Limited Distribution Paper Submission Instructions

Limited distribution papers will follow instructions associated with the Journal of DoD Research and  Engineering  (JDR&E). There will be a controlled, unclassified presentation track for U.S. researchers who would like to participate in ICPS6 but need to present in a restricted forum. The distribution for these sessions will be DISTRIBUTION D; however, distribution will include the one-time release at the 6th International Conference on Protective Structures to DHS, DoS, and their contractors. Additional U.S. government agencies will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Limited distribution sessions will be managed by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center. Conference papers for the limited distribution sessions will be managed by DTIC and submitted to the Journal of DoD Research and Engineering (JDR&E). Select papers will be invited for publication in the Journal of DoD Research and Engineering (JDR&E). For consideration by JDR&E, at least one author must be a government civilian or military.
