John Wiley and Sons, the publisher of the journal Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems, will be offering a prize for the best presentation about coralline algal science at ICAM2023. The prize is a 1-year subscription to the journal Aquatic Conservation, a book value up to 150 EUROs (or its equivalent) in a relevant field published by John Wiley and Sons, and a signed bookplate commemorating the prize that can be inserted into the book. And, of course, publicity and peer-recognition of the importance of your work to conservation of aquatic biological resources!
The presentation could be either a poster or a talk. As well as the usual requirements for message clarity, robust logic and engaging style, the key criterion for the proposed prize focuses on the presentation’s contribution to coralline algal science and how well the presentation places the content in a wider context and its links to potential conservation applications (and how to realise this).
It is also hoped that the winner would consider submitting their presentation as a manuscript for publication in Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems, Coralline Algae Special Issue to further showcase their contribution. The winner will be presented with their award at the final conference session.
