10th Annual ADFSL Conference on Digital Forensics, Security and Law
The ADFSL 2015 Conference on Digital Forensics, Security and Law will be held on May 19-21, 2015. The venue for the conference will be on the campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The ADFSL Conference on Digital Forensics, Security and Law is a unique and innovative event. It is managed by the Association of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (ADFSL). The conference focuses on the current and expanding role of digital forensics within investigations and the courts as well as its important role within cyber security - both national as well as corporate. Topics not only include technology and evidence, but also are very much focused on how to prepare students for careers in digital forensics. Conference papers are double blind refereed and provide a forum for high quality research, communication and debate on the subject of digital forensics and directly related fields.
The conference is of particular interest to individuals who are interested in developing curriculum and teaching methods as well as conducting research related to the areas of digital forensics, security, and law. This conference will be of value to both academic and practitioner audiences.
The deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. EST, 16 November 2014.
Notifications will be sent by 11:59 p.m. EST, 16 December 2014.
The camera ready deadline for accepted submissions is 11:59 p.m. EST, 16 April 2015
Research papers: A research question or an argument is posed and subsequently conducted. Empirical work (quantitative or qualitative) is necessary. Research papers will be presented by the authors in a regular conference session. These papers should be extensive. Typical length is about 5000-6000 words. All research papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (JDFSL).
Short briefing papers: A technology or a management briefing on an aspect of digital forensics, information security, and/or cyber law. Such papers will be presented by the author in a round table discussion format at the conference. These papers need not be extensive. Typical length is about 1500-2000 words.
Case Studies: Case studies are typically descriptions of a given digital forensics situation. Names of organizations/actors can be kept anonymous to maintain confidentiality. Case studies will be presented by the authors at the conference. Typical length is about 5000-6000 words. All case studies will be considered for publication in the Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (JDFSL).
Student Scholar Track: Up to six student papers will be selected for the Student Scholar Track. Of the six papers, one will be selected for the Student Scholar Award. The primary author must be present at the conference. To participate, the primary author of the paper must be a student. The primary author must email the conference chair and specify that they wish their submitted paper to be considered for the Student Scholar track.
Panels: Panels and workshop proposals are welcome. Typical length is about 1000 words long and covers a current technology or a controversial issue.
The primary audience will include individuals who are interested in developing curriculum and teaching methods as well as conducting research related to the areas of digital forensics, security, and law. This conference will be of value to both academic and practitioner audiences.
All research papers and case studies are double blind peer reviewed.
