Conferece Dates: October 6 - 8, 2015
Location: Seoul, South Korea
Paper Submission: 30 March, 2015 (any time zone)Website: d-forensics.org
Special ThemesThis year, we have two themes that we intend to embrace. Authors are encouraged to submit papers relating to these themes:
- Usage, implications and investigation of the “Dark Web”
- Case studies and investigation techniques relating to cryptocurrencies
SCOPEThe Internet has made it easier to perpetrate crimes by providing criminals an avenue for launching attacks with relative anonymity. The increased complexity of global communication and networking infrastructure and devices makes investigation of cybercrimes difficult. Clues of illegal activities are often buried in large volumes of data that need to be sifted through in order to detect crimes and collect evidence. The field of digital forensics and cybercrime investigation has become very important for law enforcement, national security, and information assurance. Digital forensics and cybercrime investigations are multidisciplinary areas that encompasses law, computer science, finance, telecommunications, data analytics, policing and more. ICDF2C brings together practitioners and researchers from diverse fields providing opportunities for business and intellectual engagement among attendees.
