Media Registration

AGU Media Relations provides complimentary media registration to professional journalists and journalism students for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce media coverage of the Astrobiology Science Conference. Press officers from universities, government agencies, and research institutions are also eligible for media registration to support media outreach for research being presented at #AbSciCon22.

Media registrants receive, at no charge, access to all scientific sessions and an on-site press room. Some events and activities, including but not limited to invitation-only events and communications workshops, are not open to press registrants.

Media access to the meeting is issued at the discretion of the AGU Media Relations Office and approval may take up to five business days.

Please visit the Media Registration page to learn more about eligibility and credentialing requirements. Media access is non-transferable. All registrants must provide credentials regardless of whether they have attended past Astrobiology Science Conferences.

A Press Room will be available at the meeting for media registrants to work and conduct interviews with attending scientists. Press events will be held online on to allow remote participation. Additional information, including the location and hours of the Press Room, and any press events, will be included in a future media advisory.
