Physician Continuing Medical Education Credit:
The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 49.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This continuing education activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the standards of the ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) through joint efforts between the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of the credit hours by boards of dentistry. Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this activity for 49.75 continuing education credits. Concerns or complaints about a CE Provider may be directed to the provider or to ADA CERP.
There are many workshops and special sessions that will be presented. The Interdisciplinary and Plenary Sessions will provide different views in forensic science-past, present, and future. The Young Forensic Scientists Forum will celebrate its 25th Anniversary and is conducting a workshop related to the meeting theme. More than 1,000 presentations are scheduled that will provide you with more insight into the developments in forensic science. The exhibit hall, always interesting to explore, is where you will see the latest forensic science equipment, technology, and literature.
The theme Crossing Borders was chosen by me and my colleagues at the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI). We see many definitions of crossing borders in forensic science today. For the 2020 meeting, six words starting with the letters “IN” are included in the theme. We start with International, since it is linked to crossing borders. Next, Interdisciplinary, because so many different disciplines are now working together. We include Intelligence, as we see that the combination of different fields, such as criminalistics and artificial intelligence, may provide new opportunities. Inclusiveness is also one of the topics that is addressed very well by the AAFS, and additionally looks to diversity within the organization. We should include different opinions on a scientific basis, keeping in mind Integrity and Independence. I value our members very much, and I believe we should be inclusive regarding different opinions; we should foster our international members, young and old, and all members, maintaining high standards of integrity in forensic science as well as being respectful to each other, even if opinions diverge.
Each February, the AAFS scientific meeting gathers together approximately 5,000 world-renowned professionals to present the most current information, research, and updates in their fields. More than 1,000 scientific papers, seminars, workshops, and other special sessions are presented. In addition, approximately 150 exhibitors showcase the cutting-edge technology and services of this everchanging profession.
Learning Objectives of the AAFS Continuing Education Program:
• Recognize the perspectives and roles of the various forensic science disciplines
• Assess current concepts and practices
• Discuss relevant forensic science issues related to science, evidence and the law
