Calling all Divers – "come to Kiel this November"

This year's Global Diving Conference will be held on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November in Kiel, with the headline speaker being 'the man who packs every lecture room - Professor Simon Mitchell'.

For those of you who have not yet had the privilege of listening to Simon speak, you're in for a treat. He's an anaesthesiologist, a diving physician and one of the Southern hemispheres leading lecturers in the field of scientific diving physiology. But what sets Simon apart from other diving doctors is his uncanny knack of being able to explain about PFOs and CO2 retention to a three year old. Suddenly large slabs of information just fall into place and one leaves the lecture theatre wondering "now why didn't I see and understand that before, it's so obvious". It's little wonder that at Oztek people were turned away from his presentations simply because the room was full. The same happened again at EUROTEK, so here's a hot tip. Be in his lectures early. You'll laugh a lot and learn quite a bit too.

During the weekend you'll also get the chance to listen to the likes of Pierre-Yves Cousteau, Phill Short, JP Imbert and Jarrod Jablonski. 

Over 15 speakers will wax lyrical about exciting topics such as the Wrecks of the Baltic Sea, the Castleguard Canadian Cave Project, Cutting-Edge Decompression Theory, Disputed Diving Practices, Thresher Shark Research, Human Factors, UK Cave Diving, and the discovery of a Prehistoric Fish; the Quatenflosser.
