MEDIA ACCESS REQUIREMENTS for ISC 2022

Please review the updated registration requirements and AHA Embargo and Recording Policies to confirm if you meet the current criteria for embargoed media access.

For in-person attendees, please read the current protocols on

Health and Safety at #ISC22

Attending ISC 2022 in person or virtually and accessing embargoed media materials, including live stream embargoed news briefings, is a three-step process:

Step 1: All journalists must Register Here as a media attendee for the meeting in order to access the main event sessions in person or virtually.

  • Meeting registration includes a physical badge for in-person attendees and an “electronic badge” that will provide access to the live, main event (late-breaking science) sessions virtually. These credentials do not provide access the embargoed, password protected newsroom (PPN) or the embargoed news briefing.

Step 2: Register for access to the ISC 2022 Password-Protected Newsroom (PPN) if you are not currently credentialed and accessing an AHA/ASA PPN. The link to register for the ISC 2022 PPN will be available two weeks before the meeting. Please do not share your credentials; log-ins are monitored.

  • The PPN includes access to the embargoed press materials and resources and the live, embargoed news briefings.

Step 3: Register to attend the live stream embargoed news briefings when the link becomes available prior to the meeting.
