Upcoming Event

Training Seminar in Digital Multimedia Forensics

The Carl-Cranz-Gesellschaft - Academy for Lifelong Learning in Engineering and Science organises a three-day seminar on digital multimedia forensics. Such forensic techniques enable the systematic evaluation of authenticity of digital media data. The seminar is targeted to professionals in security, law enforcement, industry, and media. It is taught by Prof. Dr. Rainer Böhme (WWU Münster) and his coauthors Dr.-Ing. Matthias Kirchner and Dipl.-Medien-Inf. Thomas Gloe.

  • Location: Oberpfaffenhofen (near Munich)
  • Date: 16.–18. September 2014
  • Further information and registration here (in German only)
