Past Report of Forensic Research-2015

Forensic Congress 2016

With great pleasure we invite you to the 6th Experts Meeting on Forensic Science and Psychology during October 6-7, 2016 at London, UK . The conference mainly focuses on the “Integrating Diverse aspects of Forensic Psychology into a single discipline”.

Forensic is the application of the science and profession of psychology to questions and issues relating to law and the legal system. The word "forensic" comes from the Latin word "forensis," meaning "of the forum," where the law courts of ancient Rome were held. Today forensic refers to the application of scientific principles and practices to the adversary process where especially knowledgeable scientists play a role.

Track 1:Forensic Science and reserach 

Forensic science is the study and application of science to criminal and civil laws. Forensic scientists keep the evidences preserve and collect the evidences during course of investigation.The word forensic derived from the latin term forēnsis, meaning "of or before the forum." The history of the term originates from Roman times, during which a criminal charge meant presenting the case before a group of public individuals in the forum.Both the person accused of the crime and the accuser would give speeches based on their sides of the story. The case would be decided in favor of the individual with the best argument and delivery. Forensic Scientist testify as expert witness in both civil and criminal cases, and can work for either defence or prosecution

Track 2:Forensic Psychology

Forensic psychology is a rapidly growing discipline professionally practiced by psychologists within the areas of clinical psychology, counseling psychology, school psychology, Forensic statistics and other specialties and they are engaged as experts and represent themselves as such, in an activity primarily intended to provide professional psychological expertise to the judicial system.

Track 3:Criminalistic

Criminal psychology which is also referred as criminological psychology is the study of the wills, thoughts, intentions and reactions of criminals, all that partakes in the criminal behavior. It is related to what makes someone commit a crime, but also the reactions after the crime, on the run or in court. Criminal psychologists are often called up as witnesses in court cases to help the jury understand the mind of the criminal. Some types of Psychiatry also deal with aspects of criminal behavior. Psychiatrists and psychologists are licensed professionals that can assess both mental and physical states.  If an offender is competent to stand trial; whether or not an offender was sane/insane at the time of the offense. The question of competency to stand trial is a question of an offender’s current state of mind. This assesses the offender’s ability to understand the charges against them, the possible outcomes of being convicted/acquitted of these charges and their ability to assist their attorney with their defense. The question of sanity/insanity or criminal responsibility is an assessment of the offender’s state of mind at the time of the crime.

Track 4:Forensic Medicine

Forensic medicine is the science that deals with the application of medical Knowledge to legal questions.Forensic medicine was recognized as a specialty early in the 19th century.

The primary tool of forensic medicine has always been the autopsy. Frequently used for identification of the dead, autopsies may also be conducted to determine the cause of death. In cases of death caused by a weapon, for example, the forensic pathologist—by examining the wound—can often provide detailed information about the type of weapon used as well as important contextual information. (In a death by gunshot, for example, he can determine with reasonable accuracy the range and angle of fire.) Forensic medicine is a major factor in the identification of victims of disaster, such as landslide or plane crash. In cause-of-death determinations, forensic pathologists can also significantly affect the outcome of trials dealing with insurance and inheritance.

Track 5:Trace Evidence Analysis

Trace evidence is created when objects contact. Material is often transferred by heat or induced by contact friction. Trace evidence is important in accident investigation, where movement of one part against another will often leave a tell-tale mark. Such analysis is of great use in forensic engineering.

At a crime scene there are often tiny fragments of physical evidence such as hairs, fibers from clothing or carpeting or pieces of glass that can help tell the story of what happened.

These are referred to as trace evidence, and can be transferred when two objects touch or when small particles are disbursed by an action or movement. For example, paint can be transferred from one car to another in a collision or hair can be left on a sweater in a physical assault. This evidence can be used to reconstruct an event or indicate that person or thing was present.Scientists examine the physical, optical and chemical properties of trace evidence and use a variety of tools to find and compare samples, and look for the sources or common origins of each item.The importance of trace evidence in the context of crime scene investigation is sometimes understated, taking a back seat to more individualized evidence such as DNA or fingerprints.

