This Special Session will be an international forum of discussion where scientists will exchange and share experience on GPR, present advancements of their research activities and recent case studies, and identify challenges and opportunities for the GPR technique in archaeology and cultural-heritage management. The deadline for abstract submission is 30 June 2017. Contributions on the following topics are welcome:
There are several ways to be involved in a COST Action. For general information on how to participate, please refer to the relevant page on the COST website.
By joining the COST Action TU1208, you will have the possibility to participate to the networking activities and scientific projects carried out within the Action. You will meet several scientists working on GPR, establish new cooperations and have the possibility to build the critical mass for follow up activities in the EU Framework Programme Horizon2020 or other competitive international programmes.
The COST Action TU1208 is active through a range of networking tools: meetings, workshops, conferences, training schools, short-term scientific missions, dissemination activities. The Action is a wide bottom-up interdisciplinary science and technology network, open to researchers from universities, public and private research institutions, as well as to NGOs, industry and SMEs.
For further information or to join TU1208 scientific activities, please take contact with the Action Chair, Dr. Lara Pajewski.
Welcome on our website!
The COST Action TU1208 started on 4 April 2013 and is ending on 3 October 2017. The website will continue being updated and enriched after the end of the Action. If you wish to receive our updates via email, please fill in the contact form.
The main objective of TU1208 is to exchange and increase scientific-technical knowledge and experience of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) techniques in civil engineering, whilst promoting a wider and more effective use of this safe and non-destructive method in the monitoring of structures.
Our research activities include all aspects of the GPR technology and methodology: development and testing of radar systems and antennas; design and application of surveying procedures for the inspection of natural and manmade structures, in civil and environmental engineering, cultural heritage and beyond; integration of GPR with complementary non-destructive testing methods; development of advanced electromagnetic modelling, inversion and data-processing techniques for radargram analysis and interpretation.
TU1208 has been recognised among the running Actions as a COST Success Story and has been praised with the following statement: TU1208 "Civil engineering applications of Ground Penetrating Radar" (Chair: Lara Pajewski, Roma Tre University, IT) - This interdisciplinary Action represents a milestone in GPR research, being the first European network ever existed in this field, in line with the spirit and goals of the ERA. In June 2014, it co-organised the 15th International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar, the premier forum on GPR" ("The Cities of Tomorrow: The Challenges of Horizon 2020," September 17-19, 2014, Torino, IT - A COST strategic workshop on the development and needs of the European cities). For more information on the event, please visit this page.
The Action published several international books, journal special issues, book chapters, journal papers and conference papers. For a complete list of publications and relevant statistics, please visit this page. In the following, instead, you will find some information about two books published by the Action with Springer and with the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers.
