Next week, the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) will be live streaming its opening workshop for the Statistical and Applied Mathematics in Forensics program. Starting on Monday, August 31 and running through Wednesday, September 2, portions of the opening workshop for this program will be offered live.
On Monday, the workshop will open with overview lectures by leading researchers in forensic science and mathematical science for forensics. From Tuesday through Wednesday, invited speakers will address specific challenges presented by forensic work focused on pattern evidence, its analysis, the challenges for its interpretation and its presentation in court. Technical issues in imaging, image identification and image matching comprise one series of topics; quality control and quality metrics constitute another; maximizing the impact of new research in the mathematical sciences by setting research priorities is a third.
Speakers will include Bill Tobin, Forensic Engineering International; Anne-Marie Mazza, The National Academies; Karen Kafadar, University of Virginia; Peter Neufeld, the Innocence Project; John Black, Black and White Forensics, LLC; Elham Tabassi, NIST, Sarena Wiesner, Israel Police; and Jacqueline Pier, West Virginia University.
