Scientific Posters and Presentations

NFSTC scientists regularly evaluate tools and technology for the forensic community. Results are shared not only as evaluation reports and technology transition workshops, but also as scientific posters and presentations at forensic events including the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors (ASCLD) annual meetings, American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) conferences, and others.

Many of these posters (along with accompanying handouts) are available by clicking the links below. (Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view the posters. To download the free Reader, click here.)
