Welcome Note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my distinct pleasure to extend a heartfelt invitation to the 29th International Meeting on Forensic Medicine Alpe – Adria – Pannonia. Join us in Pécs, Hungary, from June 20 to 22, 2024, as we delve into the evolving landscape of Forensic Sciences in the face of 21st-century challenges.

The dawn of the new millennium has ushered in challenges for Forensic Sciences. The imperative for objective, unambiguous scientific evidence calls for the application of novel methods and a critical reevaluation of existing techniques. The advancements in Forensic Medicine, Forensic Imaging, Forensic Toxicology, and Genetics over the past decade have opened new horizons.

This meeting serves as an invaluable platform to exchange insights and experiences regarding current practices and to explore emerging techniques and ideas that shape the future of our field. Moreover, it is an opportunity to establish the foundations for future research and collaborative endeavors.
While applying new techniques presents challenges, we also acknowledge the persistent issues from the past and present. The meeting promises to be a forum for addressing these challenges collectively and charting a course toward innovative solutions.

Beyond the scientific discourse, the meeting will foster social contacts and friendships, providing a delightful backdrop for networking and camaraderie.
The University of Pécs, which recently celebrated its 650th anniversary as the first Hungarian university, welcomes you to this landmark event.

We look forward to your participation and the enriching conversations that will undoubtedly characterize the 29th International Meeting on Forensic Medicine Alpe – Adria – Pannonia.

Yours sincerely,

Gabor Simon
Head of the Organizing Committee
