Global Call for Papers Now Open!

We’re excited to be bringing back Magnet Virtual Summit February 27-March 7, 2024!

MVS is a fantastic chance for DFIR experts and newcomers alike to join a virtual event that offers a wide variety of presenters from many areas of expertise sharing their research in the latest trends in the fields of digital forensics, incident response, cybersecurity, corporate investigations, and much more.

Do you want to share your knowledge and fill one of our available 30 or 50-minute slots?

We’re currently accepting submissions for presentations at MVS 2024, and we want to hear from you! This is your opportunity to share information on a topic of your choice with fellow DFIR practitioners on a global platform.

Any qualified industry professional is welcome to submit, and all ideas are welcome, including DFIR talks that don’t necessarily tie directly back to our products. Our goal for this event is to be relevant to the industry, with general interest talks that help investigators from all walks.

And we want to make the most of the virtual format by making sure we hear from voices around the world. Local perspectives can be extremely valuable, and we want you to share the unique challenges you may face within your area.

Submit your presentation here.

We’re also excited to share that we’ll be coming back to Nashville April 15-17, 2024, for Magnet User Summit 2024—so save the date!

If you’re interested in speaking at both events, there’s an option in the submission form. In the meantime, keep an eye out for registration details as they’re available.

Ideas of What to Share


Have you come across a new app, mobile device, or piece of data that required some research? Share your findings and how you got more info—it could be very helpful for anyone else who comes across it!


Maybe it’s a mobile device model seen only in your region, or a new way criminals or corporate intruders are escaping detection. What are some unique challenges you’ve faced and how did you overcome them?


We want to hear about the processes, divisions of labor, and tools you use to get results back to investigators faster, improve the quality of results you provide, or track cases more easily.


Share a story about you overcame a frustrating process, a tricky device, or some hidden data. Let us know what you did to get through it and what others could do to avoid the situation in the future.

Need some help getting the ideas flowing? Check out some suggested topics below. If you’ve got a different topic in mind, please feel free to submit it!

The deadline to submit to our CFP is October 2, 2023.
