WASHINGTON — Press registration is now open for the AGU annual meeting 2023 (#AGU23) in San Francisco, California, and online 11 to 15 December 2023 at the Moscone Conference Center. More than 25,000 attendees will present the latest research in a broad range of Earth and space sciences, and we look forward to welcoming back members of the press for the in-person excitement!


Staff, freelance, and student journalists are eligible to apply for complimentary press registration through the end of the conference. Press officers and institutional writers covering the meeting are also eligible. Additional information for press can be found in the conference Press Center. Learn about our eligibility requirements. Media access to the meeting is issued at the discretion of the AGU Media Relations Office. Please email us at [email protected] if you have a question about eligibility, what group you should register under, or other conference questions.

A press event schedule will be available later in the fall. Press conferences and Q&A roundtables will be hybrid events. All scientific talks and plenary lectures will be livestreamed. Poster presentations during the meeting will be in person only, with online poster presentations running in late January 2024. Read more about presentation formats.

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