The 2015 IEEE Radar Conference – its theme “Out of Africa – always something new” – will be taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg from 27 to 30 October 2015.
“Both developing and developed nations have growing interest in how radar can assist in the monitoring of large areas for diverse purposes such as border protection, prevention of human trafficking, wildlife preservation, facility protection, and so on. In 2014, South Africa celebrated 75 years of indigenous radar research, development and production.
The first International South African Radar Conference will bring together colleagues from all over the world, and all corners of the radar enterprise, to share, learn, and foster our global community.
The 2015 South African Radar Conference will be hosted in the strategically located Sandton International Convention Centre, Johannesburg. The conference venue is conveniently located near Johannesburg’s Oliver Tambo International Airport, with a frequent 15 minute high speed train connection to the venue and associated hotels. Johannesburg is a hub with direct air links to the USA (Atlanta, JFK, Washington), Europe (most capital cities), China, Japan, Australia. Be sure to check out all of the activities and sightseeing activities being coordinated on behalf of conference attendees and their companions in one of Africa’s most sophisticated cities, only hours away from excellent wildlife parks.
The IET Transactions on Radar Sonar and Navigation will invite submissions of expanded papers from this conference for a special issue.”
