15th Annual Meeting of the 
Academy of Behavioral Profiling/
International Association of Forensic Criminologists

Registration is open!

Meeting Dates: April 9-10, 2016

The ABP/IAFC's Annual Meeting is a training conference/ event that involves two days of lectures on criminal profiling subjects such as offender / crime scene characteristics, motive, and victimology, as well as related subjects including ethics, forensic science and crime reconstruction. Open to students and the general public, IAFC Members give lectures on relevant subjects based on recent casework, research, and legal decisions in the field. It is a mechanism for professionals to keep current with recent developments within the past couple of years, and for students to introduce themselves to the community.

Again, this conference is open to the public, with a registration discount offered to attending IAFC members and students of any kind. Not just beneficial to forensic, investigative, and behavioral science professionals, students in these fields are strongly encouraged to attend.

All confirmed attendees will receive a signed certificate of completion; students will receive a complimentary one year membership in the IAFC.
