Digital Forensic Research Workshop - DFRWS [1]

The Digital Forensic Research Workshop (DFRWS) was initiated in August 2001 to bring academic researchers and digital forensic investigators and practitioners together for active discussion that addresses three major objectives:

   * Define the need and create the processes for the incorporation of a rigorous scientific method as a fundamental tenant of the evolving discipline of Digital Forensic Science
   * Develop a research agenda that considers practitioner requirements, multiple investigative environments and emphasizes real world usability
   * The discovery, explanation and presentation of conclusive, persuasive evidence that will meet the heightened scrutiny of the courts and other decision-makers in military and civilian environments

Since 2001, an annual workshop has been held in various cities around the US to present and discuss research topics. Archives are available as well as a more detailed history.
