International Web conference launches with free registration for law enforcement, lawyers and academics.

London, UK (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 1, 2005 -- The Forensic Institute, in conjunction with e-symposium, are presenting, as part of their international web conference series, the 1st International Human Identification E-Symposium (HumID 2005). It will be held online on the 14 April 2005. In addition to the live event, delegates will have access to the presentation archive throughout the year – all from the comfort of their own office.

The program covers cutting edge topics and reads like the "who is who" of human identification:
DNA Speakers: Dr John Buckleton (ESR), Dr Peter Gill (Forensic Science Service), Dr Bruce Budowle (FBI), Dr John M. Butler (NIST), Prof. David Kaye (ASU)

Mass Disaster/Terrorism Victim Identification Speaker: Prof. Sue Black (Dundee Univ.)

Round Table Debates: The Bayesian Approach to Evidence Evaluation (Prof. Allan Jamieson, Prof. Bernard Robertson, Dr. Ian Evett), Fingerprints – Science or Not (Colin Patton, Prof. Christophe Champod, Simon A. Cole, Stephen Meagher)

Keynote: Prof. David Faigman (UC Hastings College of the Law)

Sponsorship Speakers: Tom Gluodenis (Agilent), Dr. Tony Frudakis (DNAPrint), Dr. Terry Melton (Mitotyping Technologies), Dr. Ripan Malhi (Trace Genetics).

If this isn’t enough to convince you, the event is reviewed by Dr. Bob Bramley, Prof. Jim Fraser, Prof. Kenneth G. Furton, Ron Singer, Prof. Pierre Margot, Dr. Erkki Sippola, Prof. Allan Jamieson and Prof. Michael Saks.

Registration for industry professionals is free of charge. "The unique value of our international web conferences is that they cut down the budget and time barriers usually associated with offline conferences," says Val-Pierre Genton, Managing Director of e-symposium and the E-Symposium’s Co-Chair. The free-of-charge strategy is expected to generate attendance levels in excess of 1,000 delegates and create unprecedented knowledge-sharing from experts to delegates. It seems that the E-Symposium covers every angle – not only can delegates attend high quality presentations from the comfort of their own office, but they can also interact with their international colleagues via cutting edge web-based instant messaging technology. Delegates can even create private, secured 'rooms' to have closed meetings. With training and travel budgets tight or non-existent, this certainly is deliverance for the legal, law enforcement and academic communities.
