I Am a Career Science Communicator. How Can I Register?

Advance registration for the press room is now closed. You may register on site. Please review our information on the credentials you will need to bring with you.

To pick up a newsroom badge on-site, all advance registrants must present valid photo identification issued by a federal, state or local government. Each registrant must pick up his or her own credentials. Registrants without proper identification will not be admitted.

Press credentials provide access to AAAS news briefings, exhibits and the general newsroom area. No visitors or family members are permitted inside the newsroom.

Credentialed press shall not engage in lobbying, publicity or promotional efforts in the newsroom area. Violation of any of these provisions will result in revocation of credentials and removal from the building.
