I’d be happy to help! I’m sure classroom-style lectures will be covered
by a few people who have already presented the material a bunch of times
(Tom, Johnathan, etc.). Maybe you could use a bunch of more experienced
GR people in small breakout sessions or to oversee hands-on tutorials,
etc. I’ll be on the lookout for how to get involved.

Thanks for bringing this up. Simply stated, the goal of this New Users
- Increase visibility for GNU Radio, possibly touching new
professional and social circles where GNU Radio isn’t used yet
- Help new users understand what GNU Radio is, and how to use it
In some ways this is a marketing opportunity for GNU Radio. But the
major focus will be on actually teaching people the basics of GNU Radio
through lecture and possibly hands-on tutorials. Hopefully this gives
you an idea of the type of content we’ll have on the first day. It
would seem someone with your experience would get more value out of
contributing the event, rather than sitting through the
It would be great if everyone can help promote this widely. A
single-day event will be more oriented toward a regional audience, but
in an ideal case people from all over will come for the new user day and
stay for the conference. It’s going to be a great show this year!
Aside from the high quality presentations we have every year, there will
be more time for working groups, and a hackerspace filled with enough
hardware for everyone to make some trouble.
More details will be forthcoming. In the meantime, I suppose the call
to action is - help us promote! Registration is open, and seats are

Looking forward to it!
What will generally be the agenda for the New Developers’ Day? Do you
see a role for people who have been hacking at GR for a while, or is it
specifically catered to new users? I’m trying to debate whether to go
the extra day or not, and I bet I’m not the only one who is curious.

Subject: [Discuss-gnuradio] GNU Radio Conference 2014 - Registration is
We just wanted to let everyone know that registration for GNU Radio
Conference 2014 is now open. Here is a quick overview of the event for
those of you who have missed previous announcements:
Date: September 15-19, 2014
Location: The District Architecture Centerhttp://aiadac.com/ in
Washington, DC (USA) - an interesting, modern event facility. Unlike
previous conference values, we will be renting out an entire floor and
will have access to several divided spaces that will allow us to add new
components to the conference.
Attendance: We are expecting to have somewhere between 120 and 150
attendees. A great mix of new users, experienced developers, students,
professors, engineers and researchers. This is the perfect mix for
everyone to share their experiences with GNU Radio, learn more about it,
and help build the future of SDR.
New Components: Hacker/demo space, poster session, ‘New Developers Day’
to attract new/beginning users, an open lounge for people to socialize
and mingle, and daily working groups.
For more information, and links to the registration page, please see the
GNU Radio Conference Websitehttp://www.trondeau.com/grcon14. We will
be posting a preliminary agenda, and more details about the facility
I’d also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the Call
which is open until March 31. We’ve seen some great submissions up to
this point, and look forward to receiving more!
