OSAC Conference Registration Opens

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recently announced that registration for the 2017 OSAC Conference, coinciding with the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, is now open.

The conference will be held February 13-14, 2017.

Attendees of the Organization of Scientific Area Committees for Forensic Science (OSAC) sessions at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) meeting will be the first to hear about OSAC’s recent standards and guidelines activities and priorities. The OSAC is a collaborative body of more than 550 forensic science practitioners and other experts who represent local, state, and federal agencies; academia; and industry, working to strengthen the nation's use of forensic science by supporting the development and promulgation of technically sound forensic science consensus documentary standards and guidelines, and determining research and measurement standards needs for each forensic discipline.

Thirty separate presentations will be provided by committee chairs (or their designees). Presentations and questions from the audience will be webcast live, and archived for future on-demand viewing. The OSAC invites all to attend and participate.
