Media Registration

Media representatives and public information officers are cordially invited to attend the 2019 International Soils Meeting, January 6-9, San Diego, CA. Those with appropriate credentials may receive complimentary media registration.

All media participants must register in advance by November 15, 2018 (information below). Your media badge can be picked up by presenting your valid photo identification to SSSA registration staff on-site. No on-site media registration is available.

Please review the program in advance to allow yourself time to decide who you might like to interview on site. Our presenters are tightly scheduled, and although they want to make time for media, they need advance notice. Contact Susan Fisk (information below) for assistance with this prior to November 15, 2018. No on-site help with scheduling interviews is available.

Videography is limited to prior permission, and audio recording is subject to the speaker's wishes. Please read the Code of Conduct under Video/Photography for more information, or contact Susan Fisk directly.

Media eligibility and registration:

The newsroom registration option is available only to those whose primary occupation is science communications. Eligible communicators include:

  • Working journalists representing the news media with a press card, letter, or business card from the outlet.
  • Freelance science writers presenting a current membership card from the National Association of Science Writers (NASW); a comparable association in another country (e.g., Canadian Science Writers' Association, International Science Writers Association); or evidence of work pertaining to science published within the last two years.
  • Public information officers (PIOs) at scientific societies, educational institutions, companies, and government agencies with a business card showing their position (e.g., communications officer, editor, writer, public affairs director, public information specialist).

I’m a researcher, professor, or scientific journal editor, but I also have a blog, website, or print publication whose purpose is to communicate science to the public. Can I register through the newsroom? No. To receive complimentary newsroom registration, you must be a career science communicator whose primary occupation is science communications. If you don’t qualify for a newsroom credential but want to attend the SSSA International Soils Meeting as a general registrant, please visit: /register.

To receive press credentials and register through the newsroom, please contact Susan Fisk, 608-273-8091, with your name, media outlet, mailing address, and phone number.
