Third European GNU Radio days 2021: call for contribution 

The event is scheduled from 24 to 26 June 2021. It will be twinned with the SDRA 2021 conference (Saturday June 26). Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the event will be held in virtual format.

It is our pleasure to announce the third meeting centered around the GNU Radio framework held in France (Poitiers).  This workshop targets French and European GNU Radio users and developers as a complement to the american GRCon, and welcomes participants from all countries and continents enjoying developing with GNU Radio. Contributions are sought in English as oral presentation/demo/tutorial. Submissions are now open. Last year's abstracts have been gathered in the book of abstracts of the 2019 edition of the European GNU Radio Days conference. Videos of past presentations and tutorials are online on YouTube.

To submit a contribution using the GRCon template, select Registration on the left menu and then Submissions. The expected abstract length is at least 2 pages with a maximum of 8. The accepted manuscripts will be uploaded on Warning: submitting a contribution does not mean registering to the conference, which must be done separately. A video of the oral presentation will be expected and we aim at leaving enough time for live interactions of the speaker with the audience after the talk.

Registration is open: participating to the conference is free of charge. A contest aimed a decoding an unkown signal can be tackled by subscribers for winning two B205mini SDR, courtesy of NI, by reaching the Challenge menu on the left.

GNU Radio is an increasingly popular framework for Software Defined Radio components and Digital Signal Processing prototyping. As such our goals are as follows:

  • Bring together active French and European GNU Radio users, coming from a scientific, technical, amateur or hacker background
  • Foster interaction between GNU Radio users
  • Share knowledge about GNU Radio development through tutorials, seminars and demos
  • Bridge the gap between technical/engineering and scientific/research points of view on topics related to applied research with GNU Radio. Such topics include:
    • Software Defined Radio, radio prototyping,
    • RF design,
    • RADAR design
    • Global Navigation Satelite Systems (GNSS) and space communications
    • Signal processing in embedded systems,
    • GNU Radio development environment,
    • New platforms

GNU Radio users and developers are invited to present their experiments and activities. The first day (24th of June) will be devoted to oral presentations, posters and demonstrations. The second day (25th of June) will be dedicated to tutorials and hands-on sessions. June 26th is a joint presentation with SDRA (German ham conference).

Contributions might for instance address the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Cognitive Radio, Digital Communication and Agile Spectrum Sharing
  • RADAR systems and specifically passive radar
  • Front-end analog characterization
  • Design of Signal Processing algorithms as GNU Radio blocks
  • Identification and decoding of signals, including satellite communication systems
  • Security aspects of Radiocommunications
  • Coupling GNU Radio to Soc FPGA
  • Various physical measurements (GNSS, Radioastronomy)
