It is also an opportunity to meet up with experts and specialists in the legal medicine and forensic sciences fields, at the pearl of the world; Dubai. Dubai is opening its arms to everyone, hosting the largest exhibitions and congresses in the world.

The Dubai Police is keen to host this conference, and to support any similar scientific meetings, which stems from the directives of our wise leaders to link development, progress and prosperity, with security and safety, and to make it the essence of Dubai Police’s work, to achieve its strategic objectives in the fight against crime and to eliminate it, and to arrest the perpetrators, and to control roads’ security and enable the preservation of the lives and properties of the public.

Such conferences play a key role in the exchange of skills and enriching the knowledge in the field of forensics and criminology, and to stay abreast of the latest scientific developments in the field of forensics, as well as communicate with the leading international educational institutions, and to gain more scientific and medical knowledge, towards developing the technical capabilities and skills of our staff, making them scientifically and distinctively qualified.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to accord a warm welcome to all on the first edition of the Emirates International Forensic Science Conference and Exhibition (Emirates Forensic) which will be held from 09 – 11 April 2018.

Last year, INDEX Conferences and Exhibitions Organisations Est. organized the 23rd edition of the Congress of the International Academy of Legal Medicine (IALM) which was held in January 2015 under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council.

Following the massive success of IALM 2015, we decided to associate with Dubai Police once again to create a platform wherein all experts of the fields of Forensic Medicine, Anthropology, Odontology and Chemistry, Crime Scene Investigation, Forensic Nursing, Trace Evidence, from the Middle East and the World can meet, exchange their practical experiences and share knowledge on the most pressing issues surrounding our region

We are delighted to have you all in the vibrant city of Dubai, where you can share your experiences and contribute to the development of the science of the Forensic Medicine. The Emirates Forensic Conference and Exhibition will have a significant role in enriching knowledge in the field of criminal evidence and criminology, and will facilitate the security and crime control personnel to stay abreast of the latest international developments in the field of forensic medicine.

The government of the UAE has always been keen to support this subject which was established during the eighties of the last century. Therefore, a number of high ranked officials and decision makers of international associations are expected to be present during the three days of the event. Moreover and with the support of the scientific committee a new dimension of scientific research and academic and training initiatives will be introduced during the EIFSEC 2016 Conference and Exhibition, which in turn are aimed at enriching the regions’ approach towards Forensic science and its disciplines

On behalf of the Emirates Forensic team, I extend a cordial invitation to all for their active participation and contribution to this event.
