Registration Opens February 2018! ( Details )

You can't miss ISHI, here's why.

The International Symposium on Human Identification has been witness to
new technologies, changing policies, and trends in forensics. It’s all happening at the Phoenix Convention Center September 24-27, 2018!


Are you interested in chairing a half-day or full-day workshop at ISHI? The organizing committee invites you to submit a proposal no later than January 12, 2018.

Your proposal will be reviewed by committee and selected based on perceived interest to the forensic community. Workshops should present useful content without a commercial bias.

The 29th International Symposium on Human Identification will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center. Located in the center of a vibrant walkable downtown, the Convention Center is mere steps from a variety of urban eateries, live music, professional sports, art museums and more. We have negotiated a limited block of rooms at hotels within walking distance of the Convention Center.



Exhibit at ISHI and introduce your products and services to upwards of 1000 forensic scientists from around the world. You’ll reach decision makers who purchase products and services related to all aspects of forensic DNA. Registration opens in February, 2018.

"ISHI is one of the premier meetings that focuses on forensic genetics. One has an opportunity to see what work is being done now and what is in the future. Most importantly it is the best meeting for getting with colleagues who share a common interest (which in turn means more exchange and a better learning experience)."Bruce Budowle // University of North Texas Health Science Center
