European Radar Conference 2016

5th – 7th October 2016

The 13th European Radar Conference (EuRAD 2016) will be held from October 5th to October 7th, 2016 in London, United Kingdom, in the framework of the European Microwave Week 2016. This Radar Conference is the major European event for the present status and the future trends in the field of radar technology, system design, and applications.

In the Radar Sub-systems and Modelling area, the conference focuses on radar EM modelling and characterization, antenna design, simulation and measurements, active/passive phased arrays and transceiver technologies as well as reconfigurable sub-systems. Developments in techniques for radar simulation and system performance modelling are also included.

The Radar Signal Processing topic will gather the main recent innovative research contributions on digital beamforming, MIMO processing, interferometry, polarimetry, tomography, waveform diversity, tracking, target localization, high-resolution radar signal processing techniques and multidimensional imaging.

The Radar Architecture and Systems topic addresses the development of sensors from the classical designs such as CW, over-the-horizon, passive, noise and polarimetric radar, up to the most complex and sophisticated architectures, such multifunctional systems, cognitive radar, bio-inspired radar and UWB systems.

The Radar Applications area covers various fields such as mm-wave and THz imaging, ground penetrating radar, surveillance, traffic control, automotive radars, defence and security, as well as other radar uses, related to medical, industrial, system diagnostic applications. Special attention will be given to novel applications such as multi-static radar systems, passive radar, short range radar, bio-medical imaging, UAV radars and millimetre wave technology.

Conference Highlights

The conference is the ideal event to keep up to date with the latest achievements in the field of radar and to interact with international experts from industry and academia. The conference brings together researchers and radar developers from all over the world to stimulate development of new products and services. International experts will present keynote papers on topics of current importance and on the latest advances. Tailored short courses and workshops will complement the programme.

EuMA Radar Prize

The EuMA Radar Prize is awarded by the EuRAD Technical Programme Committee and the EuMW Steering Committee to the author(s) of the paper presenting the most significant advance in radar state of-theart. The value of the EuMA Radar Prize is € 3,000. Eligible candidates for the EuMA Radar Prize are the author(s) of a paper accepted for inclusion in the programme of EuRAD, published in the Conference Proceedings and presented during the conference in either an oral or poster session. The winning paper will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Microwave & Wireless Technologies.

EuRAD Young Engineers Prize

The EuRAD Technical Programme Committee and the EuMW Steering Committee will award a EURAD Young Engineers Prize of € 2,000 to young engineers or researchers who have presented an outstanding contribution at the EuRAD. To be eligible, candidates must (1) be under 30 years of age at date of award, (2) be the first author of the paper, and (3) be the contribution presenter in an oral or a poster session. The first author must have a major contribution in the work reported which must be described in an electronic statement signed by all authors of the paper (effectively co-authors state that their contribution was merely advisory). This statement has to include the date of birth of the first author and must be submitted together with the original submission. The number of co-authors of the paper is not limited. The winning paper will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Microwave & Wireless Technologies.

Reduced Fees and Special Grants

Reduced registration fees are offered for students as well as senior persons aged 65 years or more. The European Microwave Association will also provide up to 5 student grants of € 500 each which include free EuRAD registration. Applicants for a student grant must be aged 30 or younger at the time of the European Microwave Week, be a full time student (i.e., an undergraduate or a PhD student), and they will be asked to provide a supervisor’s written confirmation of their current student status. The European Microwave Association will also provide a number of grants for delegates coming from the Newly Independent States, from Russia and from low-income countries. The value of the grant is € 500 and entitles the grantee to free EuRAD registration. Applications should be sent to the EuMW General Chairman by May 27th, 2016.
