IMCC and IMPAC2 Registration open!

The registration page for the International Marine Conservation Congress(IMCC), which encompasses the second International Marine Protected AreaCongress (IMPAC2), has opened.

The homepage for the conference is located at http://www2.cedarcrest.edu/imcc/index.html and registration information can be found at http://www2.cedarcrest.edu/imcc/registration.html.

MPA practitioners should note a number of IMPAC2 related events, including MPA U (a set ofshort training courses focused on MPA and MPA network operation and management), "MPAs as Muse" (a seminar that looks at the role of specialmarine places and art), and an MPA/ecosystem-based management knowledge cafe. Some of these events require prior registration and are space-limited, so MPA practitioners are encouraged to register early. More information on special events can be found on http://www2.cedarcrest.edu/imcc/program.html.

Please contact Elizabeth Moore at elizabeth.moore@noaa.gov for more information on these events or on IMPAC2.
