Call For Papers
Paper Session Topics
The three technical areas of focus for TFAWS 2012 are Passive Thermal Control and Protection, Life Support/Active Thermal, and Aerothermal. An Interdisciplinary session will also be included for those submissions that do not fit in a single category. Session chairs and contact information are listed below, followed by descriptions of each technical area of focus.
Active Thermal/Fluids/Life Support
We are open to a broad range of topics related to thermal/fluid systems, so please contact us if you are unsure which category you fall under. Note that we prefer posters not be submitted for the purpose of advertising a software or hardware product or a company’s features and capabilities. The intent is to present ongoing and accomplished work in support of a program or project.
Abstract and Paper Submission
The abstract submission deadline is May 18, 2012 and final manuscript submissions are due on July 20, 2012. You will be notified via email of the acceptance of your abstract.
Abstracts can be 200-1000 words and should include the following:
Abstracts must be submitted via email to the appropriate session chairs.
A manuscript template will be provided to authors. Full papers are encouraged but not required to give conference presentations.
Typically, 30 minutes will be allotted for each paper, five of which are devoted to questions from the audience. Longer time blocks may be requested by the author.
Submitted work must be unclassified and approved for public release by the appropriate company and/or government agencies. Please allot time for this authorization process. Government employees are expected to complete Document Availability Authorization (DAA) paperwork. The submission must be original work from the author without any portion of the material infringing on any copyright.
Presenters will be required to fill out a "Presentation Clearance & Permission to Publish" form prior to their presentation. The form may be completed prior to TFAWS or upon arrival.
