Message from the Chairperson of ENFSI, Erkki Sippola

 

Dear Forensic Colleagues,
Dear Forensic Stakeholders,

Three years ago the last European Academy of Forensic Science (EAFS) Conference took place in Prague, the Czech Republic. It provided us with an excellent selection of presentations, workshops, posters and commercial exhibitions. Close to 1000 experts working in different fields of forensic science met, taught, learned, networked and just had a great time.

Now the EAFS 2018 is approaching. Based on the experiences of the previous conferences our Lyonnaise colleagues are doing their best to organize this important event. The topic of the EAFS 2018 – The Forensic Odyssey – well describes our endless journey in forensic science to carry out research and development, to improve our methodology and processes and to educate and train forensic experts.

The conference is mostly, but not only, for experts of forensic science and for providers of forensic services. But also ENFSI’s stakeholders from the EC and EU agencies and important industrial partners are kindly invited to attend the conference.

Lyon is a beautiful city and a perfect place to arrange this triennial meeting!
With these few words, I am honored to invite you to the EAFS 2018 Conference.
Take your opportunity to contribute and to meet the best forensic scientists in the world!
Offer the organizing committee your wildest ideas concerning workshops, parallel sessions, posters and exhibition booths!

Take a chance to spend a few extra days to enjoy the French gastronomy and the amazing city of Lyon and its surroundings!

 

I am really looking forward to seeing you there!

Dr. Erkki Sippola,
ENFSI Chairperson
