Digital Forensics 2016
Call for Papers
International Conference on Digital Forensics, Readiness and Investigation (Digital Forensics 2016) is an international referred conference dedicated to the advancement of Computer Forensics, Digital Forensics, Mobile Forensics Electronic Discovery, Network Forensics, Forensic Readiness, Digital Investigation and Chain of Custody. We welcome new and innovative contributions that provide insight to theoretical underpinnings, foundational research, methods and practical implementation of mobile forensic systems, advances in the implementation, design and practices of digital investigation, and the implications of use of such systems in the ecosystem.
The aim of the Digital Forensics 2016 is to encourage participation and promotion of collaborative scientific, industrial and academic inter-workings among individual researchers, practitioners, members of existing associations, academia, standardisation bodies, and including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.
Digital Forensics 2016 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers will be independently peer-reviewed.
The conference proceedings will be published and submitted for bibliographic indexing and listing by the following: IEEE Xplore Digital Library, DBLP Computer Science, Scopus, CiteSeerX, Computer Science Index, EI Compendex, Academic Search Complete, CiteULike, Google Scholar & Microsoft Academic Search.
Digital Forensics 2016 is co-located with other conferences part of Counter Fraud 2016.
- Posters will be presented during the conference.
- Industry track is available for discussing and publishing pilot and proof of concepts.
- Work in Progress track is available for preliminary work.
