Iowa State statistician organizes symposium to discuss stronger science behind forensics

"A lot of science hasn't been brought to bear in forensics," said Alicia Carriquiry, an Iowa State University statistician, Distinguished Professor in Liberal Arts and Sciences and director of the new Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE) based at Iowa State.

Carriquiry has organized a panel that will discuss "Forensic Sciences: Toward a Stronger Scientific Framework" during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Feb. 11-15, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The symposium is scheduled for 3-4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016 in the Hoover Room of the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.

Serving on the panel will be Hal Stern, the Ted and Janice Smith Family Foundation Dean of the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences and professor of statistics at the University of California, Irvine and a co-director of CSAFE. He'll speak about probability models to assess the value of evidence.
