V. Media Registration
Policies and Procedures
Registration entitles journalists and public information officers (PIOs) from geoscience and other related organizations to access to all scientific sessions and the exhibition area, as well as to the Newsroom and events specifically for media representatives.
Eligibility for media registration is as follows, all of whom have equal access:
- Working press representing bona fide news media with a press card, letter, or business card from the publication.
- Freelance science writers, presenting a current membership card from NASW, ISWA, regional affiliates of NASW, or evidence of work pertaining to science published in 1999 or 2000.
- PIOs of scientific societies, educational institutions and government agencies.
Representatives of the business side of news media, publishing houses, and for-profit corporations must register at the main registration desk and pay the appropriate fees.
Eligible persons are encouraged to pre-register
(downloadable paper form in PDF format). The deadline for media pre-registration
is Oct. 31. On-site registration will take place at the Newsroom.
Pre-registrants will receive the full book of abstracts via first class mail,
while supplies last. For delivery via means other than the U.S. Postal Service,
send the preferred carrier name and an account number to Ann
Cairns. Those who register on-site will receive the abstract book upon arrival.
All media registrants will receive the Program book upon arrival at the Newsroom.
Information on hotel accommodations
is available in the Summit 2000 web site. All media are encouraged to make their
arrangements as soon as possible.
