With funding provided by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the NFSTC provided scholarships to the 2008 International Association of Forensic Sciences (IAFS) triennial meeting to 70 attendees (2007-DD-BX-K072).

Selected attendees were given this opportunity to explore new technologies presented at oral presentations, poster presentations, or technology demonstrations in the exposition hall at the IAFS meeting. The attendees were required to attend the meeting and to share new technology information with the broader community by submitting a Technology Synopsis report of their observations during a scientific session, workshop, or poster presentation. These reports were written in their own words by the attendees based on a template developed by the NFSTC in conjunction with the BJA. The synopses were compiled by the NFSTC along with the presenters’ abstracts for submission to the BJA.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance and the National Institute of Justice, in partnership with the National Forensic Science Technology Center.
