Join the Southwestern Association of Forensic Scientists for the 2020 Virtual Conference!

SWAFS is excited to announce our first ever virtual conference to be held on October 5th, 6th, and 8th. Thanks to our sponsors, registration and attendance are free to both SWAFS members and non-members in the various forensic science disciplines. This conference will be similar to our in-person events and certificates will be given for individual disciplines. Certificates will be offered on each day to align with our goal of providing continuing education opportunities for forensic scientists. Topics will include seized drugs, toxicology, DNA, and much more. Attendees will be able to learn about new technologies and methodologies presented by our sponsored vendors.

As SWAFS continues to be a leader among forensic organizations, we strive to provide our members with relevant and necessary information. Our objective is to equip them with the tools to promote growth and success within their respective disciplines and throughout the forensic science community. SWAFS conferences seek to present topics that matter to your unique challenges and help you stay abreast with the current trends, techniques, and technologies. Another important aspect of our conference is networking. While networking is difficult in a virtual setting, we hope to have discussions to help us all feel like we are part of a greater forensic community.

• Free registration and no travel costs. Learn without leaving the laboratory!

• On-demand access for content review
