The 8th Annual Open Source Digital Forensics Conference (OSDFCon) will be held on October 17, 2017. Details are still being worked out, but it will continue to be a single-day event focused exclusively on open source digital forensics tools.
The event allows attendees to learn about new software and meet the developers. The day is filled with 35-minute talks, which means you get to learn about a lot of new things.
The annual conference is free for government attendees and also offers hands-on workshops and Autopsy training. We should have the program determined by mid-July.
Here is what you can do before the conference starts:
- Sign up for email updates to ensure you are reminded to register.
- Submit a talk about software you’ve written or used. These are due by June 1, 2017.
- Start working on your Autopsy module for the annual competition. These are due October 2, 2017.
- Become a sponsor to enable the open source digital forensics community to grow and get exposure to the attendees.
Investigators should attend to learn about new tools and meet the developers building the software. Developers should attend to raise awareness of your efforts and get feedback from your users. As in past years, the event is free for government employees.
We look forward to seeing you at OSDFCon 2017!
