Call For Papers

The ADFSL Conference on Digital Forensics, Security and Law is a unique and innovative event. It is managed by the Association of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (ADFSL). The conference focuses on the current and expanding role of digital forensics within investigations and the courts as well as its important role within cyber security - both national as well as corporate. Topics not only include technology and evidence, but also are very much focused on how to prepare students for careers in digital forensics. Conference papers are double blind refereed and provide a forum for high quality research, communication and debate on the subject of digital forensics and directly related fields. The conference is of particular interest to individuals who are interested in developing curriculum and teaching methods as well as conducting research related to the areas of digital forensics, security, and law. This conference will be of value to both academic and practitioner audiences.
