Following three successful Soil Forensics International (SFI) conferences in Perth (2004), Edinburgh (2007) and Long Beach (2010), the SFI organising committee is happy to announce that the fourth SFI conference will be held in The Hague, August 20-24, 2012. It will be one of the specials of the triennial conference of the European Academy of Forensic Sciences (EAFS2012).

As Soil Forensics International aims to advance the development of soil forensics by bringing professionals together for exchange of knowledge and experience, we welcome everybody involved or otherwise interested in criminal and environmental soil forensics to The Hague and are looking forward to your contributions.

Being an integral part of EAFS2012, the next Soil Forensics International conference will be held in a wide forensic environment. We hope this setting will not only give you new ideas about soil forensics, but will also make soil forensics better known among forensic scientists and practitioners in general.

  • To submit abstracts: please read the information on the website and follow instructions. Abstracts can be submitted for papers, posters and workshops, closing date is March 15th.
  • To attend: registration will be for EAFS2012 as a whole (including excursions and the social program) and opens in February. Likewise all sessions of SFI-4 will be open to all participants of EAFS2012.
