The 19th European Radar Conference (EuRAD 2022) will be held from the 28th to the 30th of September 2022 in Milan, Italy, in the framework of the European Microwave Week 2022. This Radar Conference is the major European event for the present status and the future trends in the field of radar research, technology, system design and applications. The EuRAD conference will bring together a global network of researchers, practitioners and institutes working on topics related to the following four areas of focus.

The Radar Sub-systems and Phenomenology topic comprises radar electromagnetic phenomenology (including radar cross section) modelling and characterisation, antenna design (simulation and measurements) including innovations and methods in antenna characterisation, phased arrays, fully digital arrays, transceiver technologies as well as reconfigurable frontends and sub-systems.

The Radar Techniques topic aims to attract innovative research contributions on digital beamforming and other multiantenna techniques (including MIMO, multi-static and networked), signal processing techniques for detection and estimation, localisation and tracking, imaging, information extraction, target classification and compressive sensing. This incorporates also, for example, interferometry, polarimetry, tomography etc.. Contributions on sensor management, cognitive techniques and waveform diversity as well as on spectrum sharing and joint radar and communication are also included. Submissions are also expected in the use of machine learning, deep learning and adaptive techniques for radar.

The Radar Architecture and Systems topic incorporates the latest 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, incorporated in, for example, remotely piloted aircraft, multisensor and multi-functional systems, UWB systems, millimetrewave and THz systems and quantum radar. New tools for radar simulation and system performance modelling, model-based design, as well as new trends in cognitive, bio-inspired, lowcost and software defined radars are encompassed.

The Radar Applications topic encompasses various domains such as automotive and transportation radars, defence, sense and avoid radar for UAVs and security applications, geoscience, weather and environmental remote sensing (including subsurface and ground penetrating radar), as well as other radar uses, related to industrial, medical/biological, and sensing/diagnostic applications. A transversal focus is also expected on the reemerging areas of electronic surveillance and countermeasures for radar applications in relation to the growth of the internetof- things. Contributions on radar systems and missions for space exploration are also welcome. Any other new emerging radar application is also included.

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 designers and developers from all over the world to stimulate development of new trends, 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 best paper at the 19th European Radar Conference. The value of the EuMA Radar Prize is €3,000. An extended version of the winning paper will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies.

EuRAD Young Engineer Prize 

The EuRAD Technical Programme Committee and the EuMW Steering Committee will award a EuRAD Young Engineer Prize of €2,000 to young engineers or researchers who have presented an outstanding contribution at the European Radar Conference. 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 made a major contribution to 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). Further rules are similar to EuMC and EuMIC.

Reduced Fees and Special Grants

Reduced registration fees are offered for students as well as senior persons aged 65 years or more and for military personnel (with proof of affiliation). The European Microwave Association will also provide up to five student grants of €750 and 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 several grants for delegates coming from low income countries. The value of the grant is €750 in addition to a free EuRAD registration. Applications should be sent to the EuMW 2022 Grants Chair by emailing by 20 June 2022.
