Media Arrangements for the 62nd IAEA General Conference


The 62nd Annual Regular Session of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) General Conference is set for 17 - 21 September 2018 at the Vienna International Centre (VIC) in Vienna, Austria. High-ranking officials and representatives from IAEA Member States will consider and make decisions on a range of issues pertaining to the work and the budget of the Agency.

This year’s Scientific Forum, to be held on the side lines of the General Conference on 18 and 19 September, is entitled Nuclear Technology for Climate: Mitigation, Monitoring and Adaptation.

All plenary sessions of the General Conference and the Scientific Forum will be open to the media and streamed live on the IAEA website.

Details of the General Conference and the Scientific Forum, including the provisional agenda, are available on the IAEA website.

Most of the main conference events will take place in the M-Building of the VIC, except for the Scientific Forum, which will take place in Boardroom D of the C-Building.

At the entrance to the M-Building, visiting journalists will find a press counter which will be staffed throughout the week. A media briefing and working area equipped with internet access is also available.
