Open Memory Forensics Workshop (OMFW) 2011

After the amazing success of OMFW 2008 and a <cough>little</cough> hiatus, we are currently in the process of planning OMFW 2011. OMFW is the single most important event for those who are interested in the deep technical aspects of digital investigations and forensics. It is intended for those people who realize the only real defense against a creative technical human adversary is creative technical human analyst.  No shady vendors trying to describe how they re-implemented open source tools or boisterous trainers attempting to discuss topics they only superficially understand.  This is your opportunity to learn directly from an international cadre of pioneering researchers and practitioners who have been shaping the field of memory analysis since its inception. If you are interested in getting involved or have an exciting topic you would like to present, please let the team know.  For those who want to attend, please be sure to check back frequently for registration details.  Due to the overwhelming response in 2008, we were not able to fulfill all the registration requests, so please be sure to register early! There will be a number of surprises and I guarantee it will be an event you won’t want to miss! Check out what previous attendees of OMFW have said:

"AAron was able to bring together an outstanding group of folks interested in "memory forensics" and there was some spirited discussion among the participants along with some really outstanding talks/demos.   It was also great to be able to put faces to folks who until then had only been handles in IRC or names on e-mail/blog posts in the past."

"My first impression of the event was that the underground could have set digital forensics back 3-5 years if they had attacked our small conference room. Where else do you have Eoghan Casey, Brian Carrier, Harlan Carvey, Michael Cohen, Brendan Dolan-Gavitt, George Garner Jr., Jesse Kornblum, Andreas Schuster, Aaron Walters, et al, in the same room? I thought Brian Dykstra framed the situation properly when asking the following: "I know this is an easy question for all you ‘beautiful minds,’ but…""
