Technical Program:

The conference seeks to be a forum for the discussion of all aspects of forensic isotope ratio analysis (light, radiogenic, and non-traditional) by sharing information on case studies as well as basic analytical science and underpinning eco-geo-climatological spatial mapping and modeling.

We solicit presentations on the following themes, but topics outside of these themes will be considered.

  • Case studies in which isotope ratios have been employed in the investigation and/or prosecution of a crime;
  • Use of isotope ratio analyses to demonstrate trafficking in exotic animals or animal products;
  • Use of isotope ratios to trace sources of food for health and safety reasons as well as authenticity;
  • Isotope composition of human tissues for provenance estimation—with an emphasis on physiological studies;
  • Applications in which trace element analyses complement forensic isotope approaches;
  • Use of isotope ratio analyses in the forensic investigation of contraband materials (counterfeit currency, narcotics, explosives); and
  • Technical innovations in isotope ratio mass spectrometry and isotope ratio spectroscopy.

Conference Format:

The conference will be a combination of oral and poster presentations as well as panel discussions.