Other, less frequently included items are soil, cosmetics and fire debris. Some laboratories will consider fire accelerants as trace and others will include them in chemistry, even though the same tests are conducted in both laboratories. For the purpose of this series, paint glass fiber, and hair will be included in the discussion.Related Conferences on Legal and Criminal Psychology

 

Track 6:Forensic Genetics and analysis
Forensic genetics is science that deals with conduct of DNA analysis. DNA has been an important tool in forensic science since the mid-1980s, based on work by Dr. Alec Jeffreys demonstrating how DNA typing could be used to identify specific individuals. Forensic geneticists work primarily in medical or crime laboratories, where they use genetic samples to help identify crime victims and perpetrators, or family relationships. Forensic geneticists also assist federal and local authorities in victim identification, both in crime situations and following disasters

Track7:Forensic Toxicology

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of drugs and chemicals on biological systems. Forensic toxicology deals with the application of toxicology to cases and issues where those adverse effects have administrative or medico‐ legal consequences, and where the results are likely to be used in court. Forensic toxicology is a thoroughly modern science, based on published and widely accepted scientific methods and practices, for both analysis of drugs in biological materials, and interpretation of those results. Many of the methods it employs have been derived from innovations in clinical medicine and academic laboratories throughout the world. Forensic toxicologists work with pathologists, medical examiners and coroners in helping to establish the role of alcohol, drugs and poisons in the causation of death. The toxicologist identifies and quantifies the presence of drugs and chemicals in blood and tissue samples.

Track 8:Forensic Pathology

Forensic pathology focuses on determining the cause of death by examining a corpse. Forensic pathologists, or medical examiners, are specially trained physicians who examine the bodies of people who died suddenly, unexpectedly or violently. The forensic pathologist is responsible for determining the cause (the ultimate and immediate reasons for the cessation of life) and manner of death (homicide, suicide, accidental, natural or unknown).

Track 9:Forensic Nursing

Forensic nursing practice is grounded in the rich bio-psycho-social-spiritual education of registered nurses and uses the nursing process to diagnose and treat individuals, families, and communities affected by violence and trauma, and the systems that respond to them. Forensic nursing targets the identification, management, and prevention of intentional and unintentional injuries in a global community. The forensic nurse collaborates with agents in the healthcare, social, and legal systems to investigate and interpret clinical presentations and pathologies by evaluating intentional or unintentional physical and psychological injury; describing the scientific relationships between injury and evidence; and interpreting the associated or influencing factors.

Track10:Forensic Analytical Techniques

Forensic analytical chemistry is defined as analytical chemistry as it pertains to law. We recently taught a course that covered many facets of forensic science, such as drug analysis, toxicology, trace analysis, arson analysis, and DNA/serology. Representative case examples from each discipline were discussed in detail. Guest lecturers were used to cover topics such as methods in crime scene investigation, case studies involving trace evidence, and the role of the forensic pathologist. The material was presented to illustrate "real world" applications of analytical chemistry.Forensic chemistry is a timely subject that serves as a palette from which we can stimulate the interests and abilities of our students. With the backdrop of forensic decision-making, the real world relevance of chemical measurements is obvious to students.

 

 

 

OMICS International Conferences invites all the participants from all over the world to attend 6th Experts Meeting on Forensic Science and Psychology keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations and Exhibitions. 

Forensic psychology is the interface between psychology and the law. On the other hand, most legal therapists give administrations which are both clinical and criminological in nature. At the point when an analyst treats a person who was sincerely damaged by a mischance, the treatment is clinical in nature, intended to help the person in recuperating from the injury. Yet, when the therapist is approached to give a report to the court, with respect to the degree of the injury, and to survey the mental harm brought about, then psychologist is providing forensic services.

Europe counts 4.5 million children and adolescents (0-23 years old). Five percent of them suffer severe mental problems; 3.5 percent of Dutch youths receive some kind of mental health treatment. Dutch mental health care has 158,500 youths in treatment, counting 8,884 general practitioners (one doctor to eighteen patients) and 3,400 psychiatrists including 450 child and adolescent psychiatrists. The majority of the patients in treatment are boys (66%). The majority of young patients (68%) complete their treatment within a year.

The numbers of "neurologists" and "psychiatrists" have been steadily increasing over the last 30 years, psychiatrists more so than neurologists. 893 certified psychiatrists were registered by the end of 2002 which corresponds to roughly one psychiatrist per 9.000 inhabitants. Untreated mental illness can mean reduced employment, family breakdown, homelessness and suicide. The burden extends beyond the individual to family and friends. Neuropsychiatric disorders are the second cause of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) in Europe and account for 19%, with only 4% after cardiovascular disorders. About 27% of the adult population had experienced at least one of a series of mental disorders which includes problems arising from substance use, psychosis, depression, anxiety and eating disorders. Mental illness affects people of all ages, with a significant impact on many young people. Every seven years a survey is done in Europe to measure the number of people who have different types of mental health problem.
