Abstracts Due Date
Abstracts may be submitted after the due date, but they must be reviewed and accepted in order to submit a paper. You should submit your abstract as early as possible since you must plan for ITAR and Internal releases for publication. If your release has not been processed by your Company, we cannot accept a paper after the Paper Submission Deadline.
Paper Submission Deadline
This date is a hard deadline since we schedule a Paper Review Day involving hundreds of people and must print papers in preparation. There are no exceptions. This is mechanical, not arbitrary. If you miss this deadline, you do not have a paper in the Conference.
Final Paper and Copyright Deadline
Final Papers responsive to review comments. If you miss this deadline, you do not have a paper in this years conference. Signed copyrights are also due at this time.
