APS provides complimentary press registration to professional journalists representing media organizations, freelance journalists, public information officers, institutional communicators, and other eligible journalists and communicators for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce media coverage of APS meetings.
Press credentials will not be granted to representatives of for-profit corporations, special-interest or political-advocacy groups. Similarly, scientists, scientific journal editors, advertising, or marketing professionals must register as general attendees and pay the fee. General attendee registration is available online.
Press registrants receive, at no charge, a badge that provides access to all scientific sessions and press services. Press credentials are approved at the discretion of APS.
Preregistration is recommended to expedite the check-in process but is not required. To sign up and register on-site, proceed directly to the Press Room, do not go to the main registration desk. Preregistered press attendees can check-in and collect their materials at the main registration desk or in the Press Room.
To apply for press credentials, submit the form below. When approved, meeting registration instructions will be sent. Please allow 1-3 business days for approval.
