BAHID Conferences


BAHID 2023 Conference

21st - 22nd October 2023 

"Pathways Into Identification"

Calls for papers are now open for our BAHID 2023 Conference, on the 21st - 22nd October 2023 at the Fire Service College, Moreton-on-Marsh. 

The theme of the conference will be Pathways Into Identification

As always we invite both oral and poster presentations from all, whether established in their field, early career or students, to present on the whole spectrum of the field of human identification. 

In addition, we are especially keen to hear presentations shedding light on lesser known aspects of human identification, on mental health in forensic sciences, and on resources available to/experiences of those seeking to start or advance their career in this field. As we are well aware it is not always easy to take those first steps, we would also like to hear about your experiences and pathways to the role you are in now. Is this where you wanted to be, or did you envision a different pathway at the start?

As with our previous conferences, there are prizes to be won for all student presentations with the top prize in each category including up to £300 cash, along with a goodie from both BAHID and our sponsors. 

Please contact us on with abstracts or proposals for presentations and/or workshops. 

DEADLINE for abstracts is Friday 31st August 2023

If you would like to be a sponsor for the 2023 conference, please contact to discuss the ways in which you can get involved.
