Submissions may be made at the AIAA SciTech 2018 website, located here: www.aiaa-scitech.org. Once you have authenticated to Scholar One, choose ‘Software’ as the topic, and ‘Software Challenges in Aerospace Symposium’ as the subtopic.
Papers will initially be accepted based on a draft manuscript, due no later than June 12th, 2017.
Please submit full draft papers or 5 page extended abstracts by the June submission deadline using the “Submit a Paper” link at http://www.aiaa-scitech.org.
We invite three kinds of papers, full-length technical papers (6-10 pages) and short ideas papers and practical experience reports (4-5 pages) in the AIAA conference format. (The author’s kit can be found at https://www.aiaa.org/Secondary.aspx?id=4597). To encourage thorough and appropriate citation, the references section will not count against the page limits. In both cases, the program committee will assess the papers for originality, importance of the contributions, the quality and clarity of the writing, and the consideration of the current state of practice. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the committee.
Technical papers should describe original and unpublished concepts and results at the intersection of aerospace and computing. These papers should have solid and complete evaluations and contribute to knowledge at the frontier.
Idea papers will allow the authors to present and get feedback on novel ideas and on promising work that has not yet been fully evaluated. These papers should focus on inspiring new directions, and/or provocative ideas.
Practical experience reports are papers by authors who have attempted to implement software in realistic aerospace contexts. These papers should discuss implementation details and results, and hopefully contain recommendations for future implementation.
All abstracts will be subject to peer-review, and reviewer comments will be returned to the authors. The Software TC is interested in high-quality papers and is therefore emphasizing this extra review step. Additionally, the Software TC is continuously improving its review process.
Accepted full-length technical papers will be presented at the conference as 20-25 minute talks during the AIAA SciTech meeting in a special track during January 2017. Depending on the number and quality of submissions, accepted short idea papers may be presented as full talks or as part of a panel discussion.
Proposals for special sessions or panel discussions on other important and emerging topics of interest are also welcome.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to propose panel discussions.
