Meeting Overview

The Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Science (CSAFE) invites you to the 2021 Field Update to learn more about our activities and accomplishments from the past year. Our team of researchers will highlight the Center’s current research projects, and give you information and tools you can use. The Field Update will provide you a chance to give feedback, suggestions or ask questions.

Field Update Highlights

  • Our faculty and staff will discuss the latest advancements in CSAFE research
  • Hear from the authors themselves as they present insights from our top publications from the past year
  • Our research team will give live demos on their approaches to statistical problems in forensic science
  • We will analyze the most popular types of algorithms and their applications in forensic disciplines

Who is Invited

The CSAFE Field Update is free and open to the public, but researchers, collaborators and members of the broader forensics and statistics communities are encouraged to attend. The meeting will be held virtually, and registration is required. If you have any questions, please contact Kristen Hanson, CSAFE Administrative Specialist, at khanson3@iastate.edu.
