Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine


Date: 23−29 September 2018

Venue: Durban, South Africa


After a very successful first edition in 2013 on Reunion Island, our next Tricontinental Scientific Conference will take place in the coastal city of Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.

We are once again organising a full week with scientific days interspersed between diving workshops and social events. The academic programme will include presentations, workshops, discussion sessions and special topic conferences. Our social calendar encompasses a welcome cocktail party, a gala dinner and the ever popular post-conference happy hour. There will be opportunities to dive the nearby Aliwal Shoal, visit wildlife game parks, take in a local rugby match and explore Zulu culture.

A Joint Organising Committee from EUBS, SPUMS, SAUHMA and the Scott Haldane Foundation will work together with local Durban Hyperbaric Centre staff and a South Africa Event Management Bureau to make sure everything runs smoothly. 

A combination of easy access, friendly people, rich culture, nature at its most spectacular and affordable prices makes this an opportunity not to be missed. The weather in September is ideal with temperatures in the low 20s on land and sea and little chance of rain. Why not plan an extra week before or after the conference to travel the area and experience more of South Africa's amazing diversity, hospitality and wildlife. Bring your family too - there are lots of child-friendly activities nearby!

We very much look forward to seeing you there.
