Greetings Researchers and Diving Professionals,
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding Rebreather Forum 4 (RF4), Thursday through Saturday, 20-22 April 2023 at the old University of Malta campus in Valetta, Malta, sponsored by DAN Europe, DAN, PADI and Heritage Malta.
The purpose of the scientific and trade-only meeting is to advance the diving community’s state of knowledge regarding rebreather technology and its uses, with the goal of improving rebreather diving safety and performance. Proceedings of the meeting will be published and made publicly available.
While we work on organising the event, we have set up a preliminary website with the basic details and a place for you to express your interest and get on our mailing list for updates. We expect to have registration up and running soon. And yes, there will be diving—shipwreck diving to be specific, with the help of our friends at RAID and Heritage Malta!
Please visit REBREATHERFORUM.tech, check out our plans and register your interest. If you are interested in being a sponsor, and or exhibiting at RF4, please contact the organiser directly.
RF4 will actually be the fifth such meeting held by the diving industry. The Rebreather Forum, and Rebreather Forum 2 were held in 1994 and 1996 when rebreathers were just becoming available to our community. Rebreather Forum 3 which was held in 2012 and was followed by the Rebreathers and Scientific Diving Workshop in 2015. Proceedings of these meetings are available as downloads on the RF4 site.
Needless to say, we are hoping to make RF4 a truly epic event that you won’t want to miss. Thank you for your interest. I look forward to seeing you in Malta!
