On behalf of the organising committee, I’d like to thank everyone for being a part of this year’s DFRWS USA in Portland! It was a record attendance I hope you found the program as informative, relevant, inspiring and fun as I did.
The conference featured 14 peer reviewed papers, 11 presentations, 6 workshops, 2 keynotes, and 1 reception on the Willamette River aboard the Portland Spirit. We brought back the Birds of a Feather Lunches after a long hiatus, connecting people around AFF4, IoT Hardware Acquisition, Reverse Engineering, and Volatile Memory analysis (plus more!).
The Best Paper Award went to Frank Block and Andreas Dewald for “Windows Memory Forensics: Detecting (un)intentionally hidden injected Code by examining Page Table Entries”.
The call for papers for DFRWS EU in Oxford is open now (until October 13), the first DFRWS APAC in Sydney opens 23 Sept, and DFRWS USA in Memphis late this year. If an academic peer review process isn’t for you, do consider sharing your research via DFIR Review. We hope that as this grows we will be seeing more presentations from this review process at upcoming DFRWS conferences.
If you would like to stay in touch, sign up to either or both of the mailing lists. Both have a very high signal/noise ratio and low volume. Expect videos of the sessions to be posted on the @DFRWS Twitter feed over the coming months.
We look forward to seeing you again soon at an upcoming DFRWS in Memphis, Oxford, or Sydney!
Bradley Schatz, DFRWS USA 2019 General Chair
