American Academy of Forensic Sciences Annual Meeting
Working with Macintosh computers is an increasingly necessary tool in the forensic investigator’s arsenal. But the Macinstosh operating system has proved a very unique beast with its own set of challenges, requiring a body of specialized knowledge to tackle it effectively. This presentation aims to familiarize the investigator with many of these basic problems and arm them with the some of the tools needed to level the playing field.

The American Academy of Forensic Sciences is a multi-disciplinary professional organization that provides leadership to advance science and its application to the legal system. The objectives of the Academy are to promote integrity, competency, education, foster research, improve practice, and encourage collaboration in the forensic sciences.

The Academy's annual scientific meeting is held in February at which time over 800 scientific papers, breakfast seminars, workshops, and other special events are presented. The AAFS consists of eleven sections representing a wide range of forensic specialties, and the annual scientific meeting gathers these professionals who present the most current information, research, and updates in this expanding field.
