Press registration open for 'World Series of Science'

WASHINGTON, Feb. 23, 2012 Journalists may now register and reserve housing for a scientific conference that news media accounts have termed the "World Series of Science." One of the largest scientific conferences of the year, it is the American Chemical Society (ACS) 243rd National Meeting & Exposition. More than 14,000 scientists and others are expected for the event. It will be held March 25-29, 2012, in San Diego, Calif., at the San Diego Convention Center and area hotels.

With an agenda that includes more than 11,700 presentations on new discoveries that span science's horizons from astronomy to zoology ― the meeting will offer print, broadcast and online journalists a rich assortment of spot news and feature possibilities. The topics include food and nutrition, medicine, health, energy, the environment and other fields where chemistry plays a central role. Some of those presentations will connect with the meeting's theme, "Chemistry of Life."

The ACS Office of Public Affairs will operate a press center in the convention center. It will include a press conference room and a news media workroom fully staffed to assist in arranging interviews. The press center will have wireless Internet access, telephones, computers, photocopy and fax services, and refreshments.

Embargoed copies of press releases, a press conference schedule, and other materials will be available in March. Reporters planning to cover the meeting from their home bases will have access to the press conferences over the Internet in ACS' popular "Live Chat" format.
