Dear listers,
Perhaps of more interest to those who may not be going to ICRS and who may be relatively close by, consider participating in the GEOBON Open Science Conference - http://conf2016.geobon.org/ [http://conf2016.geobon.org/]

There will be a workshop in the All Hands meeting that will follow up on a Town Hall Meeting at ICRS (Wednesday 22 June, evening - "Global reef reporting – from science to policy”). The purpose is to identify potential Essential Biodiversity Variables for coral reefs, and how to move them through the GCRMN process into multiple end products, targeting local management needs, assessments at various levels (e.g. IUCN Red Listing of species & ecosystems), and national/global reporting on coral reef health).
The GEOBON conference is in Leipzig, Germany, 4-8 July, and there is still a chance to submit papers in the regular conference, till 15 April .
I’ll know more about the GCRMN/Essential Biodiversity Variables workshop in due course, so please get in touch if you’re interested in participating.
