3rd International Marine Protected Areas Congress: Countdown Has Begun

Every four years, the International Marine Protected Areas Congress (IMPAC) brings together major marine-conservation players worldwide. Its 3rd edition takes place in Marseille and Corsica, France, from Oct. 21 to Oct. 27, 2013. Its official  website is now online: Participants can register and submit their abstracts.

The website provides a platform for sharing information, expertise and opinion. It will allow all those unable to travel to Marseille to follow, participate and contribute to the event.

Among other features, a WebTV will broadcast live highlights of the sessions and workshops. Specialists, personalities, scientists, users and academics will join in from remote locations. In short, this WebTV will be made by and for the ocean-conservation community.

As of now, the website also allows participants to sign up for the congress and to submit their abstracts online.
