CSAFE 2020 All Hands Meeting

The 2020 All Hands Meeting was held May 12 and 13, 2020 and served as the closing to the last 5 years of CSAFE research and focused on kicking off new initiatives for the next phase of the center, CSAFE 2.0.

CSAFE brought together researchers, forensic science partners and interested community members to highlight the organization’s achievements, identify areas for collaboration, and discuss goals for the future. It was an opportunity to connect with innovative experts in statistical foundations, pattern and digital evidence, and training and education to learn from each other and discuss potential collaborations.

The recordings of the research updates are available below. All videos along with other CSAFE webinars can be viewed on the CSAFE YouTube.
