About ISHI

For the past 26 years the International Symposium on Human Identification has been witness to new technologies, changing policies, and trends in forensics. You can be part of ISHI 27 by organizing a workshop, giving a talk, presenting an interesting case, or submitting a scientific poster. It’s all happening September 26-29, 2016 in Minneapolis, MN!

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. Register before August 1st to save $100 off of the standard registration cost!

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