Line 1: Line 1:
Although not strictly for forensic purposes, '''visualization tools''' such as the ones discussed here can be very useful for visualizing large data sets. As forensic practitioners need to process more and more data, it is likely that some of the techniques implemented by these tools will need to be adopted.
+
<b>PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU EDIT THE LISTS BELOW</b><br>
 +
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. 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).<br>
 +
<i>Some events may be <u>limited</u> to <b>Law Enforcement Only</b> or to a specific audience.  Such restrictions should be noted when known.</i>

This is a BY DATE listing of upcoming 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.
If you are building forensic tools, you probably want to start with one of these:

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU EDIT THE LISTS BELOW
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. 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 events 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 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 three 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. Training Courses and Providers - Training

Calls For Papers

Please help us keep this up-to-date with deadlines for upcoming conferences that would be appropriate for forensic research.
