Posters Presentations

The Organizing Committee for the "International Symposium on Forensic Science Error Management" invites all scientists interested in Forensics to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the Inaugural Symposium, July 20-24, 2015. Scientists in academia, government, and industry, practitioners, and others working in the field of forensics are invited to share their results and experiences. Each submitted abstract SHOULD be assigned to one of the eight (8) focus areas:

  1. Death Investigation
  2. Crime Scene
  3. Human Factors
  4. Digital Evidence
  5. Legal Factors
  6. Quality Assurance
  7. Laboratory Management
  8. Criminalistics

For theme area details, check the Technical Tracks page. For examples of errors in forensic science, check the Technical Track Errors page.
As this Symposium is focused on error management, each submitted abstract SHOULD be assigned to one or more of the areas:

  1. Error Detection
  2. Error Mitigation
  3. Error Measurement

We plan to have multiple sessions with oral and poster sessions. All scientific presentations will go through peer-review and will be selected by the Organizing Committee.
In order to ensure a high level of quality for all sessions, each participant may only submit one abstract as "presenting author." Of course participants are permitted to be listed as co-authors on multiple abstracts. During the submission process, you will be asked if you would like to have the abstract be considered as an oral or poster presentation.
Posters should measure approximately 4 feet [120 cm] high x 6 feet [180 cm] wide. There will be material available to hang your poster (i.e., push pins, velcro, etc.) There will be space available for presenters to provide a handout or hard copy of their poster. Additional poster instructions will be made available upon acceptance.
 

Abstract Guidelines

The maximum length of each field is:

  • Title: 25 words; Abstract titles should be short, but descriptive.
  • Abstract: 500 words
  • Keywords: 30 words; separated by semicolon (;)

Please do not send supplemental materials (photos, articles, graphs or tables) with your abstract. These will not be seen by the program review committee.

The abstracts as submitted, will be made available to the public via the Symposium's website and program handouts.

The "Responsible Author" will receive an email message confirming the receipt of the abstract. Please notify your co-authors that the confirmation was received.
