Events should be posted in the correct section, and in date order. An event should NEVER be listed in more than one section (i.e. Ongoing/Continuous events should not be listed in Scheduled Training). When events begin the same day, events of a longer length should be listed first. New postings of events with the same date(s) as other events should be added after events already in the list. If a provider offers the same event at several locations simultaneously, the listing should have a single (ONE) entry in the list with the date(s) and ALL locations for the event. Please use three-letter month abbreviations (i.e. Sep, NOT Sept. or September), use two digit dates (i.e. Jan 01 NOT Jan 1), and use date ranges rather than listing every date during an event(i.e. Jan 02-05, NOT Jan 02, 03, 04, 05).
Some conferences or training opportunities may be limited to Law Enforcement Only or to a specific audience. Such restrictions should be noted when known.

This is a BY DATE listing of upcoming conferences and training events relevant to digital forensics. It is not an all inclusive list, but includes most well-known activities. Some events may duplicate events on the generic conferences page, but entries in this list have specific dates and locations for the upcoming event.

This listing is divided into four sections (described as follows):

  1. Calls For Papers - Calls for papers for either Journals or for Conferences, relevant to Digital Forensics (Name, Closing Date, URL)

  2. Conferences - Conferences relevant for Digital Forensics (Name, Date, Location, URL)

  3. On-Going / Continuous Training - Training opportunities that are either always available online/distance learning format (start anytime) or that are offered the same time every month (Name, date-if applicable, URL)

  4. Scheduled Training Courses - Training Classes/Courses that are scheduled for specific dates/locations. This would include online (or distance learning format) courses which begin on specific dates, instead of the "start anytime" courses listed in the previous section. (Name, Date(s), Location(s), URL) (note: this has been moved to its own page.)

The Conference and Training List is provided by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) Digital and Multimedia Sciences Section Listserv.
