Media Registration

Complimentary media registration entitles journalists and public information officers (PIOs) from geoscience-related organizations to access all scientific sessions and the exhibition area, as well as the Newsroom and events specifically for media representatives. All speakers must pay the registration fee to speak and attend the Annual Meeting.

Eligibility for media registration is as follows, all of whom have equal access:

  • Working press representing bona fide news media with a press card, letter, or business card from the publication.
  • Freelance science writers, presenting a current membership card from NASW, ISWA, regional affiliates of NASW, ISWA, CSWA, ACS, ABSW, EUSJA, or evidence of work pertaining to science published in 2016 or 2017.
  • PIOs of scientific societies, educational institutions and government agencies.

Journalists and PIOs must pay for any short courses or field trips in which they wish to participate.

Representatives of the business side of news media, publishing houses, and for-profit corporations must register at the main registration desk and pay the appropriate fees.

Media preregistrations must be received by Monday, 16 October 2017. After that date you may register on-site with your appropriate media credentials. Preregistered members of the media should check-in and pick up their badges and programs in the main registration area.
