Global Diving Conference in Germany
Get yourself to Kiel in November to hear some impressive speakers
Set for the weekend of 12th and 13th November 2011, the headline speaker is ‘the man who packs every lecture room – Professor Simon Mitchell’.
Professor Mitchell is an anaesthesiologist, a diving physician and one of the Southern hemisphere’s leading lecturers in the field of scientific diving physiology. He is also a member of the famed Explorers Club, and has been diving since he was aged just 14 in 1972.
More than this though, organisers say this diving doctor has an uncanny knack of being able to explain PFOs and CO2 retention to a three year old.
At the Oztek event in Australia, people were turned away from his presentations simply because the room was full. And the same happened again at EUROTEK here in the UK, so visitors are advised to get in his lectures early.
Also at the GDC will be speakers including Pierre-Yves Cousteau, Phill Short, JP Imbert and Jarrod Jablonski. Topics covered will include Wrecks of the Baltic Sea, the Castleguard Canadian Cave Project, Cutting-Edge Decompression Theory and Disputed Diving Practices.
Also on the roster are Thresher Shark Research, Human Factors, UK Cave Diving, and the discovery of a Prehistoric Fish; the Quatenflosser.
A weekend pass including Dinner on the Saturday night comes in at US$142 (approx 87 quid). To register your place at the Global Diving Conference, check out the official website.
