Call for Papers: 2015 IEEE Radar Conference

20 Feb 2015 - 10:30

The Call for Papers for the upcoming 2015 IEEE Radar Conference (its motto – “Out of Africa – Always something new”) was recently sent out (see PDF). The conference is being held at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg from 27 to 30 October 2015.

The deadline for submitting an Extended Abstract of least four (4) pages including figures is 20 April 2015 (see below for further information).


“The role of radar is continuously evolving. New and emerging threats such as piracy, poaching and asymmetric warfare dictate that radars need to develop to address these challenges in intelligent ways. Coupled with a dynamic operational environment with increasingly complex clutter is the need for radar to constantly improve to meet the demands of asymmetric threats and civilian applications, such as air traffic management and border surveillance. The aim of this conference is to focus on innovations in radar that rise to these challenges.

The conference is held in Johannesburg, South Africa: the city of gold, gateway to Africa, once home to Nelson Mandela and also to the JB1 radar – the first radar developed in South Africa! Connected to many cities in US, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America via a single flight, Johannesburg, a modern African city, offers an African setting that allows conference goers the option to explore the treasures that South Africa has to offer! A weekend before or after the conference spent at one of the incredible national parks or exploring the riches of the African culture is sure to leave you longing to return!”

B. Civilian Applications E. Multisite and Multi-channel Systems K. Improvements in Components
C. Remote Sensing F. Waveform Diversity L. Antennas
G. Radar Systems M. Radar Systems Architectures
H. Emerging Techniques
I. Threats and Countermeasures

Call for Special Sessions Almost Closed!

The conference would like to invite experts from around the globe to propose special sessions that fit within the theme of the conference. These sessions will be reviewed and published as normal papers, but will ensure that topics that are of interest to the expert community are addressed. If you are interested in submitting a special session proposal, please contact Willie Nel (wajnel at or Daniel O’Hagan (danieloha at – proposals for special sessions will have to be submitted before 28 February 2015 and requires a motivation template to be completed.

Interested in Exhibiting at the Conference?

The conference will provide opportunity to interact with researchers, developers and users in the field of radar from around the globe. If you are interested in exhibiting your products or technology at the conference, please contact Anthony Green (AnthonyG at
