In recent years, the area of statistical reasoning applied to forensic science has undergone a rapid growth and development both theoretically but also in applied research, becoming a highly interdisciplinary field. Indeed the domain brings together police officers, forensic scientists, jurists, scholars from related disciplines and statisticians with a view to understand the constraints, mechanisms and opportunities to provide statistical and inferential support to the decision making process either at level of the investigation or in court. It is within this interdisciplinary framework that we are pleased to host the 8th International Conference on Forensic Inference and Statistics.
This conference is the only forum where all these actors can meet and exchange the many and varied aspects of probability and statistics in legislative, administrative and judicial proceedings. It is the only regular conference in the world offering a place for such a debate.
