Abstract:
What: The 31st Annual International Space Development Conference (ISDC)is sponsored by the National Space Society. The theme of this year's conference, Onward Upward, relates to NSS's vision of "people living and working in thriving communities beyond the Earth, and the use of the vast
resources of space for the dramatic betterment of humanity". It also reflects the need to strive for renewed emphasis on U.S. space exploration and development in the post-Shuttle era and within
NASA's current budgetary challenges.

How: Media credentials are given to members of the working media whose attendance at ISDC 2012 may result in coverage, whether broadcast or print. A press room and media coordinator will be available. Requests for credentialing may be submitted using the Media Registration Form at http://isdc.nss.org/2012 or by sending an email to .

All conference sessions are open to the media unless otherwise indicated, as long as the proceedings are not disturbed. Media access to certain track programming is subject to review by the appropriate track leaders. The National Space Society will not be responsible should requirements change.

Per Museum policy, there will be NO media access to the 25th Anniversary Governors Dinner & Gala being held at the National Air and Space Museum on May 25th.

Interviews may be conducted prior to or after sessions at the discretion of the speakers, panelists or their staff. If at all possible, and to minimize last-minute confusion, all requests for interviews should be received and scheduled prior to the commencement of ISDC. Please email or call Debbie Cohen at 202.429.1600 with requests for access/scheduling.

Advance media registration is strongly encouraged to enable appropriate review of each request by NSS staff and for registrants to provide supporting documentation for their request, if required for credentialing. Media registering on-site must bring documentation/ qualifying materials to receive credentials. Non-registered media/press may experience a delay in admission to events if personnel are not immediately available to review documentation.

For detailed information on media registration, supporting documentation, access or other questions, please call Debbie Cohen at 202.429.1600 or email .
