AAFS 2016 Forensic Sciences

February 22, 2016 - February 27, 2016

AAFS 2016 American Academy of Forensic Sciences

The 68th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences AAFS 2016 will be held February 22-27, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

On February 22-23 the Organization of Scientific Area Committees for Forensic Science (OSAC) Subcommittee and Scientific Area Committee (SAC) chairs, covering 24 forensic science disciplines, will describe each unit’s latest projects, task groups, and planned outcomes—as well as provide status updates on specific standards or guidelines.

Highlighted presentations include:

  • Advanced Mass Spectrometry (MS) Techniques for Forensic Analysis
  • Forensic Science as an Indispensable Tool in the International Cooperation in Fighting Terrorism
  • From the Ashes — Transforming the Response to Mass Disasters
  • Prioritizing Evidence Collection in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Crime Scene
  • Development of Paper Microfluidic Devices for the Detection of Low-Explosives Residue
  • Extreme Violence — Military vs. Civilian Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Cases
  • Evaluation of a Direct Analysis Portable Mass Spectrometer (MS) for the Detection of Drugs and Related Substances
  • Strategies for Scientific Problem-Solving with Physical Evidence
  • Addressing Damaged Mobile Devices for Data Acquisition

  • Introducing New Instrumental Technologies in the Forensic Drug Laboratory — Learning From Past Experiences
  • Tissue Preservation With Direct-to-Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) For DNA Profiling: An Alternative Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) Approach
  • Modern Methodology for Explosives Tagging and Encoding Based on Luminescent Metal Organic Frameworks
  • Challenges for Implementing a New Paradigm in Fire Debris Analysis and Reporting
  • The Potential of Comprehensive Gas Chromatography (GC) in Forensic Fire Investigations
  • Battlefield Forensics: A Precursor to Counterterrorism, Peace, and Security

The more than 7,000 members of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences are divided into eleven sections spanning the forensic enterprise. Included among the Academy’s members are physicians, attorneys, dentists, toxicologists, anthropologists, document examiners, digital evidence experts, psychiatrists, physicists, engineers, criminalists, educators, and others.
