Fall Meeting 2020: Media Center

Welcome to the Media Center

Fall Meeting 2020 will be held online everywhere 1-17 December, with most of the scientific programming concentrated from 7-11 December.

In addition to more than 1,000 scientific sessions, AGU plans to offer a series of virtual press conferences about newsworthy scientific advances and informal media roundtables to help journalists report on new findings presented at the meeting.

  • Press conferences are expected to take place 7-11 December.
  • Media roundtables are expected to take place 14-17 December.

The final schedule of press events will be announced about a week before the meeting’s scientific sessions begin. Dates and times are subject to change.

AGU will also have additional resources to help you cover the meeting. This information will be available on the Fall Meeting Media Center in the coming weeks leading up to the meeting.

Press registrants receive, at no charge, a badge that provides access to all scientific sessions and press events. Find out how to attend as a member of the media by reviewing our press registration eligibility requirements. See the Who’s Coming list for an up-to-date list of approved press.
