The 16th International Workshop on Digital Forensics
(WSDF 2023)
https://www.ares-conference.eu/workshops/wsdf-2023/
to be held in conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2023 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)
August 29 – September 01, 2023 (Benevento, Italy)

Workshop Description
====================
Digital forensics is a rapidly evolving field primarily focused on the extraction, preservation and analysis of digital evidence obtained from electronic devices in a manner that is legally acceptable. Research into new methodologies tools and techniques within this domain is necessitated by an ever-increasing dependency on tightly interconnected, complex and pervasive computer systems and networks. The ubiquitous nature of digital devices in modern life presents many avenues for the potential misuse of these devices in crimes that directly involve, or are facilitated by, these technologies. The aim of digital forensics is to produce outputs that can help investigators ascertain the overall state of a system. This includes any events that have occurred within the system and entities that have interacted with that system. Due care has to be taken in the identification, collection, archiving, maintenance, handling and analysis of digital evidence in order to prevent damage to data integrity. Such issues combined with the constant evolution of technology provide a large scope of digital forensic research.
WSDF aims to bring together experts from academia, industry, government and law enforcement who are interested in advancing the state of the art in digital forensics by exchanging their knowledge, results, ideas and experiences. The aim of the workshop is to provide a relaxed atmosphere that promotes discussion and free exchange of ideas while providing a sound academic backing. The focus of this workshop is not only restricted to digital forensics in the investigation of crime. It also addresses security applications such as automated log analysis, forensic aspects of fraud prevention and investigation, policy and governance.
This year we are particularly interested on AI-based techniques and tools to help digital forensic investigations, and on digital investigations involving AI-based synthetic evidence generated by technologies such as Natural Language Generation (NLG), Generative Adversarial Network (GAN), and Large Language Model (LLM).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Digital Evidence Extraction and Analysis
Network Forensics
Anti-Forensics Techniques
Physical Memory Acquisition and Analysis
Digital Forensic Information Visualisation
Fraud Investigations Involving Technology
Portable Devices
Cyber Terrorism and Warfare
Log Analysis
Incident Response and Management
Investigative Case Studies

Best Paper Award
================
The best paper award will be sponsored by the Institute of Cyber Security for Society (iCSS), University of Kent, UK. The decision criterion will consider both the paper quality and the oral presentation quality.

Submission Guidelines
=====================
The submission guidelines can be found at https://www.ares-conference.eu/conference/submission/ (6-8 pages, a maximum of 10 pages is tolerated). Double blind review: All papers submitted to EasyChair should be anonymized (no names or affiliations of authors should be visible in the paper) with no obvious self-references. Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the workshop. Proceedings will be published by ACM.
