Publication Clearance Forms

View these pages for important information about other author deliverables.

Below you will find general information about the Publication Clearance Form, which is required for all papers and presentations.

Once Program Planning Committee decisions have been sent to authors in late February, this page will be updated with important resources for completing and submitting the Publication Clearance Form.

Policies Regarding Publication Clearance Forms:

  • Publication Clearance Forms are required for all accepted papers and presentations.
  • Forms are due at the same time as the Papers, on Friday, 6 May 2022.
  • Submit Publication Clearance Forms per the upload instructions, which will be posted under Resources on the left side of this page.
  • If your paper and presentation have the same distribution statement, submit a single Publication Clearance Form for both.
  • If your paper and presentation have different distribution statements, submit a separate form for each.
    Note:When submitting a second Publication Clearance Form, please combine both forms (one form for your presentation and one form for your paper) into one folder and compress or "zip" that folder prior to uploading. This ensures that we will receive both forms. Submitting them separately causes the second form to overwrite the first.

Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)

All printed and electronic, including digital, technical documents that are determined to contain Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) shall be marked. This includes, but is not limited to, all publications marked for Distribution Statement B, C, D, or E, or containing export-controlled technical data. For organization-specific marking guidance, please refer to your security personnel or government sponsor. For general marking guidance, please refer to

NOTE: Questions relating to CUI marking for your paper/presentation should be directed to your own security personnel. As policies vary between organizations, ERG staff are unable to provide guidance in your organization's specifications for the appropriate CUI marking for your work.
