EUROPOL organized the Forensic Expert Forum 2019 in the Hague, the Netherlands on 28-29 May 2019. The event involved digital forensic experts from law enforcement and international organizations and was dedicated to discussing potential solutions available in various forensic fields.

This forum is a strong supporter of the CASE language as evident form last year's post-meeting statement. Following the progress of the EVIDENCE2e-CODEX project in using CASE, EUROPOL invited the project's technical leaders to share their views on the standardization process in the forensics field and the most recent project developments.

Fabrizio Turchi (CNR-ITTIG, Italy) and Nikolaos Matskanis (CETIC, Belgium) presented the Evidence Exchange Standard Package Application developed under the project, the Evidence Package based on a CASE-enabled description and the scenarios for handling large files of evidence. Since forensic tools don’t support CASE yet, the process for converting the forensic tools' outputs in UCO/CASE standard used by EVIDENCE2e-CODEX was discussed in details.
