EuRAD 2010 : European Radar Conference
Call For Papers
European Radar Conference 2010 Conference
Paris, September 30 - October 1, 2010
The 7th European Radar Conference (EuRAD 2010) will be held from September 30 - October 1, 2010 in Paris, France, in the frame of the European Microwave Week 2010. This Radar Conference is the major European forum for the present status and the future trends in the fi eld of radar technology, system design, and applications.
In the Radar Sub-systems area, the conference focuses on antenna design, modelling and measurements, active phased arrays and reconfi gurable radar front-ends.
The Radar Wave scattering and signal processing topic comprises digital beam-forming, data processing for target tracking, localisation, for high resolution and imaging. The area of radar wave scattering and signal processing also considers waveform diversity, clutter and propagation effects, measurement and system performance modelling.
Radar architecture and systems addresses as well over-thehorizon, imaging and CW radars as emerging technologies like ultra wide band, mulit-sensors, multifunctional systems, networks and MIMO radars. Typical applications include remote sensing surveillance radar, defence and security, environmental remote sensing (including weather radar and SAR systems) and medical imaging.
In addition to scientifi c papers, typically from academia and research institutes, contributions are encouraged on industrial developments, covering the various applicative fi elds such as environmental, traffi c control, automotive, homeland security and defence.
The presenters of posters, according to their preference, will be offered a time slot in an Interactive Posters Session (IPS). This interactive poster session will be held jointly with EuMC during a separate timeslot without EuMC and EuRAD oral sessions. This should optimise poster session attendance, and may be particularly attractive to industrial experts providing presentations, as during IPS the authors can present real-time operation of developed hardware or software or demonstrate movies (or slideshows) showing operation of real systems. Desks/tables and 220V electric power will be provided. This IPS will be combined with the regular EuMC-EuRAD joint poster session.

The conference is the ideal event to keep up to date with the latest achievements in the fi eld and interact with international experts from industry and academia, bringing together researchers and radar developers from all over the world to stimulate development of new products and services. International experts will present keynote papers on topics of current importance and on the latest advances. Tailored Short Courses and Workshops will complement the programme.
EuMA Radar Prize
The EuMA Radar Prize is awarded annually to the author(s) who submitted and presented the paper that best advances the state-of-the-art in radar at the European Radar Conference, held during European Microwave Week, in the opinion of the EuRAD Technical Programme Committee and the EuMW Steering Committee. The value of the EuMA Radar Prize, sponsored by Raytheon, is € 3,000.
Eligible candidates for the EuMA Radar Prize are the author(s) of a paper accepted for inclusion in the programme of EuRAD, published in the Conference Proceedings and presented during the conference in either an oral or poster session.
EuRAD Young Engineers Prize
The EuRAD Technical Programme Committee and the EuMW Steering Committee will award the Young Engineer Prize of € 2,000 to a young engineer or researcher who has presented an outstanding paper at the EuRAD conference. To be eligible candidates must be (1) aged 30 or younger at the date of the award, (2) the fi rst author of the paper, (3) the presenter of either an oral or poster session. The number of co-authors should not exceed three. Applicants must state the purpose to which the prize will be put. The successful applicant may use part of the prize to fund attendance at the following year’s European Radar conference. The EuRAD Young Engineer Prize is sponsored by Raytheon.
Reduced Fees and Special Grants
Reduced fees are implemented for students as well as senior persons aged 65 years or more. The European Microwave Association will also provide up to 10 student grants consisting of € 500. Applications should be sent to the EuMC Chair by May 16, 2010. The European Microwave Association will also provide a number of grants for delegates coming from Newly Independant States, Russia and from low-income countries. The value of the grant is € 500 and a reduced registration fee for the EuMC. Applications should be sent to the EuMC Chair by May 16, 2010.
