Our 47th Annual EUBS Scientific Meeting will be held September 13-16, 2023, in Porto, Portugal. This city was voted the best urban destination in Europe at the World Travel Awards 2022.

The EUBS hopes to welcome all of its members and many friends and scientists from around the world for this four-day conference.

The scientific program is very rich and interesting with the presentation of research work ranging from basic science to clinical trial without forgetting the experience and work of the different centers. The quality of care of critical patients in the hyperbaric environment will also be discussed, which is a very important subject.

I am sure that you will enjoy your stay in Porto, a modern and romantic city with a diversified and high-quality social program.

I look forward to seeing you soon.
