and Diving Medicine Conference” is organised by the International Association of French Language Hyperbaric Centres (ICHF: association Internationale des Centres Hyperbares Francophones).
The ICHF seeks to promote collaboration between french-language hyperbaric teams and centres, and has members from France, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada, Caribbean Islands, Indian Ocean Islands, and Africa.
Having started with regular video-conferencing meetings, the ICHF now goes one step further and “voilà !” – the first ICHF congress has been born.
Diving Medicine is a narrow-banded speciality and professional development opportunities are relatively rare.

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.
