Every four years the International Society for Reef Studies (ISRS) sanctions a major international scientific conference which provides the latest knowledge and leading edge technologies about coral reefs worldwide.

ICRS 2012 is important because it provides the international science community with a platform to:

- Increase global knowledge and interest in coral reefs, including sustainable use and conservation strategies

- Showcase successful science, conservation and management efforts

- Develop collaborations and partnerships to increase international capacity to address coral reef issues

- Increase global awareness of reef degradation and possible solutions by extensive promotion in the media.
