Dear Colleagues,

The 5th Asia-Pacific Coral Reef Symposium (APCRS) will be held at the National University of Singapore in 19–23 June 2023.

Call for Sessions extended through 20 July 2022 (Wednesday)
We invite researchers, graduate students, resource managers, policymakers and educators to submit proposals for meeting session titles and workshops at https://www.apcrs2023.org/Proposal.html.

The session and workshop titles that have already been proposed are appended below.

To propose a session theme, simply submit a potential title and a short description (maximum 200 words) to https://www.apcrs2023.org/Proposal.html. Please indicate designated Chairs/Co-Chairs (affiliation and email) of the proposed session.
