The Call for abstracts for the 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress is now open.

The
 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress will be held from 14-18 
August 2014 at the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre, Glasgow,
 Scotland, UK. We are now accepting abstracts for oral (spoken), speed 
(short spoken), and poster presentations.

All
 abstracts must be submitted online by 5pm (GMT) on 8 March 2014. 
Decisions will be made by 22 March 2014. Complete instructions for
 submitting proposals are available at the meeting website: 
www.conbio.org/mini-sites/imcc-2014. The selection process is highly 
competitive. 

The overall theme of the
 congress is Making Marine Science Matter. For marine conservation to be
 effective, marine conservation science must matter to stakeholders, 
policy makers, and practitioners. To accomplish this, the congress will 
be organized around specific topics of interest for marine conservation 
in general, as well as for the local area. This list is not meant to be 
exhaustive, but merely a guide for proposers.  Other topics of interest 
are welcomed.
    • Food security and the oceans (e.g., sustainable fisheries, aquaculture, and livelihoods)
    • Marine renewable and non-renewable energy
    • Climate, ocean acidification, and the changing oceans
    • Advancing marine conservation through international
 agreements
    • Effective conservation planning (including EBM and MPAs, cumulative impacts)
    • Communicating marine conservation (marine conservation awareness and outreach, social media)
    • Participation in marine conservation science (e.g. citizen and indigenous science)
    • Marine tourism
    • Estuary restoration

In
 addition, the SCB Marine Section developed a list of 71 research 
questions critical to the advancement of marine conservation (http://www.conbio.org/mini-sites/imcc-2014/registration-participation/71-questions).  We encourage proposals that address one or more of these questions but 
welcome all abstracts related to marine conservation science and 
practice.

For additional information contact the
 program committee at IMCCprogram at conbio.org.

Apologies for cross-posting.
