The theme of IMC12 is "Advances in mammalogy in a changing world", encouraging discussion of emerging themes, future challenges and novel solutions in mammal biology, conservation and management.
IMC12 will identify and discuss leading research and scholarship in mammalogy, together with the challenges of mammal conservation and management. Prominent international speakers will provide fresh perspectives on current topics relevant to mammal research and management. The Congress will encourage active participation, including focused workshops, and will identify pathways for long-term mammal research and conservation.
The IMC will bring together practitioners involved in the research, biology, conservation, husbandry and management of mammals throughout the world. The IMC is relevant to government and non-government scientists, policy makers, environmental scientists in the mining sector, environmental consultants, marine scientists, and students and technicians with an interest in mammal biology, conservation and management.
IMC12 will be hosted in Perth, a city of 2 million people on the Mediterranean west coast of Australia. The congress will be held at the centrally located Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (21 Mounts Bay Road, Perth WA 6000).
The venue will encourage discussions on leading international research within a unique social environment. IMC12 will also provide a wonderful opportunity for delegates to encounter the amazing biodiversity of Western Australia, including field experiences to see some of the unique mammals found in this part of the globe.
The IMC12 Organising Committee looks forward to welcoming delegates from throughout the world to this unique venue ‘down under’. The Congress will be held from Sunday 9th to Friday 14th July 2017.
