Due to extra space becoming available a second call for abstracts has been opened for the International Marine Conservation Congress. There are already many marine mammal presentations and sessions in the meeting including modelling impacts of disturbance, whalewatching management, impacts of noise, diseases and marine mammals, marine mammal protected areas, ethics and marine mammal.

A special panel session has also been introduced on the infamous mermaid fake documentaries and how the public have reacted to them (largely by believing them) and how this undermines public confidence in science.



Second Call for Abstracts for 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress

The 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress will be held from 14-18 August 2014 at the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre, Glasgow, Scotland, UK


Have you just uncovered interesting marine study results? Has a conservation issue recently taken the foreground? Does a new marine policy need discussion?


Due to more meeting space becoming available, IMCC 2014 is opening a second Call for Abstracts for oral (spoken), speed (short spoken), and poster presentations, Late-Breaking News & Headlines, in our effort to showcase the most up-to-date marine conservation science, policy and communications. If you have news or results that broke after the Call for Abstracts closed, you may still be able to present at IMCC in August!


Did you just miss the deadline for the Call for Abstracts? You're also in luck! Due to the number of emails we've received asking for another opportunity to submit, we've opened additional times for presentations in the IMCC3 program! Your second opportunity to submit abstracts for IMCC3 starts Tuesday, 13 May.


The IMCC3 Second Call for Abstracts will run 13 May to 3 June 2014. 


After reviewing so many impressive proposals and abstracts, and receiving requests from SCB members, we've also added these important themes and topics to be featured at IMCC3:


UK marine conservation initiatives

Marine renewable energy

Impacts of marine oil spills on marine and coastal ecosystems & fisheries

Marine conservation and the media

GMOs and aquaculture
