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!

Now Accepting Workshop Proposals

The ISHI Organizing Committee is now accepting proposals for full-day (8 hour) and half-day (3 hour) workshops to be held before and proceeding the 35th International Symposium on Human Identification to be held in San Antonio September 23-26, 2024. Workshops should be non-commercial and designed to allow for deeper learning and discussion on topics relevant to forensic DNA laboratories. Those submitting proposals are encouraged to construct workshops that are interactive and engaging, allowing participants to learn from each other’s experiences.

Workshop proposals will be reviewed by a committee of experts in forensic DNA science. Proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance of the topic to forensic DNA laboratories
  • Quality of the workshop description and objectives
  • Qualifications of the workshop organizers
  • Creativity and innovation of the workshop format

All workshop proposals must be submitted through our online portal (linked below) by the deadline of January 14, 2024, to be considered.

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).
