Volatile memory forensics (ie., RAM forensics) is becoming an extremely important topic to the future of digital investigations. It has the potential to dramatically transform the way we currently perform digital investigations and help address many of the challenges currently facing the digital forensics community.

We are pleased to announce the first ever workshop focused on open source volatile memory analysis. This workshop will bring together digital investigation researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest advancements in volatile memory analysis. You will also learn how memory analysis is currently being used to augment digital investigations.
