The BYOP and BYOS organizers are excited about your abstract submissions for the 2018 AAFS Annual Scientific Meeting in Seattle, WA! The BYOP and BYOS sessions provide young forensic scientists the opportunity to present their research and casework studies to their peers and the Academy. Students and young professionals will gain public speaking experience as well as the chance to network with numerous forensic science experts.

The submission deadline to present at either the BYOP or BYOS session is December 1. All submissions should include a one-page, detailed abstract and a CV. Please email Jeremy Manheim and Alexandria Anstett at for poster presentations or Alyssa Badgley and Ashley Foster at for oral presentations. Young forensic scientists may apply to both sessions; however, the Committee members will decide for which session the abstract is best suited.

If you have any questions, contact either the BYOP or BYOS Committee members. We look forward to hearing from you!
