2021 Forensic Science Research & Development Symposium

Event Dates

NIJ and the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence are committed to improving the practice of forensic science and strengthening its impact through support of research and development, rigorous technology evaluation and adoption, effective knowledge transfer and education, and comprehensive dissemination of best practices and guidelines to agencies dedicated to combating crime. Advancements within forensic science necessitate a forum to spread information and awareness.

During the Symposium, held during the American Academy of Forensic Sciences Meeting, researchers and practitioners will meet to discuss, discover, and share new approaches and applications to increase the impact of forensic science and elevate its status. The R&D Symposium is specifically designed to bring together practitioners and researchers to enhance information-sharing with the goal of moving research from theory to practice.

This year's event will be completely virtual. Participants will have access to a virtual poster session and be able to choose freely between two concurrent presentation tracks.
