FSM 2007 is a new conference on forensic and security metrology that will run in parallel with SPAR 2007 in the same venue. The first annual conference of the International Association of Forensic and Security Metrology (IAFSM), this event focuses on using the newest laser scanning and related technologies to perform higher-precision, more accurate measurements of crime and accident scenes and carry out security planning more quickly and confidently than with traditional methods.
Service providers who are IAFSM members can also receive a one-hour training session in techniques for handling evidence given by the Albuquerque Police Department. This introduction to documenting crime and accident scenes without contaminating, destroying or creating evidence will be valuable for service providers who are finding forensic opportunities a growing part of their practice.
The conference will also feature case studies by the FBI and the Metropolitan Police – Scotland Yard, introduction to forensic metrology tools, getting new methods accepted in the courtroom, vehicle accident scene analysis, pre-event security planning, forensic and security LIDAR applications, calibrated surveillance, automated face/skull reconstruction, submillimeter scanning, blood spatter analysis, reconstructing incompletely documented scenes and more.
