The overall theme of IMCCs 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 the local area. This list is not meant to be exhaustive but merely a guide for the conference. All marine conservation-related proposals and abstracts are welcome.

Fisheries, aquaculture and the oceans
Marine food security
Conservation and management of the Arctic and Antarctic
Conservation engineering
Ocean science technology
Marine energy
Climate, ocean acidification, and the changing oceans
Culture and the marine environment
Advancing marine conservation through international treaties
Effective marine conservation planning
Communicating marine conservation
Participation in marine conservation science (e.g. citizen and indigenous science)
Marine tourism
Marine policy
Estuary and coastal restoration
Conservation at the land-sea interface


In addition, the SCB Marine Section developed a list of 71 research questions critical to the advancement of marine conservation (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/cobi.12303/pdf). These research questions will also be addressed throughout the conference.


Keywords: marine conservation, fisheries, aquaculture, marine food security, marine management, Arctic, Antarctic, conservation engineering, ocean technology, climate change, ocean acidification, science communication, marine tourism, marine policy, estuaries, coasts, coastal restoration
