Second European GNU Radio days: call for contribution 

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 as a complement to the american GRCon, and welcomes participants from all countries and continents enjoying developing with GNU Radio. Contributions are sought in English as oral presentation/demo/tutorial.

The workshop will take place on the 17th and 18th June, 2019, at the ENSMM engineering school facilities, Besancon - France. The book of abstracts summarizes the topics that will be addressed during the 15-minute long presentations as organized in the program.

Registration is open: participating to the conference is free of charge, but registration is mandatory before May 1st to help organize the meeting

Since the OscillatorIMP Digital CPU-FPGA co-design framework available here has been completed on time and is applicable to the PlutoSDR as described here, we consider an additional 1-day tutorial session on these Zynq CPU-FPGA co-design frameworks to be held June 19th following the GNU Radio Days. The tutorial is now fully booked, please avoid registering or at least enquire for available space before postponing your departure from Besancon. For more information or meeting us online, join the #oscimp channel on the IRC freenode.net server.

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, including a detailed presentation by Analog Device's designers of the PlutoSDR: please make sure to check their Wiki page if you wish to bring your own computer to the laboratory 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)
