• Final day to submit our signed Copyright Release Form.

November 1, 2019
• Final day to submit your presentations in PowerPoint format.

• Final day to submit your poster in PDF format. You will need to bring a hard copy for display with you to the symposium.

Important Information:

We do have, though, a few things that we would like you to be aware of as you are preparing your material. We absolutely need all of these materials in order for you to be able to present. All submissions should be sent to registrar@tviw.us.

  • If you have not already, please email a 250-word summary biography and a high-resolution photograph of yourself for use on our website and symposium promotion materials. This should be mailed to registrar@tviw.us
  • Papers: For the Interstellar Symposium, we are requiring all presenters to submit a paper formatted as explained in the TVIW paper template. If we do not receive your paper by the deadline above, your presentation will be canceled. Papers will be published in the official proceedings of the TVIW 2019 meeting. The paper formatting template can be found here. (Presenters at the NASA Interstellar Propulsion Workshop should contact their session chair for instructions regarding the submission of formal papers; presenters at the Interstellar Propulsion Workshop are strongly encouraged, but not required, to submit their papers prior to the symposium.)
  • Presentations: The template you should use in preparing your presentations can be found here. We appreciate the creative professionalism of our presenters, but would like to maintain a single standard through this whole symposium for the plenary talks. The template should be used by presenters at both the Interstellar Symposium and the NASA Advanced Propulsion Workshop.
  • Posters: If you are presenting a poster rather than a plenary talk, the template you should use in preparing your poster can be found here. Printed posters should be 3 feet x 4 feet and capable of being pinned to a free standing mounting surface.
  • All Presenters are required to complete and return the (signed) Copyright Release form found here.
  • All Presenters are required to complete and return the (signed) Media Release form found here.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at registrar@tviw.us.
