The 7th International Conference on Evidence Law and Forensic Science (ICELFS) will be the first to be held in Germany. The initial four conferences were in Beijing (China), the fifth in Adelaide (Australia) and the sixth in Baltimore (USA). On behalf of the hosts, organizers and sponsors, the organizing committee cordially invites you to Freiburg, Germany, from July 31 to August 2, 2019.
The 7th ICELFS will examine Evidence Law and Forensic Science from a Comparative Perspective.
The proceedings will continue the ICELFS tradition of rigorous exchange between the disciplines of Evidence Law and Forensic Science. We encourage and welcome contributions to the conference through the submission of an abstract/paper. Submissions are invited on issues arising with respect to the fields of Evidence Law and Forensic Science, including (but not limited to) topics concerning:
Theory, models and values of evidence law
Nature of judicial proof
Direction of reform of evidence law
The relationship between substantive law, procedural law and evidence law
Comparative and international aspects of evidence law (e.g., convergence of evidentiary standards, etc.)
Developments and advances in forensic sciences (e.g., neuroscience, forensic psychiatry, scientific methods and standards of evidence, lie detection, assessment of credibility, etc.)
Forensic science and the law (e.g., forensics and new economic crimes, cyber space and forensic techniques, etc.)
Legal and ethical restrictions of forensic techniques (e.g., data protection, privacy, human rights, etc.)
Interdisciplinary study of evidence law and forensic science
AI, big data and evidence (and policing)
Submissions outside these topics but within the overall theme of the conference are also welcome.
