Call for Papers

The field of digital forensics is rapidly evolving and continues to
gain significance in both the law enforcement and the scientific
community.  Being intrinsically interdisciplinary, it draws upon a
wide range of subject areas such as information & communication
technologies, law, social sciences and business administration. We are
pleased to announce the 7th annual workshop on digital forensics and
incident analysis graciously hosted at the Creta Maria Convention
Centre, Crete, Greece. WDFIA 2012 is supported by IFIP WG 8, and

same venue. The workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners to present original, unpublished research results and
innovative ideas. We welcome the submission of papers from the full
