Welcome to SDRA-2016!
Saturday June 25, 2016
The SDRA-2015 was a great success, with 14 fantastic talks, attracting a great number of listeners as well as speakers from all over the world. For this reason we at Deutscher Amateur Radio Club e.V. decided that it is clear to continue to host a conference on the modern topic of Software Defined Radio. The SDRA-2016 will be, as its predecessor SDRA-2015, a sub-conference to the renowned main venue, HAMRADIO at Friedrichshafen, with 18000 visitors. As it has become clear in many GNURadio and other community discussions that around 80% of the SDR community holds an Amateur Radio license, the real audience is more likely to be found at a major venue for radio enthusiasts.
The Software Defined Radio Academy has the following goals:
- Support and drive institutional and personal research around Software Defined Radio
- Establish a conference where SDR developers can meet
- Attract Radio Amateurs and show paths into SDR
- Define a scientific format for talks, presentations and posters
- Define a publication platform together with the DARC publishing house
- Demonstrate modern radio technology to the interested public audience
The SDRA implements the procedures and the routine of a major scientific conference. Our publishing house (DARC Verlag GmbH) has agreed to take care of the publication of articles on most recent research. Depending on the amount of papers, we will create an independent proceedings document, or as alternative include papers in publications of other major Amateur Radio conferences. We also work with a Senior Programme Committee of three Scientists (professors) from German universities who are also Radio Amateurs.
Though we do not just want to address scientists, but the general Amateur Radio public. We welcome all contributions, tutorials, beginners' guides to SDR and the like. Even if you've never considered Software Defined Radio, we want to attract you as a listener with insightful information.
If you have conducted own research and experiments, please consider our Call For Papers:
If you think that your research is worth demonstrating to an interested audience, feel free to contact us! We will be happy to help you with your publication. We are also happy about introductory talks that can help newbies to start into this thrilling and fascinating field of technology:
