Digital Forensics Evidence Analysis via Intelligent Systems and Practices


Training school on Digital forensics: evidence analysis via intelligent systems and practices

WHAT: Traning School 
WHEN: 3-7 October, 2022
WHERE: Napoli (Italy)

Venue (From Monday to Thursday): Hotel Royal Continental 

Location: Via Partenope, 38, 80121 Napoli NA, Italia

Venue (Friday): Università degli Studi di Napoli Parthenope

Location: Pacanowski building (Via G. Parisi 13)


This third training school is focused on digital forensics, and particularly evidence analysis via intelligent systems and practices. The trainees will mainly be young students in order to achieve the needed knowledge and capacities in order to foster the synergies among digital forensics (DF) and artificial intelligence/automated (AI/AR) reasoning researchers and, in parallel, achieve the main goals of the Action.

Increase the knowledge and capacities of PhD Students and ECI of the Action on Digital Forensic, and foster the synergies among DF and AI/AR researchers.

Grant Period Goal(s) it will address
G1. Continue introducing researchers in AI and Automated Reasoning to the main issues and problems in the daily work of digital forensics scientists and the technical, legal and criminological aspects they involve. (O1, O7),G2. Identify more relevant test data for researching. Define more challenges to encourage to researchers in AI and Automated Reasoning to develop some solutions. (O2, O5),G4. Continue creating synergies between Digital Forensic Challenges and AI and AR. (O3 and O4)
