The largest annual meeting focusing entirely on DNA forensics.

Discover the newest advances in DNA technology from top experts in the field at the 35th International Symposium on Human Identification. It’s all happening September 23-26, 2024!

Submit an Oral, Interesting Case, or Poster Abstract

The 35th International Symposium on Human Identification (ISHI) invites abstract submissions from the global community of professionals and researchers specializing in DNA forensics. Submitted abstracts will undergo a peer-review process by experts specializing in DNA forensics. All proposals will be selected based on perceived interest to the forensic community. Abstract proposals should be non-commercial and focused on educating forensic scientists on topics that will improve their technical, legal or policy knowledge.

Oral and Interesting Case Presentations due June 9, 2024.

Poster Abstracts due July 7, 2024.

Forensic Genomics is the Official Journal of ISHI

Forensic Genomics is a new peer-reviewed journal that addresses how advances in genetic testing and genomic analysis can enable investigators to break through previously impenetrable forensic DNA barriers. Led by Editor-in-Chief Nicole Novroski PhD, the Journal focuses on the use of DNA testing technologies, algorithms, artificial intelligence, and genealogical research methods to support human identification using inference tools and inductive reasoning. Forensic Genomics aims to accelerate the validation and adoption of new methods to support investigations that would be otherwise stalled with traditional testing methods (view past issues).
