The term '''MAC times''' refers to the timestamps of the latest ''modification'' (mtime) or last written time, ''access'' (atime) or ''change'' (ctime) of a certain file.
+
<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>
  
[[Unix]] systems maintain the historical interpretation of ''ctime'' as the time when certain file metadata, not its contents, were last changed, such as the file's permissions or owner (e.g. 'This files metadata was changed on 05/05/02 12:15pm').
+
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.
  
[[Windows]] systems are the only systems that use ''birth'' (btime) or creation (crtime) time (e.g. 'This file was created on 05/05/02 12:15pm'). Hence MACB; Modification, Access, Change and Birth.
+
This listing is divided into three sections (described as follows):<br>
 +
<ol><li><b><u>[[Upcoming_events#Calls_For_Papers|Calls For Papers]]</u></b> - Calls for papers for either Journals or for Conferences, relevant to Digital Forensics (Name, Closing Date, URL)</li><br>
 +
<li><b><u>[[Upcoming_events#Conferences|Conferences]]</u></b> - Conferences relevant for Digital Forensics (Name, Date, Location, URL)</li><br>
 +
<li><b><u>[[Training Courses and Providers]]</u></b> - Training </li><br></ol>
  
In [[NTFS]] each file has a time stamp for 'Create', 'Modify', 'Access', and 'Entry Modified'. The latter refers to the time when the MFT entry itself was modified. These four values are commonly abbreviated as the 'MACE' values.
+
== Calls For Papers ==
 +
Please help us keep this up-to-date with deadlines for upcoming conferences that would be appropriate for forensic research.
  
Other file systems like [[HFS+|HFS]] include different timestamps like e.g. a backup time.

When dealing with MAC times it's important to know and understand the concept of time resolution.

On [[FAT]] file system (in Windows NT):

On various operating systems the update of the access time can be disabled. This means when a file is accessed the atime in the corresponding file system entry is not updated.

In Windows the access time behavior is controlled by the registry key:
+
<pre>
+
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Where a value of ''1'' indicates the access time update being disabled.
+
 
+
This is the default setting as for [[Windows]] Vista.
+
 
+
=== [[Linux]] ===
+
 
+
In Linux the ''noatime'' mount option indicates the access time update should be disabled.

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.
