Scope

The International Conference on Digital Forensics and Cyber Crime will be held from December 07 to December 09, 2021, in Singapore. This three-day event is expected to attract well over 200 participants, including academics, practitioners, criminologists (or law enforcement) and vendors, providing business and intellectual engagement opportunities among attendees. The conference is organized by the European Alliance for Innovation.

Like last year, the focus of this year’s conference is on various applications of digital evidence and forensics beyond “traditional” cybercrime investigations and litigation. Topics may include new challenges posed by emerging technologies, including 5G, edge computing, AI-controlled systems, cryptocurrencies, darknet investigations, hardware forensics, and AI-based systems to process unstructured information such as CCTV, social media, IoT data. This year, quantum computing is being added as a current topic.

Potential workshops may include password cracking for forensics, forensic education, forensic applications of AI (e.g., AI for network detection), responding to an incident from a police or corporate interaction perspective, including what to expect when you involve law enforcement.
