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.
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).<br>

<i>Some conferences or training opportunities 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 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):<br>

Revision as of 11:21, 20 April 2006

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.

Open Source Visualization Toolkits

The Visualization Toolkit
C++ multi-platform with interfaces available for Tcl/Tk, Java and Python. Professional support provided by Kitware.
Graphviz
Originally developed by the AT&T Information Visualization Gorup, designed for drawing connected graphs of nodes and edges. Neato is a similar system but does layout based on a spring model. Can produce output as PostScript, PNG, GIF, or as an annotated graph file with the locations of all of the objects---ideal for drawing in a GUI. Runs from the command line on Unix, Windows and Mac, although there is also a MacOS GUI version.
OpenDX
Based on IBM's Visualizaiton Data Explorer, runs on Unix/X/Motif.
