Registration is open for the Second Annual Sleuth Kit and Open Source Digital Forensics Conference, which will be held on June 14, 2011 in McLean, Virginia (USA). The program features talks by leading digital forensics tool developers and users. Participants can learn about using open source tools, how to integrate them into automated analysis systems, and join in open discussions about the strengths and weaknesses of existing tools. The conference will be of interest to existing open source users and to investigators who want to learn more about using open source tools.
On the day before the conference, June 13, there will be two half-day workshops that will allow you to get hands-on experience with analyzing web browser artifacts and making timelines with open source tools.

* Overview of Autopsy 3.0 and new Sleuth Kit features (Brian Carrier)
