May 26-29, 1998
PLEASE SAVE THIS ADVISORY!
We have lined up a series of press events for Spring Meeting, to which all registered media representatives are invited. Those who have not preregistered may do so in the Press Room of the Hynes Convention Center.
The Press Room for Spring Meeting is Room 105.
Phone: (617) 954-3867
Fax: (617) 954-3868
The Press Room is the place to register as a media representative or pick up your credential if you have preregistered. The room has space for you to write and file stories and is where you can leave and pick up messages. Hours of operation: Tuesday-Friday, 9-5 (later if necessary).
Press events will take place in the Briefing Room, Room 111, unless otherwise noted below. The Briefing Room has a camera platform and a mult box, but no special lighting.
The format for press conferences at Spring Meeting will be the following: a scientist will make an opening presentation of 10-15 minutes, followed by journalists' questions. A panel will be available to answer questions in members' respective fields of expertise, but generally panelists will not make opening remarks. We hope this will speed the process and keep the focus on what you want to know about the subject at hand.
Please check in the Press Room frequently for updates or changes to this schedule and any changes pertaining to the meeting itself.
