The 8th EAI International Conference on Digital Forensics & Cyber Crime (ICDF2C 2016), will take place in New York City, USA on 28-30 September, 2016.

As the Internet has made it easier to perpetrate crimes by providing criminals an avenue for launching attacks with relative anonymity and the increased complexity of the communication and networking infrastructure is making investigation of cybercrimes difficult, the field of digital forensics and cybercrime investigation has become very important for law enforcement, national security, and information assurance.

This year, in the light of these changes, ICDF2C 2016, wants to embrace two themes: Usage and implications of machine learning in digital forensic and Big data and digital forensics. Authors are encouraged to submit papers relating to these themes and also to the following topics of interest:

  • Anti Forensics and Anti-Anti Forensics;
