NIST Forensics Org Seeks Members for Digital Evidence Subcommittee

forensic evidenceThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has established a subcommittee dedicated to digital evidence under the Organization of Scientific Area Committees as the institute aims to further build up the field of forensic science in the U.S.

Up to 20 voting positions are open to forensic science practitioners and researchers on OSAC’s digital evidence subcommittee, which will help create standards and guidelines for the field of study, NIST said Monday.

It will be part of the IT/Multimedia Scientific Area Committee after its approval by OSAC’s Forensic Science Standards Board earlier this month.

According to NIST, parties interested in the voting positions can apply until the end of September.

The institute will also sponsor a Forensic Science Center of Excellence that will work to facilitate interdisciplinary research within the study of digital evidence between higher education institutions and nonprofit organizations.

Applications for participation in the CoE will be accepted through Dec. 11.
