Omni William Penn Hotel
Pittsburgh, PA, USA

DFRWS brings together leading researchers, developers, practitioners,
and educators interested in advancing the state of the art in digital
forensics from around the world. As the most established venue in
the field, DFRWS is the preferred place to present both cutting-
edge research and perspectives on best practices for all aspects
of digital forensics. As an independent organization, we promote
open community discussions and disseminate the results of our work
to the widest audience.

We invite original contributions as research papers (long and short),
panel proposals, and demo proposals. All papers are evaluated through
a double-blind peer-review process, and those accepted will be
published in printed proceedings by Elsevier.

Topics of Interest
* Incident response and live analysis
* Digital evidence storage and preservation
* Event reconstruction methods and tools
* File system and memory analysis
* Application analysis
* Network traffic analysis, traceback and attribution
* Embedded systems
* Mobile devices
* Large-scale investigations
* Data mining and information discovery
* Data hiding and recovery
* Multimedia analysis
* Tool testing and development
* Digital evidence and the law
* Case studies and trend reports
* Non-traditional approaches to forensic analysis
The above list is only suggestive. We welcome new, original ideas
from people in academia, industry, government, and law enforcement
who are interested in sharing their results, knowledge, and experience.
Authors are encouraged to demonstrate the applicability of their
work to practical issues.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: APRIL 2, 2007
Author notification: April 30, 2007
Final draft due: May 23, 2007
Workshop dates: August 13-15, 2007

Publication Criteria

Research papers must be original contributions, should not
duplicate previous work and must not be under simultaneous publication
review elsewhere. The review process will be "double-blind" (the
reviewers will not know who the authors are, and the authors will
not know who the reviewers are). Therefore, the version submitted
for review should not contain the names or affiliations of the
authors. When referring to their own previous work, authors should
use the third person instead of the first person (i.e. "Smith and
Jones [2] previously determined..." instead of "We [2] previously
determined.."). Authors are expected to present their work in person
at the workshop and must have at least one registration per paper
in order to be included in the proceedings.

Full-length papers must be written in English and should not exceed
10 single-spaced, two- column pages with 1 inch margins and 10pt
font. Short papers have the same requirements as full-length papers
except they are limited to 4 pages. With respect to content, it is
expected that a short paper will be more tightly focused on a
specific problem and will likely have less extensive references to
related work. Authors of successful submissions will be given 15
minutes for presentation rather than the usual 30 minutes. Short
papers will be evaluated under the same quality criteria as full-length

Panel proposals should be one to three pages and clearly describe
the topic, its relevance and a list of potential panelists and their
biographies. Panels will be evaluated based on the topic relevance
and diversity of the panelists.

Proposals for demonstrations of proof of concept and research-based
tools are also welcome. Proposals should describe the tool, its
relevance to the forensics field and space/equipment needs (e.g.,
power, networking, etc.) and be submitted.


Paper submissions must be done through EDAS
(http://edas.info/listConferencesSubmit.php) and must be in PDF.
Accepted papers will need to be resubmitted in source (Word, Latex,
or plain text) to the publisher for final formatting.

Panel submissions must be emailed to dfrws2007-panels <at> dfrws
<dot> org in PDF or plain text format. Poster and demo submissions
must be emailed to dfrws2007-demos <at> dfrws <dot> org in PDF or
plain text format.
