WHAT:

  27th International Symposium on Human Identification (ISHI)
 
For the past 26 years, ISHI has been witness to new technologies, changing policies and trends in forensics. This year’s scientific symposium will cover current issues in forensic DNA analysis including the use of local DNA databases, reducing DNA backlogs, advances in next generation sequencing (NGS) and more. Focused topic workshops held before and after the main symposium sessions provide an optimal setting for further knowledge sharing and learning. ISHI 27 workshops include:
— Validation and Mixture Interpretation SOPs
— Likelihood Ratios and Probabilistic Genotyping
— Detecting and Resolving Errors in Forensic Testing
— Simulation of NGS and Bioinformatics Workflow
 

WHO:

From warlords to rebel leaders, video journalist David O’Shea has interviewed people from all walks of life for his award-winning documentaries. At ISHI 27, O’Shea will chronicle his experience filming “Returning the Stolen,” a documentary about the work of the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo. During the late 1970s as many as 500 infants in Argentina were taken from their parents, who were detained and killed by the country’s military dictatorship for their political activism. The children were given away to supporters of the regime to raise as their own. Their grandmothers (members of the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo) have been searching for their grandchildren ever since. Using DNA testing, more than 100 of 500 stolen children have been identified and reunited with their extended families.

 

O’Shea will be joined by many other forensic experts, including Walther Parson (University of Innsbruck) and Peter Schneider (Institute of Legal Medicine, University of Cologne), presenting on a range of leading-edge forensic DNA tools and techniques for human identification.
