Thank you to those who submitted abstracts this year! It is because of your commitment and excitement about forensic science that we can continue to have such great quality presentations. Both committees have completed the selection process and look forward to every poster and podium presentation.

Feel free to contact either committee at or if there are any questions or concerns.

Be sure to support your fellow forensic scientists in Seattle, WA! We look forward to seeing you!
