Abstract to Paper to Publication/Presentation

Authors Handbook: Please review and keep this valuable guide handy as you move through the Abstract/Paper/Presentation process. 

    Stage One: The Abstract for the Paper
  • As a prospective author, your chances of having an abstract accepted are signification greater if you send your abstract to the appropriate subcommittee, so please read the descriptions carefully and use the flowchart provided on the submittal website to aid in making your selection. It is also vital that you submit your abstract on time.
  • Information you will provide includes:
   - Abstract Text (300 word limit)
   - Up to five Key Words
   - Abstract Title (10 words or fewer)
   - Biography for Primary (and Secondary) Authors (200 word limit)
   - Contact information for Primary (and Secondary) Authors

Abstract Submission Site (deadline 1 March)

    Stage Two: The Paper
  • If your abstract was approved, review or download the following files to help with your Paper Submission. Your Paper will be submitted via the same portal as your Abstract, using the same login and password. Clearance Release Form will be submitted with your paper through the online portal, start early!
             Authors Handbook
             I/ITSEC Paper Template
             PDF Conversion Guide
             Author's Guide to Paper Submission 
             SAMPLE Clearance Form*
             * (Actual Clearance forms must be downloaded from Submission site while uploading Papers)
Why start so early on the Clearance Form? Here's a message from one submitter: ".... we are not permitted to submit the paper without public release being completed.  They claim (and I see their perspective) that it is available to 150 people once submitted and that collection is still “public”.  We started four weeks prior to the original submission date to get corporate and government customer approvals and those are just starting to trickle in."

   Stage Three: Paper Presentation Upload
  • If your Paper was approved, review or download the following files to help with your Presentation. Your Presentation  will be submitted via the same portal as your Abstract/Paper, using the same login and password. 
             Presentation Template 
             AV Requirements Form 
             Practice Room Sign-up (on-line will be open 5 October through 19 November*) 
             *After 19 November, reserve available space onsite in rooms 

Your Presentation must be uploaded to the I/ITSEC website by close of business on 28 September to allow time for reviewing and editing.
