AIAA will not consider for presentation or publication any paper that has been or will be presented or published elsewhere. Authors will be required to sign a statement to this effect.
AIAA policy precludes an abstract or paper from being submitted multiple times to the same forum. Also, AIAA will not republish a paper that has already been published by AIAA or another organization.
Timing of Presentations
Each paper presentation will be allotted 30 minutes, including introduction and question-and-answer period, except where noted in the program.
WARNING—Technology Transfer Considerations
Prospective authors are reminded that technology transfer guidelines have considerably extended the time required for review of abstracts and presentations by U.S. government agencies. Internal (company) plus external (government) reviews can consume 16 weeks or more. Government and sponsor review if required is the responsibility of the author. Authors should determine the extent of approval necessary early in the preparation process to preclude withdrawals and late submissions. The conference technical committee will assume that all abstracts, papers, and presentations are appropriately cleared.
The AIAA DEFENSE Forum requires all attendees to have a final U.S. SECRET or higher clearance to attend.
AIAA is committed to providing engagement opportunities and access to products and services in a manner that is free from discrimination based on any personal factor unrelated to qualifications or performance. Such personal factors include, without limitation, race or color, citizenship, national origin or ethnicity, ancestry, religion or creed, political affiliation or belief, age, sex or sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, physical or mental disability, or any other characteristic protected by law.
