Restricted Access Technical Program

The restricted-access technical program provides a venue for research related to U.S. Government programs that is not suited for full public or international release. . Attendees of the restricted access program must be U.S. citizens and have an active U.S. security clearance that can be verified via the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS). Restricted-access technical panel proposals will also be accepted.

Papers submitted to the restricted-access program must be approved to have Distribution Statement C (release to U.S. Government and contractors) or Distribution Statement A (full public release). Authors will be asked to verify that they have obtained this approval. The attendance restrictions make this portion of the program appropriate for material that is For Official Use Only (FOUO) or export controlled.

Before submitting a paper or panel proposal, please email for full submission instructions.

All submissions should be written in English with draft papers up to six (6) printed pages in length, two-column, single-spaced with 10-point font on U.S. letter-size paper. While no draft papers longer than six pages may be submitted without special request, accepted final papers can exceed six (6) pages, but will be assessed a per-page over-length charge of $150/page, up to a maximum of eight (8) total pages.
