About ISHI

For the past 25 years the International Symposium on Human Identification has been witness to new technologies, changing policies, and trends in forensics. You can be part of ISHI26 by organizing a workshop, giving a talk, presenting an interesting case, or submitting a scientific poster. It’s all happening October 12-15th in Grapevine, Texas.

Registration for ISHI is $755, and students are able to register at a discounted rate of $555. Those interested in attending only the workshops do not need to pay the full registration rate, and can simply pay for the workshops attended.

Pre-registration for workshops is strongly encouraged, as space is limited. On-site registrants cannot be guaranteed admittance.

Get to know the ISHI 26 speakers!

While the forensic community is a tight-knit group, we can always get a little closer, right? With that in mind, we asked our speakers some questions to get to know them a little better outside of their work. We’ll be posting their responses over the coming months in a feature we like to call Under the Microscope. Read our next installment with Joel Sutton, who will be presenting during the General Sessions.
