ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
On behalf of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its partners, we are announcing the first-ever international symposium devoted exclusively to the topic of forensic science error management. Join us in Arlington, VA, July 20-24, 2015 for the International Symposium on Forensic Science Error Management – Detection, Measurement and Mitigation. Speakers, panels and posters addressing the ways to detect, measure and mitigate forensic science errors will open dialog about these taboo topics. The symposium promises to be an eye-opening candid appraisal of root causes and possible solutions to help identify and reduce forensic science errors.
The technical program will cover eight tracks: death investigation, crime scene investigation, human factors, criminalistics, digital evidence, legal factors, quality assurance and laboratory management. Each track will consist of plenary lectures, poster sessions and panel discussions.
>>> As of July 10th, we have 118 Keynote, Plenary, and Oral Presentations and 9 Panel Sessions. <<<
