Welcome to SDRA-2018!
Friday Jan 19, 2018
All three SDRA events in the past years were a great success, with continously growing numbers of audience. This is a clear indicator that the SDRA is not only here to stay, but here to grow. It has also become clear that SDR technology will be the key driver of radio technology, and the SDRA is the focus event in Amateur Radio in Europe.
So there will also be a SDRA conference again in 2018, yet at a slightly different point in time, beginning of June (June 2nd), but also as in the past as part of the HAMRADIO Friedrichshafen fair.
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:
