2nd International Marine Conservation Congress
The IMCC is aimed at advancing marine conservation by facilitating discussion among scientists, managers and policy makers and developing science-based products that inform policy change and implementation. To meet this objective, the IMCC will include plenaries, contributed presentations and posters, symposia, workshops, focus groups and debates. During interactive symposia and workshops, participants will go beyond one-way communication by developing innovative solutions to current conservation challenges. Symposia will include a select group of speakers and creative discussion. Focus groups will consist of multi-disciplinary teams focused on crafting policy and management recommendations, briefings, white papers or peer-reviewed publications.
The theme of the congress is: Making Marine Science Matter.
Among the many symposia that will be held during the congress, two may be of particular interest to Gulf researchers: "The role of marine sciences in advancing conservation in the Gulf of Mexico: impacts and opportunities from the oil spill," and "Oil and fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico: ecological and economic impacts."
