All pre-congress workshops will be held at the Waterfront Hotel Kuching on Friday June 22 and/or Saturday June 23, 2018. All short courses require pre-booking during IMCC5 registration process. These courses will have limited capacity so please book early.
Workshops provide opportunities for registered delegates to receive expert training on a topic relevant to marine conservation. Proposals for short courses should be as brief as possible and submitted in abstract format, including a description of what the workshop will address, the expected outcomes, and how it will be run. If the workshop is selected, then we will ask for further organizational details. Workshops are pre-congress events; post-congress events may be considered but are not preferred as they would directly compete with field trips. Workshops may last up to 2 days from the 22nd to 23rd of June 2018. All workshop organizers, tutors, and speakers must be registered for the congress as early bird registrants. There will be a fee for short courses that each participant will pay in addition to the congress registration fee. Course fees will be determined according to the cost of room rentals, catering, and equipment required. The organizers reserve the right to cancel courses up to one month before the congress is the course does not have sufficient participants registered to cover the costs. There is no economic support or compensation from IMCC5 for the organizers of training courses.
