We strongly encourage submissions from individuals and in cutting-edge

review, however, all marine science and marine conservation submissions.
Our key criterion for prioritizing submissions is proposals that “make
marine science matter.”
OceansOnline session proposals:

OceansOnline proposals should be relevant to marine conservation
communication and online tools and resources for marine conservation and
marine science. Proposals for OceansOnline should select the “OceansOnline”
category and sub-category of workshop, tool demonstration or facilitated
discussion. You will be asked at submission to provide details on the
outputs of your OceansOnline session and the potential benefiting agencies.
You will also be asked about your plans for funding organiser/presenter
attendance at the session (e.g. through institutional funding, private
finance, IMCC travel grants, etc.).
