Digital Forensic Research Conference (DFRWS) 2012
For the first time in 2012, DFRWS will offer an expanded opportunity to present workshops and vendor-agnostic tutorial sessions. The blend of practitioners, leading researchers and forensic tool developers attending the conference presents a unique environment for collaboration and knowledge-sharing in this format. As the most established forum in the field, DFRWS is the preferred place to present both cutting-edge research and perspectives on best practices for all aspects of digital forensics. The 12th Annual DFRWS Conference is held in cooperation with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and its Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC). The conference will be held in Washington, DC from August 6 to 8, 2012.
Proposals for tutorial sessions will preferably be tailored to a two-hour block that involves the active participation of attendees. Tutorial proposals should describe the topic and intended audience, provide an reasonably detailed outline of the session, and indicate the session's logistical requirements both from DFRWS (projector, screen, network, etc) and from the participants (laptop, OS, software, etc).
Tutorial proposals should be submitted in the same manner as workshop proposals, outlined below. Please note the submission deadline remains Feb. 20, 2012. Proposals will be reviewed and accepted competitively, based on factors including novelty, applicability to current challenges and overall impact for the digital forensics community. Submitters will
be notified of acceptance by March 9.
