BIT's International Congress of Forensics & Police Tech Expo


The International Congress of Forensics & Police Tech Expo is another source of unending solicitations for "keynote" speakers who have the honor of paying registration fees and inflated hotel prices. The theme of the Forensics & Police Tech Expo varies from "Collaboration, Innovation and Identification: Gate Way to a Safer Tomorrow" to "Peaceful China, Happy Life." The Chinglish emails have some nicely turned phrases.

To see whether BIT and its conference committee had the slightest knowledge of forensic science, I responded to one email with a proposal to speak on K-DNA, a chimeric form of the molecule discovered through alchemy. The paper quickly was added to the program. I then explained that I could not present this important discovery because late-breaking experiments required some revisions.

Email
Dalian 2016

An email of 5/24/16 is at least the third to announce "BIT’s 3rd International Congress of Forensics & Police Tech Expo 2016, which will be held during October 27-29, 2016 at International Conference Center, Dalian, China" and "will cover the Interdisciplinary Symposium, workshops, training courses, and posters which will highlight the advances in technology that have transformed forensic science and technology into law enforcement practice. ... The Plenary Session will invite a distinguished international panel including Dr. Henry Lee and many others to talk about the impact of recent forensic scientific and technological breakthroughs around the world. ... we appreciate your advices on: 1. Which track you are interested in; 2. What topic you will talk about? Would you please forward us the potential speech title and brief introduction to the topic? ... We look forward to seeing you all there."

It was followed by this one on 6/13, 6/15, 7/3/16, and 7/22/16 (excerpts): "How are you doing? I am Cherry, the Program Coordinator ... . I am writing the letter to make sure if you have received my letter previously, it is about the conference: WCF-2016 which will be held during October 27-29, 2016 ... . Maybe there some problems with my mailbox ... . I am writing again to cordially welcome you to give a speech. Now we have invited some distinguished experts including Dr. Henry Lee and Dr. John Zheng Wang and many others ... . In the past two congresses, we have invited more than 300 worldwide leading experts, famous police officers, and law practitioners ..."

But then I fell back to Cherry's usual mailing list on 8/29/16, with a reminder of "a great opportunity for our friends and forensic colleagues from around the world to share ideas, case studies, briefing current cutting-edge technologies which could implant into forensic investigation and analysis." Furthermore, "Now the speech positions are still available" (even though Henry Lee and others "confirmed their participations as followings").

But that's not all. The same day, the indefatigable Cherry sent an otherwise identical email inviting me to chair yet another section: "On behalf of the Executive Committee Office, we warmly welcome you as the Session Chair and Speaker of Session 7-2: Forensic Anthropology and Sociology under Track 7: Interdisciplinary Forensic Program, as well as a (Scientific Advisory Board) SAB member of the conference."

Dalian -- Not Shenyang -- 2017

But wait! WCF-17 is back in Dalian. I hope the "extensive efforts" of the "Police Association of Liaoning Province and the section leaders" in Shenyang did not go to waste. To check, I asked Ms. Cherry about the unexplained change in the conference site. She explained (3/16/17) that "[d]ue to some reasons of the local government, we changed the hosting organization and supporting organization. The new hosting organization is World High-Tech Society and China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Dalian Sub-Council." The same renowned speakers will be in Dalian, and now I am slated for toxicology and pathology rather than biology and DNA analysis, and sociology and anthropology. It is nice to be so versatile.
