The DFRWS conference brings together leading researchers, practitioners,
industry, tool developers, academics, law enforcement, and military
from around the globe to tackle current and emerging challenges in
digital forensics. Established in 2001, DFRWS conferences welcome all
community members to share cutting-edge research, practitioner
presentations, and works in progress in a friendly atmosphere. Every
gathering includes panels, tutorials, and other "breakout sessions,"
where various issues related to digital forensics are discussed. As an
independent organization, we promote open community discussions and
disseminate the results of our work to the widest audience.
The Keynote speakers for this year are:
- Erin Kenneally, Portfolio Manager, Homeland Security Advanced Research
Projects Agency (HSARPA), Science and Technology Directorate of the
US Department of Homeland Security
- Troy Larsen, Principal Digital Investigator specializing in the
forensic investigations of virtual systems including Windows Azure at
Microsoft Corporation

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!
