Call for Papers

We are inviting submissions for presentations and workshops at the upcoming BAHID conference to be held on 11th - 13th November 2022 at the Fire Service College (UK). The theme of the conference is:

Back to Business

AKA The One With No Theme

Given the events of the last two years, it has been a while since we last met in person, however research, developments and work have continued in all areas of human identification, therefore there will be no fixed theme on this occasion. We are inviting podium presentations, posters and workshops on any topic related to the field of Human Identification. Speakers will range from professionals sharing experiences and insights from their career, as well as students presenting on their current research. The programme promises to be highly varied! It also offers plenty of opportunity to socialise with fellow ‘students of the dark arts’ from a wide range of backgrounds, roles and specialisations. 

We are inviting submissions from professionals, researchers, academics and students for our Call for Papers, with the opportunity to give a talk, poster presentation or host a workshop (limited slots) available. As with previous conferences, we will have student competitions for both oral and poster presentations (with cash prizes).  If you would like to be considered for the programme, then please submit your application to along with the following information:
