Advice to the authors

  • The main purpose of the abstract is to give the Program Committee information to assist them in selecting the papers to be presented at the conference.
  • The selected papers will be presented in a 15 minute speech at the conference (+ 5 mins for Q&A).
  • An abstract will be selected based on the importance and originality of the subject addressed, on its relevance to the conference theme, on the clarity of its expression.
  • The abstract should be a “stand alone” summary that can be used in the compilation of abstracts.
  • The abstract should be in English and no longer than 400 words.
  • The abstract should summarize the main objectives of the paper to be presented and outline its conclusions.
  • Work that has been presented elsewhere, and not updated, will be considered inappropriate.
  • All abstracts should be submitted on Space Propulsion Website before the 20th September 2015.

Notification of Acceptance/Refusal

The Programme Committee will notify all authors of its decision in November 2015. This notification will be accompanied by detailed instructions allowing authors to prepare and send their paper to the AAAF Secretary by 10th April 2016.  Please note that failure to comply with the deadline will entail not having the manuscript included in the conference proceedings.
