Abstract : The Program featured state-of-the-art reviews by eminent authorities, followed by shorter research papers selected by the Symposium Governing Board from submitted mini-papers. In response to the Call for Papers, more than 100 contributions were received, of which 46 were selected for oral presentations in symposia and 37 were programmed as poster presentations. Symposia included the following topics: Oxygen Toxicity, Oxygen Sufficiency and Utilization within the Cell, Metabolism and Thermal Physiology, Molecular and Cellular Effects of Hydrostatic Pressure, High Pressure Nervous Syndrome, Cardio-Respiratory Responses to Exercise, Inert Gas Exchange and Decompression, Health Hazards. Attendance for the Symposium was gratifying, with a total of 298 registrants representing 25 countries. The majority (65%) were from countries other than the U.S.A.
