All abstracts submitted to AIAA forums must meet the following minimum requirements in order to be considered for acceptance to the event:
- The abstract must be an extended abstract or draft manuscript with a minimum of 1,000 words.
- The submission must include sufficient detail to demonstrate the purpose of the paper, the technical foundation for the topics to be discussed, any preliminary results to date, and the expected results of the final paper, including key figures, equations, tables, and references, as appropriate. Sufficient information must be included in the submission to convince the forum organizers and reviewers that the author(s) will have a strong likelihood of completing the final manuscript by the final manuscript submission deadline.
- There is no required format, but many authors use the final manuscript template available on the Author Resources Page.
Please note: Some conferences within the AIAA forums require the submission of a full draft manuscript, as indicated on the forum website and the abstract submission site. Exceptions to the abstract submission requirements may be considered by the Forum Technical Chair(s).
