The Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE) researchers will present at the 2022 International Association for Identification (IAI) Annual Educational Conference. The conference will be held July 31-Aug. 6 in Omaha, Neb. The week-long event includes scientific, technical and operational lectures, as well as hands-on workshops focused on various topics.

CSAFE researchers will share the latest advancements in their research activities, including footwear, handwriting, and latent print analysis; forensic methods for digital evidence; and statistical methods in forensic science. The CSAFE workshops and lectures are listed below.

CSAFE is a conference sponsor and will be in booth 529 in the exhibit hall starting Monday, Aug. 1 through Wednesday, Aug. 3. For more information about CSAFE attending the IAI Conference, visit forensicstats.org/iai2022.
