237th meeting of the American Astronomical Society

10 – 15 January 2021

The AAS offers complimentary meeting registration to bona fide working journalists and public information officers (PIOs), as described in our latest media advisory. To request press registration, first check our eligibility criteria, then contact AAS Press Officer Dr. Rick Fienberg to obtain a valid promotional code. Press registration deadline: Wednesday, 6 January 2021.

Note: Press registration will still be possible after 6 January, 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.
