Rise of the machines: technology's involvement in human identification
Chancellors Hotel and Conference Centre, Manchester
Call for Papers deadline 2nd November 2018
With the advances in technology directly affecting the way in which those involved in human identification work, it is important to be aware of new, novel and developing techniques that can assist the work that we do. The increase in use of drone in search and location, the use of CCTV to identify potential threats, and developments enabling professionals in the community to solve cases long forgotten are all the result of new techniques becoming available. Therefore, this call is centred on the way in which we use technology to solve cases, conduct research and teach the next generation of professionals. Whether you are a forensic radiologist, computer facial recognition expert, use alternative light sources for blood detection, are involved in virtopsy or any other field associated with human identification we want to hear from you.
