For enthusiasts, conservationists, entrepreneurs and policy makers, upcoming Marine Conservation and Blue Economy Symposium (MCBES) 2016 is going to be a forum for redefining themselves and expand the network for research and collaboration in future.

We acknowledge social media as a very important medium for interaction in the cyber space and believe that such interactions foster further development of knowledge in the public sphere. In this light we very much encourage all the participants of 2nd #MCBES to use social media. However, there is a need to keep this use strategic, so the proper message is disseminated to the wider community in an efficient way, and at the same time, miscommunications and wrong messages are avoided.

This guideline provides the participants, presenters, speakers, volunteers, and all other stakeholders of 2nd #MCBES on general public use of social media i.e. online social networking sites, blogs, other sites and services that permit user to share information with others in a synchronous manner over internet.
