I hope section members are taking advantage of the extended abstract submission deadline of September 30. There are three possible awards that can currently be given out by our section: The Outstanding Research Award, the Outstanding Case Study Award, and the Carrie Morgan Whitcomb Outstanding Service Award. In the past few years, we have not always had many submissions for these awards, and there have been years for which some awards were not given for this reason. It is not too late to enter papers and submissions for these awards before the deadline.

October 1 is the deadline for applications for promotion to Member and Fellow. If you have been an Associate Member or Member for some time and are eligible for promotion, please consider applying, especially if you are interested in participating as an officer in the Digital & Multimedia Sciences Section. The positions of Secretary and Chair require that you have attained the status of Fellow.
