Last Call for DIGEV 2004 Web Conference Registrations

Monday, August 30, 2004 (07:53:32)
Last chance to register for DIGEV 2004, the 1st International Digital Evidence Web Conference. The one-day event takes place online on the 2nd of September (this Thursday), but even if you can't make the date all presentations will be archived for future viewing.
