The call for papers for DFRWS EU 2018 has been extended to the 9th of October.

DFRWS invites contributions in five categories:

• Research papers
• Practitioner / industry researcher presentations
• Hands-on workshops / tutorials
• Panel discussions
• Demos and posters

RESEARCH PAPERS undergo double-blinded peer review, and the proceedings are published by Elsevier as a special issue of the Journal of Digital Investigation.

PRESENTATIONS, POSTERS, and DEMOS require a brief proposal, not a paper. These proposals undergo a light review process to select presentations of maximal interest to DFRWS attendees, and to filter out sales pitches. Presentation proposals must specify their target length from the following options: 20 minutes, 120 minutes (2 hours), 240 minutes (4 hours), or full day. Note, longer presentations and hands-on tutorials are referred to as ‘workshops’ described below.

WORKSHOPS / TUTORIALS can be several hours or full day, and typically include hands-on participation by attendees, allowing for an in-depth, detailed exploration of tools and techniques of interest to DFRWS attendees. Workshops can cover state-of-the-art research projects, useful tips and techniques for standard tools, or most anything that DFRWS attendees would consider beneficial. While commercial tools can be used, these workshops or tutorials should NOT be thinly-veiled commercial advertisements.

PANEL PROPOSALS: These 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.

DFRWS will provide one free conference registration for each accepted workshop / tutorial.
