The International Conference on Digital Forensics and Cyber Crime (ICDF2C) brings together leading researchers, practitioners, and educators from around the world to advance the state of the art in digital forensic and cyber crime investigation.

ICDF2C 2017 will be held October 9 - 11, 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic. We invite contributions for completed research papers, research-in-progress papers, industrial talks, tutorial proposals and workshops. Research papers are evaluated through a double-blind, peer-reviewing process and accepted research papers will be published in printed proceedings by Springer-Verlag. Selected papers will be invited to publish their extended versions in JDFSL journal.


Authors are encouraged to submit papers relating to these themes:

  • Digital forensics of Internet of Things (IoT) and smart technologies
  • Application of advanced method for big data analysis in digital forensics



The Internet has made it easier to perpetrate crimes by providing criminals an avenue for launching attacks with relative anonymity. The increased complexity of global communication and networking infrastructure and devices makes investigation of cybercrimes difficult. Clues of illegal activities are often buried in large volumes of data that need to be sifted through in order to detect crimes and collect evidence. The field of digital forensics and cybercrime investigation has become very important for law enforcement, national security, and information assurance. Digital forensics and cybercrime investigations are multidisciplinary areas that encompass law, computer science, finance, telecommunications, data analytics, policing and more. ICDF2C brings together practitioners and researchers from diverse fields providing opportunities for business and intellectual engagement among attendees. The following topics highlight the conference's theme:

  • Anti Forensics and Anti-Anti Forensics
