Fall has arrived and the time to begin registering for the AAFS 67th Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando, FL, has begun. The theme of the meeting will be the Celebrating the Forensic Science Family. The YFSF would like to invite anyone with five years experience or less working in a forensic environment, or any college students interested in forensic science, to join the YFSF family for our special session being held during the Annual Meeting. The YFSF Special and Breakfast Sessions are great ways to learn more about different forensic disciplines and to network with your fellow young forensic scientists.

While the AAFS abstract deadline has passed, the YFSF hosts two events aimed to broadcast research being done by young forensic scientists! The Bring Your Own Poster Session has a deadline of December 1, while the Bring Your Own Slides Session has a deadline of December 15. If it is your first time presenting, it can be a great way to get your feet wet. Please contact the officers for the session of interest to learn more.

Registration information and forms can be found in this issue of the Academy News or at www.aafs.org/meetings/2015. If you have any questions about the YFSF, please contact either Sarah Ellis or Brianna Bermudez.
