On behalf of the organising committee, our partners and sponsors, I am pleased to announce the 27th Symposium of the Australian and New Zealand Forensic Science Society (ANZFSS 2025) will be held in Melbourne from the 12 – 16 October 2025.

Our theme for the 2025 Symposium will be: From Foundation to Innovation: Forensic Science in Transition.

Overlooking picturesque Albert Park, ANZFSS 2025 will deliver a scientific program synonymous with premier ANZFSS symposiums of the past, while elevating emerging disciplines and fostering increased opportunities for interactive sessions.

The social program will provide further avenues to forge new relationships, deepen connections, or continue discussions from the day in a relaxed social setting.

The Organising Committee are working hard on the finer details to ensure a thought provoking, engaging and educational experience. We welcome suggestions, offers of assistance from volunteers, or collaboration opportunities, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via e-mail.
