Registration Opens March 2021

You have many great options when it comes to continuing your education, furthering your career, and bringing new technologies back to your lab, so how do you choose? As the largest annual meeting focused entirely on DNA forensics, ISHI is a meeting designed for you!

Your ISHI registration includes admission to two and a half days of General Session talks featuring industry leaders and emerging technologies, 75+ Scientific Poster presentations, an exhibit hall featuring vendors in the forensic field, and organized networking opportunities throughout the week, so that you will leave with a renewed passion for your work and solutions to everyday challenges you experience in your lab.

Due to social distancing requirements, we will be limiting attendance at this year’s conference to 500 people. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and we will be adding people to a waitlist once we’ve reached capacity. Please limit registrations to five people per organization to allow for a wide variety of representation until further notice. This year, we will be waiving cancelation fees, but ask that you cancel with as much advance notice as possible so that we can allow those on a waitlist a chance to register.



Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, we will be waiving cancelation fees for attendees in 2021.

""ISHI highlights the latest trends in forensic DNA typing analysis. There are no parallel sessions ongoing simultaneously so you get to hear all the trendsetters directly. You can easily meet the presenters for networking purposes and the meeting is always well attended by forensic scientists that have been in the field since 1989! There is a lot of knowledge in that room at one time. Take advantage of it!""Chantal Frégeau // Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Forensic Science and Identification Services
