Late-Breaking News and Headlines: Call for Abstracts

Due to more meeting space becoming available, IMCC 2014 is opening a second Call for Abstracts in our effort to showcase the most up-to-date marine conservation science, policy and communications.

The second Call for Abstracts, Late-Breaking News & Headlines, for the 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress will open 13 May 2014. Those with late-breaking news or study results and anyone who missed the deadline in the first Call for Abstracts are welcome to submit.

The 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress will be held from 14-18 August 2014 at the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. All abstracts in the second call must be submitted online by 5pm (GMT) on 3 June 2014. Decisions will be made soon after the deadline. The selection process is highly competitive.

After reviewing so many impressive proposals and abstracts, and requests from SCB members, we've also added these important themes and topics to be featured at IMCC3:

- UK marine conservation initiatives

- Marine renewable energy

- Impacts of marine oil spills on marine and coastal ecosystems & fisheries

- Marine conservation and the media

- GMOs and aquaculture

- Future risks posed by marine diseases

- Threats to deep sea ecosystems

- Marine conservation on the high seas​

- Educational strategies for marine conservation​
