The IEEE/SADFE (Systematic Approaches to Digital Forensic Engineering)
International Workshop promotes systematic approaches to computer
investigations, by furthering the advancement of digital forensic engineering as
a disciplined practice.
Most previous IEEE/SADFE papers have emphasized cyber crime investigations, and this is still a key focus of the meeting. However, we also welcome papers on forensics that do not necessarily involve a crime: general attack analysis, insider threat, insurance and compliance investigations, and similar forms of retrospective analysis are all viable topics. Digital forensic engineering is characterized by the application of scientific and mathematical principles to the investigation and establishment of facts or evidence, either for use within a court of law or to aid in understanding past events on a computer system.
Past speakers and attendees of SADFE have included computer scientists, social
scientists, forensic practitioners, law enforcement, lawyers, and judges. The
synthesis of hard technology and science with social science and practice forms
the foundation of this
conference. Papers focusing on any of the scientific, legal, or practical aspects of digital forensics are solicited.
