DFRWS 2013 : Annual Digital Forensic Research Conference
Conference Series : Digital Forensic Research Workshop
Call For Papers
The DFRWS digital forensics conference brings together leading researchers, developers, practitioners, and educators interested in advancing the state of the art in digital forensics from around the world. As the most established forum in the field, DFRWS is the preferred place to present both cutting-edge research and perspectives on best practices for all aspects of digital forensics. As an independent organization, we promote open community discussions and disseminate the results of our work to the widest audience.
We invite original contributions as research papers, panel proposals, work-in-progress talks, tutorial and workshop proposals, and demo proposals. All papers are evaluated through a double-blind, peer-review process, and those accepted will be published in printed proceedings by Elsevier.
The 13th Annual DFRWS Conference is held in cooperation with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and its Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC). The conference will be held in Monterey, CA from August 4-7, 2013.
