Theme & background

2021 Theme: The influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on the future of forensic science.

Over the past 12 months, considerable progress has been made in the way medical and forensics professionals are able to work. The speed at which multiple life-saving vaccines have developed across the world is one of humankind’s greatest, and most necessary achievements.

Global and interdisciplinary collaboration has enabled researchers and authorities to make decisions and breakthroughs at a revolutionary pace. Improving collaboration across borders and disciplines, in addition to the easing of cumbersome frameworks and processes that have traditionally limited progress in medical and forensic science, has been integral to this achievement.

Can this trend continue without sacrificing the rigorous processes that underpin the value of forensic science to justice systems around the world? Register your interest and join us at the FEE conference later this year.

What are we looking for? 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Hybrid working practices – how to be productive at a distance
  • Streamlining the forensic investigation and analysis process
  • Remote training initiatives
  • International and interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Virtual engagement platforms

  • Title of paper
  • An abstract of 250-500 words, outlining the content of the proposed presentation and how it contributes to the conference theme

The Chatham House Rule

"When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."

The Chatham House Rule is not in effect by default. Speakers retain the right, however, to invoke it at the beginning of their presentation whereupon it will last for the duration of that presentation only.

At no point is recording equipment of any kind permitted to be used in any conference room. This includes filming and audio recording. Photos are permitted provided there is no flash.
