May 14, 2011 - May 17, 2011

International Marine Conservation Congress 2011 - VictoriaThe 2011 International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) represents the second stand-alone marine conservation meeting of the Society for Conservation Biology’s (SCB) Marine Section. The first IMCC in Washington DC, 2009, attracted over 1200 participants. This landmark Congress will serve to unite the marine conservation community and develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.

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 IMCC will be international and interdisciplinary and include representatives from science, management, policy, and public sectors. As with the SCB Global Meeting, the IMCC will unite conservation professionals and students from universities, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, environmental industries, private foundations, and organizations, and publications. Dialogue among these diverse sectors will be encouraged through the interactive meeting format.
