The DFRWS is dedicated to the advancement of digital forensics research through open sharing of knowledge and ideas. Ever since it organized the first open workshop in 2001, the DFRWS continues to bring academics and practitioners together in an informal environment.

DFRWS conferences publicize and discuss high quality research outcomes selected in a thorough peer review process. In recent years, DFRWS conferences have added practitioner presentations and hands-on tutorials taught by leading experts in the fields. The continued expansion of DFRWS-EU conferences is intended as a focal point for the European digital forensic community, allowing practitioners and researchers to meet and exchange ideas without the need for transatlantic travel.

The proceedings of DFRWS-EU 2015 will be published on the DFRWS Website as well as in a special issue of Elsevier's Digital Investigation journal. We invite original contributions as research papers, panel proposals, work-in-progress talks, tutorial and workshop proposals, and demo or singleer proposals on the following topics:
