On behalf of the BitCurator Consortium Program Committee, I'm pleased to share some exciting announcements related to the upcoming BitCurator Users Forum 2018: Living on the Edge: Extending Digital Forensics into New Sectors scheduled to take place September 13-14 at the UCLA Charles E. Young Research Library.
Preliminary Program Live!
We are happy to announce that the preliminary program is now available on the BitCurator Consortium website. Final program details will be available in July 2018.
The first day of the BitCurator Users Forum will feature an "Introduction to Digital Forensics" workshop aimed at practitioners who are just getting started working with digital forensics tools and methods. This workshop will include an overview of digital forensics concepts, and will mostly focus on hands-on exercises and activities. For attendees looking to dive a little deeper into specific topics or issues, Day One will also feature a “Let’s-Do-This-a-thon”--collaborative working sessions on various topics, hare-brained project ideas, problems, issues, etc. We have invited submissions for the “Let’s-Do-This-a-thon” in advance, but will also be providing time at the beginning of Day One for attendees to self-organize around topics and interests. The second day will include a mix of panels, presentations, and lightning talks.
