Event details 

The Forensic Geoscience Group of the Geological Society of London (GSL-FGG) and the International Union of Geological Sciences, Initiative on Forensic Geology (IUGS-IFG) are offering a forum where contributors from the UK and internationally, can present and debate the results of recent research and operational case studies in forensic geology. In addition, this event will demonstrate where forensic geology has delivered to policy and practice with sessions on regulation and the law. The event will also focus on minerals, mining and meatal crimes, search operations, geological trace evidence and policy. We anticipate this event attracting international delegates and will encourage this by enabling livestreaming of some of the presentations. Suppliers of equipment, software and services will also be invited to attend. The meeting therefore represents an invaluable opportunity for practitioners and researchers to exchange information about recent global developments in forensic geology.

This meeting will capture interest across the geological, forensic, law enforcement, environmental science, mining, minerals, metals and archaeological communities, with those working in the fields of serious crime investigation, search, law and mining crime. Operational case studies from industry and law enforcement are encouraged. Student poster presentations are very much welcomed, and prizes will be awarded.
