Starting in July, journalists may apply for press credentials for ACS Fall 2021, one of the largest scientific conferences of the year. The meeting is a hybrid meeting being held virtually and in-person Aug. 22-26. On-demand content will be available Aug. 30-Sept. 30. The meeting features more than 7,000 presentations on a wide range of science topics.
ACS considers requests for press credentials and complimentary registration to national meetings from reporters (staff and freelance) and public information officers at government, nonprofit and educational institutions. Marketing and public relations professionals, lobbyists and scientists do not qualify as press and must register via the main meeting registration page. Journal managing editors, book commissioning editors, acquisitions editors, publishers, and those who do not produce news for a publication or institution also do not qualify.
