Presenters' Information

Technical Paper Submission | Regional Design Team Submission

Technical Paper Submission

PLEASE NOTE: Starting with the 2010 conference there is a new process for submitting papers. If you have questions or problems, make sure you email the judging coordinator right away so that we can help you take care of it.


All steps will be completed on the regional student conference website.


Submission Process:
  1. Register for the conference.
  2. Create/join your Technical Paper on the "My Registration" page.
  3. When you create your Technical Paper the form will include a text field for you to type your abstract in.  Your abstract should be a BRIEF description of your manuscript.
  4. The conference organizers will then have the opportunity to approve, deny, or ask for an updated abstract.
  5. You will be notified via the email you listed on your registration form the status of your abstract and if you need to make any updates.
  6. Once your abstract is approved, you will then be allowed to upload your manuscript (pdf only).
  7. The conference organziers will then have the oppportunity to approve, deny, or ask for an updated manuscript.
  8. Again, you will be notified via the email listed on your registration form the status of your manuscript.



Please refer to the Key Dates page for the specific deadlines with submitting a manuscript.



There is an author kit available that reiterates the formatting of your paper. Please make sure you follow the formatting guidelines or you may be subject to disqualification. NOTE: Don't fill out the copyright forms in that document.

For formatting samples, the conference committee suggests you search for some professional papers at You should be able to view the first page of these without purchasing them and they will give you a better idea of the formatting style.



For paper presenters, a signed copy of the paper authorization document must be scanned and sent via email to the Judging Coordinator. This cover page should be signed by two faculty members (one being the AIAA faculty advisor) who have reviewed your paper.  Please refer to the Key Dates page for when this should be completed.



The conference committee can not stress this enough. Please try to get started as soon as possible on this. The deadlines are not flexible.

Regional Design Team Submission
(Back to Top)

The design teams need to follow the same steps as those listed above for the Technical Paper Submission except that you will not be required to type an abstract.  You will only need to upload your Letter of Intent. You can find a description of the Letter of Intent contents on the Regional Design Team Rules page. The Letter of Intent is the only document that the design team should be submitting.
