Call for contributions – Second French GNU Radio Days (17-18 June 2019 – Besançon)

It is our pleasure to announce the second meeting centered around the GNU Radio framework held in France (Besancon).  This workshop targets French and European GNU Radio users and developers. Contributions are sought in English.

The workshop will take place on the 17th and 18th June, 2019, at the ENSMM engineering school facilities, Besancon – France (see last year’s program to get a hint of addressed topics).

Submissions open at

Registration will open January 1st 2019.

GNU Radio is an increasingly popular framework for Software Defined Radio components and Digital Signal Processing prototyping. As such our goals are as follows:

  • Bring together active French and European GNU Radio users, coming from a scientific, technical, amateur or hacker background
  • Foster interaction between GNU Radio users
  • Share knowledge about GNU Radio development through tutorials, seminars and demos
  • Bridge the gap between technical/engineering and scientific/research points of view on topics related to applied research with GNU Radio. Such topics include:
    • Software Defined Radio, radio prototyping,
    • RF design,
    • RADAR design
    • Signal processing in embedded systems,
    • GNU Radio development environment,
    • New platforms

GNU Radio users and developers are invited to present their experiments and activities. The first day (17th of June) will be devoted to oral presentations, posters and demonstrations. The second day (18th of June) will be dedicated to tutorials and hands-on sessions.

Contributions might for instance address the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Cognitive Radio, Digital Communication and Agile Spectrum Sharing
  • RADAR systems and specifically passive radar
  • Front-end analog characterization
  • Design of Signal Processing algorithms as GNU Radio blocks
  • Identification and decoding of signals, including satellite communication systems
  • Security aspects of Radiocommunications
  • Coupling GNU Radio to Soc FPGA
  • Various physical measurements (GNSS, Radioastronomy)
  • … your own favorite field here
