The Spring D4CS/CAD4SCI Qualifying Exam has been rescheduled to run over Spring Break, April 3-April 13, 2015.
Please reconfirm that you wish to take the QUE by email to Professor Lovely. The deadline to declare you wish to take the Spring QUE was announced here as March 13.
The Masssachusetts Attorney General is sponsoring a three day conference packed with training from Monday, April 28 to Wednesday, April 30, in Norwood, MA, which is near Boston. The registration fee is $300, with an earlybird rate of $250.
The 2015 DFRWS conference is in Philadelphia, close enough for a day trip for D4CS students and faculty. It would be great if D4CS students organized a team to compete in the Forensics Challenge.
Graduate students can apply for travel funds to attend conferences. A few D4CS students have already been granted funds from this Student Government program. The deadline to apply for Spring 2015 is November 17 at 5PM. Check it out here: Student travel support
