December 2013 / January 2014

As usual somewhat more quiet, finishing the last cases and some holidays. I had to testify in court this month
in 's-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands for a case on the Bayesian conclusions and on interpretation of image comparison, in this case of a glove.

Also in December we had a very nice meeting of ENFSI with the board of ENFSI in Barcelona. Good discussions about publications and other issues. The number of working groups is expanding and now also the working group archaeology is being started.

Furthermore next month I start also as part time R&D program manager big data and intelligent data analysis on the forensic topics. Many calls for funding at the moment on this topic as well as cybercrime. As usual also some research proposals also with the University of Amsterdam and with the opening of the Co van Leddenbosch Center  and the Data Science Research Center also more collaboration is expected.

Also as program chair of the DFWRS EU is having a excellent number of papers, so I am looking forward to the conference in Amsterdam.
