Submit to the Magnet Virtual Summit 2021 Call for Papers (CFP)

We’re excited to bring back the Magnet Virtual Summit in May 2021 and help share knowledge on a wide range of topics within DFIR. Whether it’s industry trends, tips for corporate investigations, or ways to help specifically within law enforcement, MVS 2021 promises to be another great chance for the community to get together virtually.

As part of the event, we’re looking to you to help share your knowledge with fellow DFIR practitioners. We’re currently accepting submissions for presentations in this years Magnet Virtual Summit and we want to hear from you!

Interested in filling one of our available 50-minute slots? 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.

Applications are now open over at and you have until December 31, 2020 to submit.

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.

Additionally, we’re very interested in having attendees learn more about a variety of topics, including: 

  • O365 investigations
  • Leveraging Connections in incident response investigations
  • Amazon Web Services, Azure and/or GPC Investigations
