Sixth International Marine Debris Conference

The Sixth International Marine Debris Conference (6IMDC) will bring together international marine debris researchers, natural resource managers, policy makers, industry representatives, and the nongovernmental community. The impetus for this international marine debris conference is the pressing need to address and reduce the impacts of marine debris to vital natural resources, human health and safety, and the economy.

Objectives of this international conference include sharing lessons learned and best practices to reduce and prevent marine debris and its impacts; promoting international co-learning; exchanging innovative ideas such as market incentives and communication strategies; and sharing the latest research initiatives, methods, and results. This conference is structured to be action, solution, and change-oriented.

The deadline for the abstract submission is Wednesday, October 11, 2017.
