Policies

Publication Policies

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.

Classified SECRET/NoFORN

The AIAA DEFENSE Forum requires all attendees to have a final U.S. SECRET or higher clearance to attend.

General Policies

Nondiscriminatory Practices

AIAA accepts registrations irrespective of race, creed, gender, color, sexual orientation, physical handicap, and national or ethnic origin.

Restrictions

Photography or the video or audio recording of sessions or exhibits, as well as the unauthorized sale of AIAA-copyrighted material, is prohibited.
