The Forensic Science Society and California Association of Criminalists joint Autumn conference, AGM & awards dinner will take place on 6-8 November 2013 at The Mercure Manchester Piccadilly.

This conference provides a unique opportunity for those active in the field of human identification methods (DNA, fingerprints and biometrics), to network with & to showcase their work to stakeholders including the police, academia, forensic science providers, research councils and government facilities.

Aim: To address the alignment of forensic science research and development with the needs of the justice system, particularly the enhancement of public safety. The recovery & provision of scientific evidence is crucial and as such the conference will:

(1) Tackle some of the on-going issues and irritations through facilitated debate
(2) Demonstrate the value of forensic science in the investigative process.
(3) Identify gaps and new opportunities for applied research in the UK and internationally.
