For 15 years, NIJ has been hosting an annual conference in which scholars, policymakers, and practitioners can learn from one another, discuss the impact of recent findings about research and technology, and apply that research to the everyday task of keeping their communities safer.
This year’s NIJ Conference will be held July 23–27, 2007, in Arlington, Virginia. The NIJ Conference (formerly called NIJ Research and Evaluation Conference) showcases promising research and technology to help criminal justice researchers and practitioners develop effective evidence-based policies and practices to reduce or eliminate crime. The NIJ Conference fosters an exchange of ideas through keynote speakers and plenary sessions, panel discussions and presentations, roundtable lunches, exhibits, and networking events.
In 2007, the NIJ Conference will build on the success of past forensic DNA panels, with many sessions devoted to forensic DNA and new technological innovations. Other panels will reflect diverse research topics such as the CSI effect, DNA capabilities, fingerprints, terrorism, probation: what works, human trafficking, violence against women, identity theft, sex offenders, reentry, drug courts, and sexual violence in prisons.
The NIJ Conference is the place to be if you are a criminal justice researcher, practitioner, or policymaker involved in public safety issues. Criminal justice students who attend the conference also will gain considerable insight. More information is available on the NIJ Web site.
