Welcome Note

At the last meeting of the English Speaking Working Group (ESWG) at the 27th Congress of the International Society of Forensic Genetics (ISFG) it was decided to held the 2018 meeting of the ESWG in St Petersburg, Russia, from 12 to 16 September. This will be the first such a meeting in Russia and the organisers hope to bring the English-speaking forensic geneticists from the ex-USSR countries into the fold of the ESWG.

St Petersburg is a city of outstanding beauty and three hundred years of history, first, as a capital of the Russian Empire and then, as a cultural and scientific centre of Russia. The family of the last Russian Tsar, whose remains were identified by DNA, are buried here in Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral.

The meeting will consist of two days of workshops covering important topics and latest developments in forensic genetics and two days of seminars when world-leading scientists will be presenting their cutting-edge research. Principal suppliers of forensic DNA technology will be exhibiting their products at the meeting. The accompanying cultural and social programme will provide an opportunity to appreciate the beauty and heritage of St Petersburg. The meeting will be an excellent chance to meet colleagues from various countries and to find out about their research, to meet old friends and to make new ones.

Welcome to St Petersburg!
