2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting

Welcome to Press Registration

Here, members of the media can pre-register for complimentary press access to the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting, book hotel rooms and purchase tickets for Ocean Sciences Meeting ticketed events.

AGU encourages you to pre-register on this site to expedite the badge pick-up process onsite at the meeting. YOUR PRESS REGISTRATION IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL YOU GET TO THE SUBMITTED PAGE. Once your registration is approved, you may log back into the registration system to purchase tickets for events.


The AGU Press Office provides complimentary press registration to members of the media for the express purpose of gathering news and information to produce or facilitate media coverage of AGU meetings. Professional journalists representing media organizations, freelance journalists, photo and video journalists, bloggers, podcasters, authors, filmmakers, public information officers, institutional communicators, journalism educators and student journalists who present appropriate credentials will be considered for complimentary press registration.

Press registrants receive a badge that provides access to all scientific sessions, the press room and the press conference room. Some events and activities, including but not limited to invitation-only events and communications workshops, are not open to press badge holders.

Editors of scientific journals, educators, researchers in science communication, professionals in government affairs, public policy, marketing and project management, and representatives of publishing houses, the business side of news media, political action committees or similar, and for-profit corporations, will not be accredited as press and must register as regular attendees.

Additional information

Anyone who presents at the meeting is expected to register for the meeting as a participant and pay the registration fee for the day, or days, of their presentation. Working press registrants who are also presenting at the meeting may qualify for a waiver. Press registrants should contact the AGU Press Office before registering as a meeting participant. Scientists presenting at the meeting and also reporting from the meeting for a recognized media outlet may be issued press credentials at the discretion of the AGU Press Office.

All press room badges are issued at the discretion of the AGU Press Office. All registrants must provide credentials regardless of whether they have received press registration for past AGU meetings. Press room badges are non-transferable.

NOTE: Audio and video recording are not allowed in scientific sessions or in poster halls. Photography is allowed throughout the meeting. Please see AGU's social media and photography policy for more information.
