2) Participation
-------------------
DFRWS invites contributions in the categories listed below. The submission details are listed below under SUBMISSION INFORMATION.

FULL RESEARCH PAPERS undergo double-blinded peer review, and the proceedings are published by Elsevier as a special issue of the Journal of Forensic Science International: Digital Investigation. We ask to submit articles according to the submission instructions.

PRESENTATIONS / DEMOS require a brief proposal (~500 words; not a paper). These proposals undergo a light review process to select presentations of maximal interest to DFRWS attendees, and to filter out sales pitches. Accepted proposals will be given a presentation slot (~15min) during the conference. Note, the presentation/demo will not be part of the published proceedings.

POSTERS allow for the presentation of current research efforts and the discussion of preliminary results with the Digital Forensics Community. Consequently, posters can include early results, a brief demonstration of a prototype or can outline research ideas. Posters will be available on the website and authors have the opportunity to present during breaks to receive feedback from the community. Note, posters will not be part of the published proceedings.

WORKSHOPS / TUTORIALS can be 2 or 4 hours (please indicate) and ideally include hands-on participation by attendees, allowing for an in-depth, detailed exploration of tools and techniques of interest to DFRWS attendees. Workshops can cover state-of-the-art research projects, useful tips and techniques for standard tools, or most anything that DFRWS attendees would consider beneficial. While commercial tools can be used, these workshops should NOT be thinly-veiled commercial advertisements.
DFRWS will provide one free conference registration for each workshop accepted.

PANEL PROPOSALS should be one to three pages and clearly describe the topic, its relevance, and a list of potential panelists including their biographies (short). Panels will be evaluated based on the topic relevance and diversity of the panelists.


3) Submission Information
-------------------
We ask you to submit all contributions via EasyChair (select the appropriate track during submission). Please make sure to follow the submission guidelines on the website. Organizers may reject work that does not follow the listed criteria.
Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dfrwsusa2022


4) Venue
-------------------
For the past two events, we successfully replicated all the components of the regular physical DFRWS event for DFRWS USA and EU, both held online, incorporating the formal technical program and the social events. Due to the uncertainty surrounding potential travel restrictions for the 2022 event due to COVID-19, we have made the decision early to run DFRWS USA 2022 fully online. Despite the conference running online, DFRWS USA 2022 will include: Keynotes, Papers and Presentations, Hands-on Workshops, Poster and Demo Sessions, the Forensics Rodeo, Interactive Birds of a Feather Sessions, Lightning Talks and of course Social Events.


5) Student Scholarship and Award Program
-------------------
DFRWS continues its outreach to students studying digital forensics. DFRWS and its sponsors will award one or more Scholarships each year to students (first author) who present their accepted research papers. One scholarship will be awarded to the Best Student Research Paper awardee. More scholarships may be awarded, depending on sponsorship funding each year. Exact award amounts will vary, but usually cover at least registration expenses. DFRWS will notify the recipient of the Best Student Research Paper award on or before the conference registration deadline. Other awards (e.g. industry sponsored awards for research in specific topic areas) may be awarded after the registration deadline and are fully contingent on scholarship sponsorship by industry each year. Refer to the website for further details regarding eligibility, funding and selection (Student Scholarship & Award Program).
