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>

SuperFetch, is a memory management scheme that enhances the least-recently accessed approach with historical information and proactive memory management. [http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2007.03.vistakernel.aspx]

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.
  
<b>Note that the following format specification are incomplete.</b>

This listing is divided into three sections (described as follows):<br>

== SuperFetch DB files ==
+
== Calls For Papers ==
The <tt>Ag*.db</tt> files are of the SuperFetch file format. E.g.

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

The SuperFetch DB files can be stored in uncompressed or compressed form, where different version of Windows use different compressed forms:
+
{| border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" align="top"
* Compressed SuperFetch DB - MEMO file format; Windows Vista
+
|- style="background:#bfbfbf; font-weight: bold"

+
! width="15%"|Due Date

! width="15%"|Notification Date
=== Compressed SuperFetch DB - MEMO file format ===
+

The MEM file consists of:
+
* file header
+
* compressed blocks
+
 
+
This format uses the LZNT1 compression method
+

The compressed block size is the chunk data size, which is part of the LZNT1 compressed data, + 2 bytes for the size of the chunk header itself.

The uncompressed block size is 4096 (0x1000) or the remaining uncompressed data size for the last block.

Revision as of 13:24, 13 June 2014

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.
