The Digital and Multimedia Sciences (DMS) Section is excited about the AAFS Annual Scientific Conference in Denver, CO, taking place February 19–24, 2024, and now is the time we are looking for prospective presenters! The theme of this year's meeting is "Justice for All." Our section is interested in embracing this theme by highlighting some presentations that emphasize how digital and multimedia evidence can be used in legal proceedings to bring justice to all. We will be working with the Jurisprudence Section to develop a joint session on this topic.

We look forward to receiving interesting workshops and oral and poster presentation submissions. For further guidance on submissions, please see: https://accounts.aafs.org/Meetings/Abstract-Submission-Instructions.aspx.

When submitting abstracts, be sure to self-identify for any awards (especially students!). Please be aware that the deadline for scientific submissions (abstracts and workshop proposals) is August 1 and this is a hard deadline. Feel free to contact the DMS Program Chair, Josh Brunty (josh.brunty@marshall.edu), or Co-Chair, Christina Malone (camalone@gmail.com), if you have any questions about workshops or scientific session submissions.

If you are considering a workshop proposal (full-day workshops preferred), please note the following requirements for submission in addition to an abstract:
• CV for all speakers
• Contact information for all speakers
• Full- or Half-Day designation
• Workshop schedule with time designations per speaker
• Speaker disclosures
• Expected audience size
• Estimated number of pages for handouts

Additionally, if you are interested in volunteering to serve as a session moderator, please email the DMS Program Chair, Josh Brunty (josh.brunty@marshall.edu), or Co-Chair, Christina Malone (camalone@gmail.com). Not only do reviewers, moderators, and volunteers play a pivotal role in the success of the annual conference, but these activities count as service to the Academy for membership and promotion requirements.

We look forward to seeing you all in Denver!
