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:
