The 12th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS 2012), the world's leading coral reef science conference held once every four years, will begin Monday, July 9, in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. Daily media briefings will be held for reporters who are in attendance, and accessibility to this information and to coral experts will be provided through an online media portal to journalists worldwide. In addition to the briefings, journalists will be given daily updates on the groundbreaking presentations in science and management of coral reefs and contact information to pursue additional stories.

The confirmed line-up of daily media briefings, which will include presentations and discussion by scientists and experts in the featured topic areas, follows. The program book and full book of abstracts are available online.

All briefings will be held at the Cairns Convention Centre, Mezzanine level (1st floor), Meeting Room 7 (Press Briefing Room).
