The 6th Annual Open Source Digital Forensics Conference (OSDFCon) will be held on October 28, 2015 at the Westin Washington Dulles. This conference focuses on tools and techniques that are open source and (typically) free to use. It is a one day event with short talks packed with information. There are both tool developers and users in attendance, and this is a unique opportunity to learn about new tools and provide feedback.
As an investigator, you should attend to learn about new tools and meet the developers building the software. As a developer, you should attend to raise awareness of your efforts. Everyone should consider submitting a talk to share their experiences and work.
As in past years, the event is free for government employees.
Open Source software is a community event. There are several ways to get involved with OSDFCon.
You can vote on the presentations you want to see (ends June 23).
You can also start working on an Autopsy module for annual contest (you can now write the modules in Python!).
We’ll post updates on Twitter using #osdfcon.
