Radar 2009 : IEEE Radar Conference
Call For Papers
Technical Chair, Dr. Eastwood Im, and Technical Co-Chair, Dr. Trung Nguyen, invite you to participate in RadarCon09's exploration of Radar: From Science to Systems by submitting one or more papers in the following topical areas:
The nexus of radar measurements and Earth and planetary science, including earthquakes, volcanology, clouds, precipitation, severe storms, land and ocean topography, ocean eddies and salinity, glaciology, sea ice, snow cover, soil moisture, rainfall, ground water, vegetation, biomass, and subsurface process studies.
Advanced concepts and implementations in terrestrial, shipborne, airborne, ground-based and spaceborne radar, imaging radar, high resolution SAR, air traffic control, automotive and weather radar, multifunction airborne tactical and surveillance technology, radar control and scheduling, radar system reliability, and counter-terrorism, counterdrug and law enforcement applications.
Radar Signal & Data Processing
Innovative techniques for digital beamforming, array processing, STAP, superresolution, detection and estimation techniques, target discrimination/classification/ID/recognition, tracking, data association, sensor fusion, sidelobe control, false alarm mitigation, multipath processing, and improved electronic protection (EP) techniques.
Component & Subsystem Development
State-of-the-art signal processing components, materials (including chiral, meta-materials, and others), manufacturing techniques and packaging, distributed processing architectures, COTS processors and commercial components, SiC and GaN transistors, wideband high dynamic range A/D converters, DDS waveform generators and modulators, efficient low-cost T/R modules, and low cost digital receivers.
Creative and modern multibeam antenna architectures, conformal arrays, subarraying techniques, beam forming technology, optical manifolding, low sidelobe antenna designs, ultrawideband, wideband/multifrequency, and polarization-diverse antenna designs.
Emerging techniques including bistatic radar, multistatic radar and radar networking, polarimetric radar, foliage penetrating radar, ultrawideband radar, interferometric SAR, MEMS applications, fiber optic remoting and photonics, ground penetrating radar, and laser radar.
Radar environmental and target issues including propagation and scattering phenomenology, science remote sensing, target and clutter measurement and modeling, chaff behavior and multipath, terrain and building scattered interference, and spatial and temporal scattering statistics.
RadarCon09â??s Technical Program will include:
Technical Oral Sessions: Plenary session with keynote speaker and invited overview presentations. Focused sessions including invited and accepted papers.
Technical Poster Sessions: Focused sessions with informal stand-up presentations. Question-and-answer interaction with conference attendees.
Student Sessions: Poster session similar to technical poster sessions. Best student paper award and opportunity for presentation. See Student Programs for information on separate Student Design Competition opportunity.
Summary Paper Requirements
Authors must submit a 3-4 page summary paper, including figures. Electronic submission is required in Microsoft Word, PDF, or LaTeX format. Click here to access the online paper submissions portal.
The deadline for submission of summary papers is September 26, 2008.
Authors may indicate paper suitability for a poster format presentation, if desired.
Student papers are strongly encouraged. They must follow the same requirements as above, and must be identified as student papers.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by December 1, 2008.
Instructions and format for the final paper are provided on the Submissions Guide page of this web site.
Completed electronic papers (up to 6 pages inclusive of text, figures, and tables) will be required by February 27, 2009.
Authors are advised that this conference is an open forum including worldwide attendance.
It is the responsibility of submitters to ensure their papers have received applicable organizational and governmental clearance, as required, for release of their work. Authors must allow sufficient time to receive approvals for release.
International authors should allow extra time for visit visa requests and should initiate the visa process immediately after notification of paper acceptance.
