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!

Welcome to Prague
Situated in the northwest of the country on the Vltava River, Prague is the capital and the largest city of the Czech Republic. This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers, and church spires is also the fourteenth largest city in the European Union. The city is home to about 1.3 million people, but its larger urban zone has population of approximately 2 million. Since the Middle Ages Prague has cherished the reputation of one of the most beautiful cities in the world as well as the political, cultural, and economic center of central Europe.
