Welcome to the 2021 Current Trends Symposium on Forensic Trace Analysis. Now in its 4th year, this On-line Symposium has gained a reputation for creating a sense of community for forensic practitioners across the globe while disseminating timely and impactful information from recognized experts in their respective discipline – a feat accomplished with no registration fee and no travel costs. Given the hard work and dedicated efforts of this year’s Program Chairs – Dr. Tatiana Trejos (Assistant Professor, Department of Forensic and Investigative Sciences, West Virginia University) and Dr. Peter D. Zoon (Senior Forensic Scientist, Netherlands Forensic Institute). The poster session is chaired by Dr. Patrick Buzzini (Associate Professor, Sam Houston State University).

PLEASE HELP SAVE YOUR SEAT!! There is no registration fee for this event! If you are able, we are requesting a voluntary donation of $10 USD per attendee that can be made by clicking by clicking the PayPal button below. Why? We pay a fee for every online “seat”. Due to its popularity, we have had to close registration for past events once the number of seats we could afford to purchase were filled. Our goal this year is NOT to shut down registration, but rather to provide a seat for everyone that would like one. A small donation from each attendee would allow this to happen. If you cannot donate, you are still very welcome to attend the event. Thank-you for your kind consideration and we hope you enjoy this year’s program.
