DFRWS is expanding into APAC this year, with an inaugural event in Sydney to correspond with the IAFS conference.
I’m Workshop Co-Chair along with Matthew Simon so if you have some interesting ideas for workshops let me know soon.
The first DFRWS APAC conference will be held in Sydney in conjunction with the 22nd Triennial Meeting of the International Association of Forensic Sciences (IAFS) in conjunction with the 25th Symposium of the Australian & New Zealand Forensic Science Society (21 - 25 September 2020). This event brings together thousands of researchers and practitioners in all forensic disciplines, including those in emerging nations, and will have a major impact on digital forensic science. The overall theme “Forensic Science 2020 – Where to from here?” aims to develop strategies and solutions to strengthen digital forensic science, and forensic science more broadly. This event is a unique opportunity to share digital forensic knowledge, best practice and research across the scientific, legal and law enforcement communities. We invite new, original ideas from people in academia, industry, government, and law enforcement who are interested in sharing their results, knowledge, and experience. Authors are encouraged to demonstrate the applicability of their work to practical issues. Topics of interest include forensic exploitation of the various forms of digital/electronic information that may form part of an investigation (e.g., data from mobile devices, computers, IoT, GPS systems, cloud systems, etc.), including its collection, analysis and interpretation. Rationales and approaches for integrating digital forensics with other forensic disciplines, and applying advanced data analysis methods. Questions about submission topics can be sent via email to: apac-papers (at) dfrws (dot) org

Presentations are of 20 minutes duration and are delivered alongside academic papers in the technical program. Workshops occur either before the main conference, and workshop submission guidelines are available here: https://iafs2020.com.au/workshops/Workshops are intended as in-depth and practical learning opportunities for attendees and often include hands-on participation by attendees. Workshop proposals must specify their target length of either 2 or 4 hours. The objective of this joint DFRWS, IAFS and ANZFSS convening is to be a focal point for anyone involved or interested in making the world safer and fairer with science and medicine.
