This year begins with many amendments that may influence medicolegal practice. These topics will mostly be discussed during the 6th Congress of Forensic Sciences. The Congress will not have the opportunity to be held in neither of the Medical Faculties of Istanbul University. Istanbul University Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty demanded a very high allowance for the congress halls in spite of the strict budget of the Society of Forensic Medicine Specialists. However, Yıldız Technical University will be our congress center, and we are all grateful to the Rectory of this University, particularly Prof. Ayhan Alkış. We hope that the presentations of this congress will be sent for publication in our Bulletin after the review process. Sincerely yours, Şebnem Korur Fincancı, Prof. Dr.
