Workshop Overview

Today’s law enforcement investigators face a deluge of data ranging from captured hard drives to network log files and from crimes ranging to terrorist attack to human trafficking. The volume of the data is steadily increasing, as is the urgency to find suspects or to aid victims. In last year’s Boston Bombing, law enforcement was immediately overwhelmed with terabytes of video, images, and texts from the event with an urgent need to identify and capture suspects as quickly as possible. Investigators need to quickly find evidence of a crime or completely reconstruct the criminal event from the available data. The available data may span multiple computers, multiple time scales, and multiple data formats. This workshop seeks to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of large-scale forensic research aimed to address the operational needs of law enforcement.
