International Workshop on Applications of AI to Forensics
(AI2Forensics)
associated with 17th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR-2020)


September 12 - 14, 2020

Aims and Scope

Digital forensics is a part of the criminalistics sciences which deals with digital evidence recovery and exploitation in the solution of criminal cases through the application of scientific principles. There are several and increasingly sophisticated methods for collecting digital evidence. As a matter of fact, the evolution of technology continuously pushes such kind of methods. Rough evidence must however be used to elicit hypotheses concerning events, actions and facts (or sequences of them) with the goal to obtain evidence to present in court. Evidence analysis involves examining fragmented incomplete knowledge, and reconstructing and aggregating complex scenarios involving time, uncertainty, causality, and alternative possibilities. No established methodology exists today for digital evidence analysis. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together AI researchers and practitioners on forensics with the goal of fostering new connections and inspiring joint collaborations to explore the potential of the application of Artificial Intelligence and Automated Reasoning in the Digital Forensics field, and creating synergies between these fields.

Submissions

We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.

Submissions are not anonymous (i.e., reviewing will be single-blind) and have to be formatted using the following style files: https://kr2020.inf.unibz.it/downloads/KR_authors_kit_v1.2.tar.gz and not exceed 9 pages including figures, references, etc. If you use a word file, please follow the instruction of the format, and then convert it into a pdf form and submit it at the paper submission page.

You can submit your paper by going to "https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kr2020" and selecting "Int. WS on Applications of AI to Forensics" track.
