Announcing GNU Radio Conference 2015

Greetings,

We are happy and excited to finally announce GNU Radio Conference 2015!
GRCon15 is the next installment of the fastest growing SDR-focused
conference in the world. GRCon is becoming the go-to event for for
beginners, advanced users, and core developers to exchange ideas and
information related to SDR.

Here are some brief details:

Dates & Location

There are several other conferences occurring in September this year.
To
avoid conflicts with those, we’ve decided to hold the conference on
August
24-28
, a bit earlier than last year.

While it has taken us some time to settle on a venue that is a good
match
for this event, it was time well spent and we are very excited about the
result. The conference will be held at the Center for Strategic &
International Studies
http://csis.org/files/publication/131205_external_conferencing_brochure_web.pdf
in Washington DC. Counting the areas designated for vendor booths,
demos,
and hands-on-tutorials, the total event space is ~3 times larger than
the
venue used for GRCon14. This modern venue gives us plenty of room for
growth and comfort, is conveniently accessible by DC Metro, and is
located
near many hotels and notable landmarks.

We expect about 250 attendees this year.

The Program

This conference is focused on practical deployment of SDR, with a heavy
focus on professional interaction and exchange. Here’s a rough overview
of
what we are planning:

An agenda packed with sessions on exciting & unique applications, new
SDR hardware, and tutorials on new features

Several hands-on tutorials from beginner level through advanced
(e.g.,
FPGA targeting)

Multiple networking events

Working groups and hackerspaces

Vendor booths, demos, and more…

Call for Presentations and Tutorials

May 8, 2015.

Call for Sponsors

success
and drive of this community. If you are in the business of
software-defined radio, do not miss out on this great opportunity to

We wish to thank folks who have already submitted an abstract for a
presentation, tutorial, or poster to EasyChair <
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=grcon15 >. We realized that some
useful links to this website were missing until about a week ago, so
we’re extending the deadline by a week to give everyone who has just
recently heard about GRCon15 – and wants to show off their latest work
with GNU Radio and SDR via a presentation, tutorial, or poster – time
to work up an abstract and get it submitted. We require just an
abstract, no paper. You will need to create an account on EasyChair,
which takes only a few minutes. The submission period will now close at
the end of day on Friday, May 15, 2015.

Best Regards,
