236th meeting of the American Astronomical Society
Virtually Anywhere
1 – 3 June 2020

The AAS offers complimentary meeting registration to bona fide working journalists and public-information officers (PIOs). To request press registration, first check our eligibility criteria, then contact AAS Press Officer Dr. Rick Fienberg to obtain the URL of the press-registration form and a valid registration code. Press-registration deadline: Friday, 29 May 2020.

Note: Press registration will still be possible after 29 May, but we likely won’t be able to respond to requests promptly, leaving you without login credentials and unable to join the conference until our staff can process your registration request.
