To battle with cybercrimes, investigate online financial frauds, and mediate personal digital property disputes, cyber forensics, security, and e-discovery professionals and researchers are always working hand in hand. Due to the nature of the cyberspace, these three fields are built on the same digital foundation that provides numerous similarities in law practice, legal procedures, investigation strategies, evidence handling, research methodologies, implementation platforms, and application tools.
The theme of this workshop is to advance the research in the conjunction of Cyber Forensics, Security, and E-discovery with a data-intelligent-driven, legal-proceedings-enforced, and innovative-interdisciplinary-promoted approach. While a digital forensic professional needs to work on security or join a team for mediating a digital property from time to time, a researcher in digital forensics should also think about the impact of their work on security and e-discovery. This is also true to the professionals and researchers who are working on the fields of security and e-discovery. Therefore, we are intended to establish a forum where all the researchers and practitioners in these three fields can share their latest findings and experience while have a chance to learn what is happening in these sister-fields. Not only do they ask questions and discuss their concerns to others presentations, they also have the opportunities to hear what are the concerns and impact of their research on these sister fields. As the technology keeps its unthinkable pace of advance, everything seems to become closer and similar to each other. We believe that the effort made by this workshop will promote the collaboration among these three fields and enrich as well as expand their research and practice.
The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, and review process can be found at https://qrs21.techconf.org/submission.
