10th International Workshop on Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar

IWAGPR 2019 is the 10th edition of the biennial series of the International Workshop on Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar. Its aim is to bring together scientists, engineers, industrial delegates and end-users working in all GPR areas, ranging from fundamental electromagnetics to the numerous fields of applications. The workshop will provide a supportive framework for (1) providing updates on ongoing research activities and results, (2) fruitful discussions and development of new ideas, (3) community-building through the identification of skill sets and collaboration opportunities, (4) the exposure of early-career investigators to the GPR research community, (5) a diverse exhibition where companies and associations will have the opportunity to present and showcase instrumentation, software, services and activities. 

The scientific programme of the event will have an innovative structure to create a collaborative atmosphere and facilitate the exchange of ideas. There will be scientific sessions, round tables and keynote talks.

Great opportunities for discussions and the foundation of future collaborations will be facilitated by keynote talks, as well as oral and poster sessions enabling the participants to present and discuss cutting edge developments in the field of ground penetrating radar, placed in a broader context of related geophysical and geoscience work presented during the Near Surface Geoscience Conferences and Exhibition 2019 and in the other three conferences hosted at the same time. 

The workshop has grown from 100 participants from 22 countries in 2013 to 157 participants from 26 countries in 2017.  Having the workshop run in parallel with three other conferences provides a unique opportunity for finding new synergies with other near surface disciplines, involving scientists and engineers from both the private and public sectors.

We invite you to present your work on GPR and not to miss this unique opportunity! We look forward to seeing you in The Hague!

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Novel developments in GPR systems, antennas and observation modalities;
  • Advanced data and image processing algorithms;
  • Forward modelling techniques and inversion methodologies;
  • Archaeology and cultural heritage;
  • Engineering and Geotechnical applications: e.g. utility detection, road and pavement inspection, structural evaluation, NDT, tunnelling and mining;
  • Geological applications: e.g. geology, sedimentology, hydrogeophysics, soil contamination, glaciology, and planetary exploration;
  • Security applications, unexploded ordnance and landmine detection.
