April 11 - 15, 2021 | Together Toward Tomorrow | Boston, MA


The forensic science profession has advanced due to extraordinary laboratories, successful collaborations and partnerships among laboratories and stakeholders, and transformational, visionary and servant leaders.


It was with a heavy heart that we cancelled the 2020 Symposium in Denver, Colorado, due to Covid-19. We are looking towards the future, hopeful that we will be able to be together once again next spring. Join us in The City on the Hill - Boston, Massachusetts - for the 2021 ASCLD Symposium!


ASCLD 2021 will showcase collaborations and partnerships, obtaining buy-in, implementing new technology, transforming an organizational culture, strengthening morale, talent acquisition, and more with information, tips, and lessons we can apply to ourselves, our organizations, and our profession. 


Experience workshops and presentations from dynamic experts and leaders from the forensic science profession and beyond. 


Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. - Helen Keller
