2018 Impression, Pattern and Trace Evidence Symposium
Date & Time
January 22nd – 25th, 2018
The Impression, Pattern and Trace Evidence Symposium (IPTES) was specifically designed to bring together practitioners and researchers to enhance information-sharing and promote collaboration among the impression, pattern, and trace evidence analysts, law enforcement, and legal communities.
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) are committed to improving the practice of forensic science and strengthening its impact through support of research and development, rigorous technology evaluation and adoption, effective knowledge transfer and education, and comprehensive dissemination of best practices and guidelines to agencies dedicated to combating crime. The future of forensic sciences and its contribution to the public and criminal justice community is a motivating topic to gather expertise in a forum to discuss, learn, and share ideas.
Funding for the 2018 IPTES is provided through a cooperative agreement from the NIJ [2016-MU-BX-K110], Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.
