Dear colleagues,


Please find below some important updates on the 7th International Marine
Debris Conference (7IMDC), which is scheduled to take place from 18-23
September 2022 in Busan, Republic of Korea.


The Call for Abstracts and Posters is Open!


The Call for Abstracts and Posters for the 7IMDC was launched on the 31st of
March 2022, and is open until Friday the 29th of April, 2022. Successful
abstract proposals will be offered a speaking time within the Technical
Session to which the abstract is submitted, while successful poster
proposals will be offered a space at the conference's poster event.
Abstracts and posters will be evaluated on their technical merit as well as
on their interest and relevance to the greater marine debris and plastic
pollution community. For more information, please review the Abstracts and
Posters page <https://7imdc.org/program/abstracts>  on the 7IMDC website,
where you will also find the link to the online submission form, which will
be via the ExOrdo Platform <https://7imdc.exordo.com/login> . Each submitter
will need to create a unique user ID and password in Ex Ordo (at no cost) to
submit an abstract or poster.


Technical Sessions Selected


The Call for Technical Sessions was open from November 2021 to January 2022,
and it received an impressive response - the number of proposals submitted
was almost double what the conference can accommodate. The selection process
was rigorous, and in the end 115 Technical Sessions were accepted by the
7IMDC's Executive Committee, organized around 9 thematic tracks. All final
Technical Sessions, with titles and full descriptions, can be found on the
Technical Sessions page <https://7imdc.org/program/technicalSession>  of the
7IMDC website . Proposal submitters were notified by email on 13-14 March
2022 of their proposal's status - if you did not receive any notification,
please check your spam folder or contact info at 7IMDC.org
<mailto:info at 7IMDC.org> . If your proposal was not accepted as a Technical
Session, we strongly encourage you to consider resubmitting your proposal as
an Abstract or a Poster. 


Conference Format


Please note that the 7IMDC will be optimized to be primarily an in-person
event, however the conference will have hybrid elements and will provide
options for remote attendance. Session chairs and presenters will be kindly
requested to attend the conference in-person, however should this not be
possible then pre-recorded presentations will be considered.  We will have
more guidance on this available on the website in due course. 




Registration for the conference will open soon, and more details will be
posted on the 7IMDC website in due time. 


Travel Awards


A limited number of travel awards will be made available to enable the
participation of persons from low-income countries and small island
developing states who may not otherwise be able to attend the conference.
More information will be posted on the 7IMDC website by the time
registration opens.
