Hello Corallist folks!

I hope this finds you all well! Below is a message regarding the deadline
for abstract submission for IMCC5, the premier marine conservation meeting!
If your work relates at all to marine conservation, I highly recommend you
consider submitting an abstract soon! :)


24 June – 29 June 2018

Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia (KCH)
Themed: *“Making Marine Science Matter”*

The Society for Conservation Biology’s Marine Section (SCB Marine) invites
you to attend the 5th International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC5),
which will be held *June 24 – 29 2018 in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia*
(Airport code: KCH). Abstract submission is now open
<https://conbio.org/mini-sites/imcc5/registration/call-for-abstracts/> with
one month remaining to submit an abstract *until 23:59 (NDT) on March 16th*!

IMCC is a biennial meeting organized by SCB Marine. IMCC brings together
more than 1,000 marine scientists, professionals, stakeholders, and
students from around the world. The 2018 IMCC will feature sessions on
widely ranging topics, including tourism, marine protected areas,
fisheries, communication, sustainable seafood, climate change, endangered
species, citizen science, public engagement and much more
<https://conbio.org/mini-sites/imcc5/about/71-research-questions/>. The
theme of IMCC5, *Making Marine Science Matter*, reflects our focus on
applying scientific research to conservation and sustainability. IMCC5 will
also feature the *OceansOnline* initiative, a full day dedicated to the
uses of communication and online resources for marine conservation, on *29
June 2018*. To represent the diversity of people involved in marine
conservation efforts around the globe, we’ve also sought to include events
to help represent this diversity of peoples, such as the 1st International
Marine Kids Conference
and Make for the Planet Borneo
<https://www.makefortheplanet.com/the-event-borneo/>. You can find more
information about our initiatives and special programs at

If you have any questions, please contact the meeting chairs. We hope to
see you all there!
