Press Registration

APS uses a one-time credentialing process to verify eligibility for press registration.

If you have previously attended an APS meeting as press, complete your registration online. After logging into your aps.org account you should see the full registration option with no associated fee.

If you have not previously attended an APS meeting as press, you may request APS press credentials.

Once your application for press credentials is approved, use the “forgot password” link to set your password and complete the registration process.

Contact media@aps.org with any questions about press registration.
