IAFS 2017

Dear Friends of IAFS,

We are busy planning the 21st Triennial Meeting of the International Association of Forensic Sciences (IAFS) in Toronto, Canada, from August 21 to 25.  IAFS 2017 is now less than a year away!

The theme of IAFS 2017, “Inter-Professional Collaboration in Forensic Science”, will address the humanitarian aspects of forensic science to support human rights and justice. The Scientific Planning Committee has come up with an academic program that is current, relevant and cross-cutting.

At this time, we are very excited to reveal our new website (www.IAFStoronto2017.com) where you will find details about IAFS 2017, including scientific content, areas of special interest, guest speakers, networking opportunities, hotel accommodations and tourism information. Online conference registration will open in November.
