Call for Workshop Proposals


The International Conference on Digital Forensics and Cyber Crime will be held from November 16 to November 18, 2022, in Boston, USA. 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.


We would like to encourage you to submit a workshop proposal for the conference focusing on any of the following research areas:

  • Digital forensics in the Metaverse
  • Application of AI to process unstructured information during forensic analysis
  • Hardware and robotics forensic approaches
  • Efficient hash-cracking, breaking full disk encryption and password-protected containers
  • Autonomous unmanned vehicles forensics
  • IoT and wearable devices analysis
  • Novel techniques to recover forensic artifacts on popular platforms: Windows, Linux, macOS
  • New data formats, storage containers, and their respective metadata
  • New methods for mobile devices forensics for iOS, AndroidOS
  • Cloud forensics – new tools, frameworks, techniques
  • Network routers and other network appliances (printers, scanners, etc) forensics

Workshop selection

We aim to select a diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple workshops on overlapping themes. Organizers of selected workshops will be asked to produce a Call for Papers to describe the workshop to potential participants and solicit submissions. In order to promote vivid discussions with more participants in the workshops, EAI will provide Workshop Organisers with one free registration to the Workshop for every 10 papers submitted to their workshop.

The criteria for assessment will include:

  • Relevance to conference vision/topics and attendees
  • Potential to bring in participants to the conference from different audiences
  • The overall quality of contribution
  • Provides a hands-on, collaborative, and/or active learning environment for attendees


The workshop can be of any length from 1 to 6 hours. No additional equipment or software, except for the standard presentation setup (projector/display, power outlets, internet via WiFi) is provided by the organizers. The participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops or other necessary equipment.


Submit a 1,000-word description with a brief outline of the workshop, required technical level of the audience, and possible other prerequisites via email to [email protected].
