Abstract : The meeting herein reported constitutes a new and different ONRL approach to enhancing information exchange and cooperative research activity. An attempt was made to bring together as many investigators as possible from various countries of the world who are working in a narrow, confused, but increasingly important research area -- the psychological aspects of deep diving. Invitations were extended to all known individuals from military, civilian, and industrial laboratories in the U. S. and Europe working on psychological problems associated with deep diving or hyperbaric atmosphere. A total of 12 persons, from three countries, accepted the invitation and participated in the Conference. When considered on an international basis, the participants represented approximately 90 percent of all psychologists identified with diving.
