With the conclusion of the first Census of Marine Life in London in October 2010, the Census Secretariat is organizing a forward-looking workshop to be held in conjunction with the World Conference on Marine Biodiversity (Scotland, September 2011). The goal of this workshop is to discuss a strategic plan for a marine biodiversity research program that would build on the first Census baseline and assets. We are pleased to announce that registration for this workshop, which we are tentatively titling the "Beyond 2010" Workshop, is now open.
The aim of the "Beyond 2010" workshop is to present and discuss this strategy, with a focus on engagement of the broader scientific community and plans and actions for implementation.
This workshop will be held in conjunction with the 2nd World Conference on Marine Biodiversity in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Dates: 30 September 2011, beginning at 1400 (exact times and end times to be determined)
1 October 2011, beginning at 0900 (exact times and end times to be determined)
Location: Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Crombie Suite A (tentative), Aberdeen, Scotland
Registration: FREE (but space is limited, and preregistration is strongly encouraged). Please see http://www.comlsecretariat.org/community-resources/beyond-2010-workshop/ to register.
