Title: Changing some paradigms in Forensic

Dear Colleagues and friends

Despite advancements in many different fields of forensics sciences, its progress presently takes much longer than necessary, making the way in Forensics disappointingly slow.

This impacts the efficiency of criminal investigations and causes limited implementation of new advances in Court of Law.


The II International Caparica Conference in Translational Forensics aims to connect in a transversal way all of us involved in Forensics with the objective of join together as many forensic disciplines as possible.

The idea is to share the latest advances in forensic research and forensic technology as well as to report on their implementation in real cases.

Yours truly
J. L. Capelo

Hotel Aldeia dos Capuchos

Be aware of cold calls from Convention Hotel Services (CHS) or from someone named Adam Max! A company called CHS (Convention Hotel Services) is calling or e-mailing attendees of conferences worldwide, claiming to work for the conference organizers and asking for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation. If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! None of the parties involved in the organization of FORENSICS 2019 is working with CHS

We look forward to seeing you soon.
