"Upcoming Conference"

The 10th Biennial Scientific Meeting of the International Association for Craniofacial Identification


On July 23, 2000, the FBI Laboratory Division hosted the 9th Biennial International Association for Craniofacial Identification's (IACI) Educational Conference.  The Conference entitled "Facing the Millennium: Advances in Craniofacial Comparisons" was held at the J. Edgar Hoover Building in Washington, DC.  The Conference is designed to promote research in the field of craniofacial identification and provide a forum for the dissemination of ideas.

The Association was developed by a group of people with a special interest in craniofacial identification meeting in 1987.  The event was the annual Conference of the International Association of Forensic Sciences held in Vancouver, Canada.  As a result a special workshop, arranged by Prof. Richard Helmer, was held the following year, 1988, in Kiel Germany.  The subject was "Advances in skull Identification via Video Superimposition."  There were many invited speakers from all over the world, setting the tone for a very international meeting.  On this occasion the International Craniofacial Identification Group (CIG) was established.  At the third meeting of the CIG in 1992 in Shenyang, China, those present decided the time had come to reform the group as the new International Association for Craniofacial Identification (IACI).

The IACI is an organization comprised mainly of medical and scientific professionals throughout the world who specialize in Forensic Odontology, Forensic Anthropology, 2 and 3-dimensional Skull Reconstruction Techniques, Computer Based Skull Reconstruction, Facial Aging for Law Enforcement, and Facial Mapping, as well as Composite Sketching.  During the conference members presented papers and lectures on various subjects pertaining to the latest advancements on these subjects.
