The annual AAFS meeting will be held February 20-25, 2012 and we thought it would be informative to mention something about this organization. (The information is liberally adopted from the AAFS’ website.)
The American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) is over sixty years old andserves a distinguished and diverse membership of over 6,200 members. The Academy is divided into eleven sections whose members are physicians, attorneys, dentists, toxicologists, physical anthropologists, document examiners, digital evidence experts, psychiatrists, physicists, engineers, criminalists, educators, digital evidence experts, and others.

The Academy is dedicated to the application of science to the law, and is committed to education and the advancement of accuracy, precision, and specificity in the forensic sciences. The Academy publishes the Journal of Forensic Sciences and a newsletters, and holds an annual scientific meeting.
