WHAT:

   

28th International Symposium on Human Identification (ISHI)

 
For the past 27 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 pros and cons of familial search policy, privacy in the era of big databases, advances in next generation sequencing (NGS) and more. Focused topic workshops held before and after the main symposium sessions provide an opportunity to dig deeper into practical topics. Workshop offerings include:

• Likelihood Ratio Application

• Expert Witness Preparation

• New Tools for Body Fluid Identification

• Detecting and Resolving Errors in Forensic Testing

• Mindfulness for Forensic Scientists

 

WHO:

Bestselling author, Michael Capuzzo will open ISHI 28 with a keynote describing the inner workings of the Vidocq Society, an exclusive group of the world’s foremost forensic investigators who volunteer to work the toughest cold cases. Capuzzo’s The Murder Room draws readers into a chilling, darkly humorous, alternate universe as the three founding investigators travel far from their comfortable offices to hunt the ruthless murders of a millionaire’s son, a serial killer who carves off faces, and a child killer enjoying fifty years of freedom and dark fantasy. Capuzzo will be joined by a wide range of presenters speaking on topics that range from forensic policy to genetic genealogy and beyond.
