2021 Call For Presentations

We invite all users and developers of open source digital forensics tools to submit a presentation or workshop topic by June 7, 2021. This is a unique opportunity to present your work and experience to a community that regularly draws more than 400 people in-person, and attracted more than 10,000 online in 2020. Get feedback and help direct the future of open source digital forensics software!

We are planning a hybrid event this year and we hope most speakers will be able to attend live. Therefore we are planning on accepting only a handful of remote talks. However, there is always the possibility that the event will be entirely virtual again, in which case all talks will be remote. Please submit a talk regardless of whether or not you think you can make it in person this year.

We have openings for:

  • 35-minute talk about your open source software, how you used open source software, etc.
  • 35-minute REMOTE talk where you present via Skype to the audience about your work or experiences.

Example topics include new tools and features that focus on:

  • Incident response
  • Hard drive analysis and triage
  • Memory and network forensics
  • Mobile device forensics
  • Internet of Things (IOT) forensics (smart speakers, home automation, etc.)
  • Election system forensics
  • Block chain forensics
  • Analyzing application-level artifacts
  • Automation, orchestration, and frameworks
