WASHINGTON — Press registration is now open for Fall Meeting 2022, the largest worldwide conference in the Earth and space sciences. #AGU22 brings together more than 20,000 researchers, educators, and policy analysts to share new scientific findings and innovative solutions to the challenges of global change.
The 2022 meeting will convene at the McCormick Place Convention Center Chicago and online everywhere, 12-16 December 2022.
Staff journalists, freelance journalists, student journalists and press officers can register for free as press attendees, now through the end of Fall Meeting. Visit the Fall Meeting Press Center to find the press registration portal and eligibility guidelines.
*Note: you must enter the press registration portal, linked in the online Press Center, to register for free as a member of the media! Press registration cannot be accessed through the general registration buttons in the top menu and landing page of the meeting site.
Journalists attending #AGU22 can learn about the new research findings from the bottom of our oceans to the top of our atmosphere and beyond. Look for the latest on climate change, new space missions, extreme weather events, and community science. The full scientific program, including more than 20,000 proposed sessions across the Earth and space sciences, will be available in early October.
Talks, keynotes, plenaries, lectures, union sessions and innovation sessions will be livestreamed, allowing live participation in Q&A in-person and online. Recordings will be posted about 72 hours after the scheduled session and remain available through February 2023. Poster sessions will be held either in-person or online. Some in-person posters may not be available remotely.
Visit the Fall Meeting Press Center and click on the “Register” button within the giant orange “Press Registration” square to start your registration. Press registrants will be prompted to login to their existing AGU account, or create a new AGU account, before registering. If you are directed to your profile page after resetting your password or creating an account, please return to this press registration link to continue your registration.
AGU provides complimentary press registration to members of the media for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce media coverage of AGU meetings. Please check our eligibility guidelines to learn more about who qualifies for press registration.
Press registrants receive, at no charge, access to all scientific sessions and press events. Some events and activities, including but not limited to invitation-only events and communications workshops, are not open to press badge holders.
Registrations are approved at the discretion of the AGU Media Relations office and approval may take up to five business days.
