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 Conference or Forum, or to conferences held in conjunction with other AIAA Forums. Overlapping submissions may result in your paper being withdrawn to avoid duplicate papers being published in the conference proceedings. Also, AIAA will not republish a paper that has already been published by AIAA or another organization.
"No Paper, No Podium" and "No Podium, No Paper" Policies
If a written paper is not submitted by the final manuscript deadline, authors will not be permitted to present the paper at the forum. Also, if the paper is not presented at the forum, it will be withdrawn from the proceedings. It is the responsibility of those authors whose papers or presentations are accepted to ensure that a representative attends the conference to present the paper. These policies are intended to eliminate no-shows, improve the quality of the program for all participants, and to ensure that the published proceedings accurately reflect the presentations made at the forum.
WARNING: Technology Transfer Considerations
Prospective authors are reminded that technology transfer guidelines have considerably extended the time required for review of abstracts and completed papers by U.S. government agencies. Internal (company) plus external (government) reviews can consume 16 weeks or more. Government review if required is the responsibility of the author. Authors should determine the extent of approval necessary early in the paper preparation process to preclude paper withdrawals and late submissions. The conference technical committee will assume that all abstracts papers and presentations are appropriately cleared.
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
AIAA speakers and attendees are reminded that some topics discussed at conferences could be controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). U.S. nationals (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) are responsible for ensuring that technical data they present in open sessions to non-U.S. nationals in attendance or in conference proceedings are not export restricted by the ITAR. U.S. nationals are likewise responsible for ensuring that they do not discuss ITAR export-restricted information with non-U.S. nationals in attendance.
