ICPS Press Information

The International Convention of Psychological Science attracts over 2,300 participants from around the world who share the latest discoveries and developments in a variety of fields. More information about prominent speakers and noteworthy presentations can be viewed here.

Qualified press will have complimentary access to scientific and poster sessions to hear about these advancements in scientific fields that include psychological research, anthropology, linguistics, sociology, neuroscience, medicine, and more. Prior to registering, please take a moment to look over our press policies.

To register, simply send your name and the media outlet you represent to: Scott Sleek, APS Director of News, at ssleek@psychologicalscience.org.

Advance registration is open until 2 weeks before the convention begins. Registrations received after that date will be processed onsite.

The following categories are eligible for complimentary press registration:

  • Working press, including reporters, news editors, science writers, news producers, and others working for recognized print, television, radio, or online entities, should provide press credentials, such as a business card, or letter from an editor.
  • Freelance writers should provide a copy of a letter assigning you to cover ICPS; a current membership card from the International Science Writers Association or other affiliates of the World Federation of Science Journalists, or other national science journalism organizations; or recent evidence of related work (with your by-line) in a recognized publication within the last year.
  • Public information officers from nonprofit institutions including government agencies, educational and/or research institutions, and scientific societies should provide a copy or a business card or other evidence of affiliation. Eligibility applies only to those whose primary job function is public or media relations.

All members of the media who register on-site should bring the appropriate credentials to the registration area, where both advance and on-site registrants will be able to pick up their badges.
