The preferred format for Draft Papers is a single-column, double-spaced format. Please include your Paper Tracking Number on your Draft Paper.

Send classified papers as hardcopy to the address provided below.  If a paper is unclassified, it may be submitted electronically via the WAMS website. Unclassified papers can also be submitted as hardcopy.

Final Papers (Final Papers due 30 Jun 03)

Authors who have been notified that their paper is accepted should follow the format for final papers specified in the Classified Program Authorís Kit, which should be available by February 28 (please check back):

Author's Kit for the Classified Program

For classified papers, a final camera-ready hardcopy of the paper must be submitted to the Classified Material address below. Unclassified papers in the Classified Program may be submitted electronically via the web site, using WAMS. Electronic versions must conform to the requirements for electronic files.

Examples are available in the Author's Kit to assist you in meeting these formatting requirements. The Author's Kit for the Classified Program contains several forms that are required at the time of Final Paper submittal. These forms must be mailed with the final paper submittal. Papers for which any required form is missing will be excluded from the final program.


Presenters are encouraged to include only unclassified material in their printed presentation materials for the Classified Program. If required, the accompanying discussion can be classified. If the presentation is unclassified, the presenter should bring an electronic version (either PowerPoint or Adobe Acrobat.pdf) to the conference. A Windows 2000 machine will be available to upload files from disk, zip disk, or CD. An overhead projector will also be available and presenters are encouraged to bring a back-up copy of their presentation on transparencies. If the presentation contains classified material, electronic versions of the presentation will not be accommodated.
