The ICCB : 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology will take place from 2 to 6 August, 2015 in Montpellier – France.
SCB’s International and European Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB & ECCB) are the most important international meeting for conservation professionals and students. They are a forum for addressing conservation challenges and for presenting new research and developments in conservation science and practice. Most importantly, ICCBs and ECCBs connect our global community of conservation professionals and are the major networking outlet for anyone interested in conservation.
The meeting theme is ‘Mission biodiversity: choosing new paths for conservation’, and as such we intend that ICCB-ECCB 2015 is a transdisciplinary meeting and delegates attend from a range of professions and sectors. Conservation biology has always had socioeconomic relevance but it is clear that biologists need to undertake interdisciplinary collaborations from the first inception of projects, through to implementation and dissemination of outputs.
The programme will emphasise science-policy and science-society dialogues using interactive sessions and symposia. GEO BON plans a 3-hour symposium “Essential Biodiversity Variables for conservation needs” at the ICCB-ECCB conference in Montpellier. This symposium will be about EBV developments, EBV’s for CBD and national needs and EBV dataflows.
