IMPAC 3: time to register and submit proposals!!

Dear All,

We are pleased to announce the launch of, the official website of the 3rd International Marine Protected Areas Congress, which will take place in Marseille and Corsica, France, from Oct. 21 to Oct. 27, 2013.

The new website is your one stop for an overall view of the event’s concept, objectives, themes and practical organization. It complements our Facebook wall and Twitter feed, so you can still keep posted at and offers a foretaste of things to come, a panorama of congress-related news, and a wealth of information to help you organize your contribution to and participation in the congress. Two services deserve special mention :

- Online registration is now open at

- If your abstract is ready, we’re ready to read it ! Submit it at

Further down the road, the website aims to relay congress proceedings to all those unable to travel to Southern France. It will notably feature a WebTV with live broadcasts from sessions and workshops in Marseille, and from ocean-conservation specialists around the globe.

Contents are still being added, so we are interested in your feedback. And if you feel you have useful material to contribute, especially in terms of photos and videos, do get in touch.

Looking forward to your visit,

The IMPAC3 Team
