Coronavirus & IMCC6

In light of the challenges the global community faces from the covid-19 pandemic, we have sadly decided to cancel the in-person meeting planned to be held in Kiel in August.

However, we are considering trialling an online format for IMCC6 this year. We see this as an opportunity to test technologies and formats that may improve the accessibility and inclusion for the marine conservation community and to also reduce our carbon emissions and environmental impact.

We need your support to make this trial a success! We are currently exploring our options to determine exactly how, when and whether it’s possible for us to hold an online event. If you have submitted an abstract or proposal, we are interested to hear whether you might be interested and willing to participate in an online version of IMCC6 to assist with our planning. If you submitted an abstract or were organising a symposia it would be extremely helpful if you could please complete the very brief survey here (four questions!) to indicate your interest. We’re aiming to keep the conference as low cost and as flexible as possible to maximise accessibility for all interested.

If you have already registered for IMCC6 we will contact you shortly to arrange a full reimbursement.

We will keep you updated on our plan and progress in taking IMCC6 online and thank you for your continued interest and support for marine conservation.

Best wishes
