Due to the Corona Pandemic, we are shifting the core of the SDRA into the internet. We will hold the conference as a video conference with all participants contributing from home, though united in a video room.
We cannot tell by now whether the HAMRADIO will take place, but we must be prepared that it will be called off. For this case we will still be operational. Should the HAMRADIO take place though, we will use the projector to let the local audience participate.
Nevertheless we assume videoconferences and participation per video stream will play a big role in the future. This way we will be able to call in spreakers from all around the world. It will pay off already this year that we have succeeded to gather nearly 2000 subscribers in our Youtube channel.
As we are currently still open for submissions, please feel welcome to submit your topic. You won't need to jump on a plane, you can talk to an audience of a thousand and more listeners from your home.

Welcome to SDRA-2020!
Saturday, Sept 21, 2019
The past years has seen a lot of cool developments. We have celebrated the 5th anniversary, we had the honor to receive Nobel Price laureate Prof. Dr. Joe Taylor K1JT as a key speaker. And most notably, we have seen that there is no major vendor out there who is not using SDR as a key technology. Also GNURadio is playing an ever growing role in SDR education, which is why we will set an ever stronger focus on GNURadio. And the new Amateur Radio satellite QO-100 has become a fantastic playground for SDR enthusiasts, allowing a wide spectrum of experiments with radio partners all around the world.
The 6th SDRA will take place on June 27 2020 and it will be a central part of the famous HAMRADIO fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany. We will open the stage for all enthusiasts, experts and professionals in Software Defined Radio, be them from academia, community or industry. For audience who cannot attend in person, we will provide a live video stream on our Youtube channel.
The Software Defined Radio Academy has the following goals:
- Support and drive institutional and personal research around Software Defined Radio
- Establish a conference where SDR developers can meet
- Attract Radio Amateurs and show paths into SDR
- Define a scientific format for talks, presentations and posters
- Define a publication platform together with the DARC publishing house
- Demonstrate modern radio technology to the interested public audience
The SDRA implements the procedures and the routine of a major scientific conference. Our publishing house (DARC Verlag GmbH) has agreed to take care of the publication of articles on most recent research. Depending on the amount of papers, we will create an independent proceedings document, or as alternative include papers in publications of other major Amateur Radio conferences. We also work with a Senior Programme Committee of three Scientists (professors) from German universities who are also Radio Amateurs.
Though we do not just want to address scientists, but the general Amateur Radio public. We welcome all contributions, tutorials, beginners' guides to SDR and the like. Even if you've never considered Software Defined Radio, we want to attract you as a listener with insightful information.
If you have conducted own research and experiments, please consider our Call For Papers:
If you think that your research is worth demonstrating to an interested audience, feel free to contact us! We will be happy to help you with your publication. We are also happy about introductory talks that can help newbies to start into this thrilling and fascinating field of technology:
