The Second Annual Northeast Digital Forensics Exchange
The Northeast Digital Forensics Exchange (NeFX) in cooperation with the ACM is a workshop, sponsored in part by the Army Research Office, the National Science Foundation, and in 2010 Georgetown University, to foster collaboration on digital forensics and information assurance between federal and state law enforcement, academia, and industry. Our goal is to bring together leading practitioners and academics in order to yield partnerships that advance research on digital forensic science through mutual sharing of the problems of practice and research.
Our motivation is two fold. First, we wish to inform and enhance the research agendas of academics through the field experiences of law enforcement and government practitioners and the limitations they see in current practices. Second, we wish to inform and enhance current practices and general knowledge by sharing the latest results of researchers.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Network Forensics
- Small-scale and Mobile Device Forensics
- Data Processing and Analytics
- Software Forensics and Malware Analysis
- File Carving and File System Analysis
- Anti-forensics Techniques
- Digital Forensics (from signal processing perspective)
- Evidence Modeling and Principles
- Live and Memory Analysis
- Multimedia Forensics
- Database, Web, and Cloud Computing System Forensics
- Digital Evidence Storage and Preservation
- Forensic tool Validation: Methodologies and Principles
- Cyber-crime Strategy Analysis & Modeling
- Advanced search, analysis, and presentation of digital evidence
- Courtroom expert witness and case presentation
- Case studies
- Legal and Sociological Issues
- Intelligence Issues in Forensics
- August 27th - Early registration
Who should attend:
- Investigators and prosecutors who would like to share their experience with academics and explore solutions to the technical network problems they face when doing digital forensics.
- Academics and researchers who would like enhanced contact with practitioners to inform research agendas.
- Industry practitioners and tool developers who wish to have
stronger links to researchers and law enforcement.
- Governmental Forensics Practitioners who conduct forensics operations for intelligence, counter-intelligence, or federal law enforcement.
- Graduate students interested in digital forensics.
