Networking Event

Young Scientists’ Showcase

Tuesday September 19th, 2023 // 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm // Hyatt Regency at the Colorado Convention Center, Agate ABC

This event is included in the conference registration. Pre-registration is requested.

Are you a student or scientist early in your career looking to share your research and gain feedback from colleagues? Consider attending our first Young Scientists’ Showcase scheduled for Tuesday evening.


The evening will begin with a chance to network with fellow students, newly minted forensic scientists, and representatives from forensic institutions over light appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages. Following this, participants will share their research in 10-minute presentations (including time for Q&A).  A limited number of presentation slots will be available.


If you are interested in sharing your work, sign up for a slot. Please keep the following guidelines in mind as you prepare:

  • Presentations should be in PowerPoint format using a widescreen template. An ISHI template has been created and can be downloaded here.
  • Sending your slides ahead of time is the easiest way to ensure we will have them pre-loaded. Presentations can be sent in PPT format to by September 8th. Even if you have sent your presentation in advance, please bring a copy with you on a flash drive.


Whether you present your work, or just join as a participant, this event will help you connect with others in the field and could lead to future collaborations, new friendships and possible career opportunities.  We hope to see you at this free event!
