Topics on video

To introduce the topics that will be discussed at the HIDS, we have asked three speakers from previous meetings to tell you more about how innovation and new solutions helped them to enhance the forensic workflow, what impact that made for their lab and why this is important for the forensic outcome.

You will have the opportunity to learn more about innovations in the forensic workflow at the HIDS 2015 in Madrid where international forensic experts from the field will present their latest research.

The event will also provide you with the opportunity to participate in discussions during the plenary talks, present your HID research in a poster, or gain new knowledge at one of our workshops.

Be part of the discussion and present your work at the poster sessions. To submit your abstract use this link.
