Welcome to the Press Center

Free registration is available to full-time members of the media for the purpose of gathering news and information to produce media coverage of the Astrobiology Science Conference (AbSciCon24). Press officers supporting researchers presenting at the conference and journalism students are also eligible for press registration.

Press registration will remain open through the end of the conference on Friday, 10 May. Review AGU’s press credentialing requirements for more information on press eligibility.

Reporters and press officers interested in press registration should email [email protected]. Please include a link to your institution’s staff page, byline or masthead listing your name and position. Freelancers should provide a link to a portfolio or links to at least three bylined science news stories published in the last 12 months.
