Advancements within forensic science necessitate a forum to spread information and awareness. 

At the R&D Symposium, researchers and practitioners meet to discuss, discover, and share new approaches and applications to elevate the status of forensic science and increase its impact. The R&D Symposium was specifically designed to bring together practitioners and researchers to enhance information-sharing with the goal of moving research from theory to practice.
