TUESDAY, 13 June 2006
Organisers: ENFSI Digital Imaging WG, ENFSI Forensic Information Technology WG
Presenters: Arnout Ruifrok and Zeno Geradts (NL)
An overview of state-of-the-art biometric systems including facial image recognition and fingerprint recognition is given and the results of some tests are discussed in relation to practical police and forensic applications. Working of some biometric devices and methods of device ‘spoofing’ will be demonstrated and discussed
Facial Image Recognition and Identification
Organisers: ENFSI Digital Imaging WG, ENFSI Forensic Information Technology WG
Presenters: Arnout Ruifrok (NL), Zeno Geradts (NL), Johanna Morley ( UK )
The workshop starts with an exercise where photopairs will be shown and participants are asked if the depicted persons can be identified or not. Then, a forensic procedure for facial image comparison is presented and discussed. After explanation and demonstration of distortions and artefacts caused by the imaging process, a second round of photopairs will be shown and alternative procedures will be discussed.
How to Setup or Maintain a Digital Evidence Section?
Organiser: ENFSI Forensic Information Technology WG
Presenters: Zeno Geradts and Richard Koning (NL), Nicolas Duvinage
Digital Evidence is a rapidly developing field, where the amount of storage to be analyzed (hard disks and memory sticks), is expanding each year. Furthermore the variety of devices (such a mobile phones, PDA's, electronics in car, medical equipment etc.) makes it a challenge to keep up with new tools and methods for examination.
The workshop will go in depth to setting up a Digital Evidence Section, with aspects of quality assurance, training and certification and research and development within a digital evidence section in a forensic laboratory
FRIDAY, 16 June 2006
Forensic Image Processing
Organisers: ENFSI Digital Imaging WG, ENFSI European Document Experts WG, ENFSI Forensic Information Technology WG
Presenters: Jurrien Bijhold, Charles Berger and Zeno Geradts (NL), Federico Cervelli (IT)
In this workshop some basic principles of image processing are explained and an overview is given of state-of-the-art methods for forensic image processing in different disciplines. The audience will learn what is possible and what is miraculous in all the nice examples shown in the media and TV-shows like CSI. Furthermore, we will reveal some secrets of investigating the authenticity and integrity of images. The range of examples start with high-tech-science methods for video processing that could work, only theoretically, in real live casework, and ends with Matlab routines for video processing and very practical Photoshop plug-in's that have proven to work and to be useful in document examinations
