Call for Papers Is Open for DFRWS-EU 2024!

The 11th annual Digital Forensics Research Workshop, European Union edition is coming to beautiful Zaragoza, Spain in March 2024 – and is open for abstracts through September 24th!

DFRWS welcomes fresh insights, including case studies and trend reports, that challenge the current boundaries of digital forensics. The topics we accept for presentation frequently include (but aren’t limited to):

  • AI-assisted digital forensics, including machine learning and data mining for digital evidence extraction/query
  • Cloud and virtualized environment forensics, including analysis and visualization of Big Data
  • Development of digital forensic infrastructures, including case management; digital evidence sharing and exchange
  • Digital evidence law and legal issues
  • Digital forensics processes and methodologies, including tool validation
  • Forensic acquisition and analysis of databases, memory, mobile and embedded or implanted devices, vehicles, networks and distributed systems, multimedia, industrial control systems, smart cities and infrastructures, anonymous networks, covert channels,
  • Incident response on malware and targeted attacks, including preparedness / readiness
  • Anti-forensics and anti-anti-forensics, including steganography and steganalysis
  • Non-traditional forensic scenarios / contexts

You can also refer to our archive of past conferences to learn more about the papers, presentations, keynotes, and workshops we’ve offered previously.

Abstracts are due September 24, 2023

You have only a few weeks left to submit your abstracts and title via EasyChair. Please be aware that in order to submit a full paper you have to submit an abstract.

FULL Papers are due October 1, 2023

After submitting your abstracts you have one week  to submit your 10-page full research paper. If it’s accepted, it will undergo a double-blind peer review and be published in the conference proceedings.

Presentations, demos and workshops are due December 17, 2023

Presentations and demos require only a brief proposal (~500 words; not a paper) which will undergo a light review process. Accepted proposals will be given a presentation slot (~15min) during the conference.

Workshops can range in length from 2 to 4 hours (please indicate) and are delivered in morning or afternoon blocks, typically the day before the main event. Ideally, workshops allow in-depth, hands-on exploration of tools and techniques of interest to DFRWS attendees. Workshops that result from research earlier presented at DFRWS or those involving specialized hardware are especially welcome.

Posters are accepted on a rolling basis

If you are just starting research and you have a concept with some preliminary results, submit a poster. You’ll have the opportunity to present your work to conference attendees during a dedicated poster session, and to receive feedback from them. Please make sure you submit early enough to leave time to print the posters after approval.

How to submit

If your research meets the above criteria, please follow the submission criteria and guidelines and submit it in PDF format through the DFRWS EasyChair site.
