For more than 33 years the International Symposium on Human Identification has provided a forum for forensic practitioners to share information about the latest DNA technologies. From modest beginnings, ISHI has grown to be the largest meeting in the world to focus on DNA forensics and it’s applications to human identity. More than 800 people participated in last year’s symposium.

Attendees are involved in all aspects of DNA typing and come from state, federal and local crime labs in the US and abroad, parentage and testing laboratories, academic institutions, governmental research agencies and policy think tanks. More than 80% of the attendees self-identify as Technical Leaders, Laboratory Directors, DNA Analysts or Scientists. We invite you to participate by sponsoring.

"ISHI is one of the few international conferences that centers on bringing the forensic DNA community together. In my opinion, it never disappoints; presentations include state-of-the-art science, updates on regulatory aspects of the field and current applied problem sets, such as backlog reduction. The conference itself is incredibly well planned and executed."Michael Marciano // Forensic and National Security Sciences Institute, Syracuse University
