The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences is delighted to once again be planning an in-person conference as part of the AGM 2023 at Horizon Leeds on Friday 27th October. Last year’s event was a great success and well received by all who attended, so with this in mind we are using the same format and venue again this year.

We are delighted to welcome three keynote speakers:

There will be two parallel sessions running through the day:

“Forensic Science: a case-based activity” will offer the opportunity for both practitioners, academics and researchers to showcase their experiences and share good practice, particularly within multidisciplinary teams. Do you have a cold case you have learned valuable lessons from? Are you working on research to improve processes for case reviews? Are you looking at good practice guidelines? We are interested in hearing about any work you are undertaking with a relevance to forensic science and its value to cases within the criminal justice system.

“Learning & Teaching” will focus on forensic science education and training, complementing the overall theme of ‘Forensic Science: a case-based activity’, submissions will explore instances where case-based examples have been used within teaching and learning, and highlighting the importance of innovative training practices.
