DFRWS2016 Call for Papers
August 7-10, 2016 in Seattle, Washington, USA

The DFRWS digital forensics conference brings together leading researchers, developers, practitioners, and educators from around the world to advance the state of the art in digital forensics. Established in 2001, DFRWS has become the premier digital forensics conference.

We invite original contributions in the form of research papers, non-research presentations, demos, and posters in the following topic areas:
-Memory analysis and snapshot acquisition
-Storage forensics, including solid state
-"Big data" forensics, related to collection, analysis, and visualization
-Incident response and live analysis
-Forensics of cloud and virtualized environments
-Malware and targeted attacks (analysis and attribution)
-Network and distributed system forensics
-Event reconstruction methods and tools
-Mobile and embedded device forensics
-Digital evidence storage and preservation
-Data recovery and reconstruction
-Multimedia analysis
-Database forensics
-Tool testing and development
-Digital evidence and the law
-Case studies and trend reports
-Data hiding and discovery
-Anti-forensics and anti-anti-forensics
-Interpersonal communications and social network analysis
-Non-traditional forensic scenarios and approaches (e.g. vehicles, Internet of Things, industrial control systems, and SCADA)
-Archival preservation & reconstruction

The above list is only suggestive. We welcome 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. Questions about submission topics can be sent via email to: usa-papers (at) dfrws (dot) org

Research papers undergo double-blinded, peer review, and are published by Elsevier in a special issue of Digital Investigation. Presentations, posters, and demos undergo a light review process to select presentations of maximal interest to DFRWS attendees and filter out sales pitches. Presentation proposals must specify their target length from the following options: 20 minutes, 120 minutes (2 hours), or 240 minutes (4 hours). Note, 2-4 hour presentations are referred to as ‘workshops’ and often include hands-on participation by attendees. Additional information regarding each type of submission can be found on the website.

Important Deadlines:
Submission deadline for research papers: February 7, 2016 (Midnight GMT)
Submission deadline for presentations: April 8, 2016 (Midnight GMT)
Submission deadline for posters and demos:
Poster authors who wish to have an abstract included in the printed proceedings must submit a PDF of the poster and the proposed abstract by April 8, 2016 (Midnight GMT).
Demo providers and poster authors who do not wish to have an abstract included in the printed proceedings may submit their poster or demo request through the first day of the conference.
Conference registration deadline for all papers, presentations, and posters with abstracts in the proceedings is April 22, 2016 (Midnight GMT). Those without a registered author/presenter may be dropped from the program -- see the website for policy.

For other important dates, author/presenter instructions, or other information related to submissions and contributions, go to CFP section of the website.

Best regards,
DFRWS Technical Program Chairs

Program Chair, Nicole Beebe, PhD (Univ of Texas at San Antonio)
Program Co-Chair, Bradley Schatz, PhD (Schatz Forensic)
