It is our great pleasure on behalf of the scientific committee to welcome you to the joined 6th annual meeting of the International Society for Forensic Radiology and Imaging (ISFRI) and the 12th Anniversary Meeting of the International Association of Forensic Radiographers (IAFR), which will be held in Odense in Denmark from May 11th – 13th 2017.
Forensic imaging plays an increasingly important role in forensic science and constitutes a rapidly developing research area. The joint ISFRI and IAFR annual meeting presents an opportunity to hear about the latest developments in this exciting new field and meet with colleges from all over the world.
The meeting will be held at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. It is hosted by the University Institute of Forensic Medicine in Odense in close collaboration with the Institutes of Forensic Medicine at the Universities of Copenhagen and Aarhus.
The University of Southern Denmark is the third largest university in Denmark and has a close cooperation with Odense University Hospital. This cooperation will be further strengthened with the opening of a new super hospital in 2022 that will be linked to the university campus by a new-built faculty of medical science.
Odense is a peaceful and beautiful city situated on the island of Funen in the centre of Denmark and only 1.5 hours train ride from Copenhagen Airport. The city is named after Odin, the Norse god of war, poetry and wisdom – a perfect patron for a cultural and historical hotspot.
Lectures, poster presentations and exhibits will be held at the main lecture halls next to the university main entrance. Breaks and meals will be held in the adjoining lounge and in the restaurant.
As always the spirit of the meeting is one of collegiality and respect. The joined annual meeting of the ISFRI and IAFR offers the participants the chance to meet old and new friends, to strengthen bonds and to start collaborations.
We look forward to se you in Denmark!
