The Marine Section of the Society for Conservation Biology is pleased to
announce the International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) - Making
Marine Science Matter.
 
Dates: May 20-24, 2009
 
Location: George Mason University, Washington DC 
 
The IMCC will be an interdisciplinary meeting that will engage natural
and social scientists, managers, policy-makers, and the public. The goal
of the IMCC is to put conservation science into practice through public
and media outreach and the development of science-based deliverables
(e.g., policy briefs, blue ribbon position papers) that will be used to
drive policy change and implementation. 
 
Major themes that will be addressed include:
-  Global climate change
-  The land-sea interface
-  Ecosystem-based management
-  Poverty and globalization
 
This meeting will serve as the 2nd International Marine Protected Areas
Congress (IMPAC2) and will maintain the scope and vision of IMPAC1 (held
in Geelong, Australia in October 2005).
 
1st call for symposia, workshops, break-out sessions: 1 April - 1 June
2008 
1st call for contributed papers and posters: 1 September - 15 October
2008
 
A call for proposals will be sent out after March 1 with detailed
instructions for abstract submittal and descriptions of requirements for
Symposia, Workgroups, and contributed papers and poster.
