The month May was a quiet month due to the number of holidays during this month, so time to read and make some new plan and working on casework as well as doing some presentations and giving some courses. Before the summer it appears the number of reviews being asked rises, so I did lots of effort in reading all interesting research. Also testing several new software approaches. Big data (analyzing thousands of terabytes for forensic investigation) seems to be one of the nice challenges, and it appears there is lots of interest. Also I have to testify as expert witness in June for a case.
Several conferences are approaches, such as the IALM 2012 in Istanbul, where I will present two papers (one in the section of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and one poster. And I was very glad for the poster that I did not have to carry the poster, but that they have this digital system where I could upload my material to.
Also preparation for the working group meeting of the Forensic IT Working group in Rome, as well as the EAFS 2012 conference in The Hague, where I have one paper and two workshops that have been accepted. And of course also working on the proposals for the conference of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences in Washington next year.
