On behalf of organizing committee of World Forensic Festival, we honor to host the 20th World Meeting of the International Association of Forensic Sciences (IAFS 2014), the 6th Asian Forensic Sciences Network Annual Meeting & Symposium (AFSN 2014) and 5th Meeting of Asia Pacific Medico-Legal Association (APMLA 2014) under the name of World Forensic Festival (WFF 2014). 

Especially, it is more meaningful that three valuable meeting will be held together, and we hope that many innovative research results and case study will be submitted from various countries under the theme of “New Horizon in Forensic Sciences” 

As the crimes are becoming increasingly intelligent and sophisticated, the society expect the expanded the role of forensic specialists with accumulated experiences and accurate knowledge. In addition, through some borderless cases like mass disaster, we have learned the importance of cooperation and necessity of firm network.

We will prepare the utmost environment to share professional experiences and updated knowledge in the field of forensic sciences and promise the platform to harden the network among all participants. 

We would particularly like to encourage and welcome the attendance of younger specialists and the forensic scientists and investigators in countries at the early stage of development in forensic field. 

We cordially invite you to join us and looking forward to seeing you in Seoul, a vibrant and lovely city to visit, and offers cultural experiences that will leave delegates with unforgettable memories. Please enjoy in Seoul, Korea in October. We assure you that you will have a wonderful time!
