Greetings from Forensic Science!!

As noted earlier, Scientific Federation is an "abode for researchers" with a "devoted team [that] is very much proficient to organize the international conferences." The website (2/8/17) for the World Conference and Exhibition on Forensic Science offers a
Welcome to all Renowned Personalities!!! Scientific Federation look forward to welcoming delegates to attend World Conference and Exhibition on Forensic Science during May 15-17, 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which will bring together world leaders in their respective fields in the fascinating environment of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
It informs us that
Forensic science is an umbrella term that has various areas under it. Forensic science would serve as an enlightening source for multidisciplinary area that monitors and encompasses law, investigation for network hacking, DNA analysis, Fingerprinting & Analysis, Forensic Sex assessment, digital forensics, digital data recovery and data reconstruction, Forensic Psychology, forensic graphology, cyber crimes, forensic technologies.
According to the Scientific Federation, as of 2/8/17, the organizing committee consists of
Jianye Ge, University of North Texas Health Science Center
Laura Liptai, BioMedical Engineering, University of California
Warrick Brewer, University of Melbourne, Australia
Jian Tie, Nihon University School of Medicine, Japan
Jorg Kreuter, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University, Germany
Mitchell S. Albert, Lakehead University, Canada
Alberto Chisvert, University of Valencia, Spain, and
Sheila M Willis, Forensic Science Laboratory, Ireland
Other than Laura Liptai, I have not tried to look up these individuals. The biography provided on the website for Dr, Liptai includes material on a different person:
The Honorable Stephanie Domitrovich has served 27 years as a general jurisdiction state trial judge of the Sixth Judicial District of Pennsylvania (Erie County). She works at Gannon University as a fully committed adjunct faculty member in the Legal Studies Program. She received her J.D. from Duqesne University of Law in 1979. She holds a Ph.D. in Judicial Studies from University of Nevada, Reno and the National Judicial College. She is a member of the American Board of Forensic Document Examiners, American Psychology-Law Society and a Fellow and Chair of the Jurisprudence Section of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.
Dr. Liptai herself is the head of a private consulting firm, Biomedical Forensics, in San Francisco and Orlando. Her C.V. lists an unspecified affiliation with the University of California at Davis. The campus directory identifies her as a visiting professor there. Her C.V. also lists among her "honors" the following book (of which she was not an author):
“Reference Manual on Scientific Evidence, Third Edition”
National Academy of Sciences Reviewer of the Reference Guide on Engineering
The manual is developed by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Federal Judicial Center (FJC). The National Academy of Sciences is a society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted by Congress in 1863, the National Academy of Science has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. The Federal Judicial Center, established by Congress in 1967 (28 U.S.C. §§ 620-629), is the research and education agency of the federal judicial system responsible for continuing education and training for federal judges, court employees, and others as well as conducting research on behalf of the federal judiciary. 2010
The organizing committee for the second conference was said to consist of (10/15/17):
Thomas P. Riley, Laporte and associates. Arizone , USA [sic]
Eugenio Dorio, Unised university. Italy
Charles Onochie Ochie,Sr, College of Arets And Huminities Albany State University, Georgia [sic]
Danielle Riveri-Simard, University Laval, Canada
Hamid Ali Al-Asadi, Basra University, Iraq
Dariusz Jacek Jakobczak, Koszalin University of Technology, Poland
Tom Gore, South West Louisiana Crime, Lab . USA
Loc Navyen, International Engineering and Technology Institute, Hong Kong
Mr. Riley is document examiner who co-founded a consulting firm after retiring from the Michigan State Police. The firm's address is a PO Box in Frankemuth, Michigan (not Arizona). Among the three named associates in the firm of Riley Welch LaPorte & Associates is Gerald LaPorte, whose is the director of an agency of the US Department of Justice (the National Institute of Justice's Office of Investigative and Forensic Sciences) that funds forensic scientific research and development.

The next month (11/30/17), the committee had changed to:
Ke Chung Kim, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, U.S.A.
Thomas P. Riley, Riley, Welch, LaPorte and Associates, Arizona
Hamid Ali Al-asadi, Education College For Pure Science, Basra University. Iraq
Dariusz Jacek Jakobczak, Koszalin University of Technology, Koszalin, Poland
Danielle Riverin-Simard, Universite Laval, Quebec, Canada
Virgilio DAntonio, University of Salerno, Italy.
Ke Chung Kim is an award-winning entomologist who retired from Penn State nine years ago. Sadly, he now is on the BIT Global and Scientific Federation conference circuit. He wrote on Researchgate that "At this stage of my career ... my work should not be classified as research but rather forensic case work in real cases. Last month I presented my paper on forensic entomology at the International Congress of Forensics and Police Tech in Dalian, China."

Among the papers accepted for this second conference is one that apparently p-hacks to find a putative relationship between "motivation [and] the Central Pocket fingerprint pattern on the left hand." The Davao Prison and Penal Farm in the Philippines may use this finding to help improve its rehabilitation program.
