November: SA Radar Conf 2019

The 2019 SARIG Radar Conference will focus on the theme of "Radar in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)".

The conference will feature presentations from various South African academic and industry leaders on cutting edge radar technologies, the future of radar, and the application of alternative research fields to the realms of radar and defence. SARIG will be covering the cost of the conference for all attendees, and we encourage anyone with an interest in radar and cutting edge technologies to attend this event.

April 2020: IEEE Radar Conference

In 2020, the IEEE International Radar Conference returns to Washington DC, an area rich in radar history. Almost 100 years ago, Albert Taylor and Leo Young observed that ships in the Potomac River interfered with their communications signals. They proposed that this phenomenon be used to detect ships, and a few years later, demonstrated the detection of aircraft. Please join us to meet and share the latest advances in radar across an expanding range of applications and be inspired by the creativity of those following in Taylor and Young’s footsteps. The Washington DC area is steeped in both history and innovation and possesses world-class cultural attractions and an efficient public transport system.

Draft Paper Submission: 8 November 2019

September 2020: IEEE Radar Conference

It is our great pleasure to announce the forthcoming 2020 IEEE Radar Conference that will take place in Florence from 21 September to 25 September 2020. It was at places only few kilometers away from the conference location that our scientist and engineer forefathers Galileo Galilei and Leonardo da Vinci, respectively, made their groundbreaking discoveries. We are excited to organize the conference for the second time ever in Italy, after the successful edition in Rome in 2008, and in those places where Renaissance opened paths to the birth of modern science, and a new consideration of the role of mankind altogether. This is particularly true in these days that witness an important growth of the many fields of application of radar techniques, in addition to the traditional ones. We do hope many of you will join us in Florence to attend this event. - Fulvio Gini and Maria Greco
