Rome, Tuesday 14th May 2019

It is with great regret that I have to inform you that the 10th edition of the International Workshop on Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar (IWAGPR 2019) cannot be held this July in Rome, as it was originally planned. This was not an easy decision but had to be made as serious personal reasons and unavoidable circumstances do not allow me to devote anymore the necessary time and effort for organising this event. I would like to apologise for the lateness of this notice, which was due to ongoing efforts to try and find a way to keep IWAGPR 2019 on track for taking place in Rome. I am very sorry for any inconvenience caused and unfulfilled expectations.

A constructive solution, however, to avoid the complete cancelation of the event, has been found in collaboration with the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) who have agreed to host IWAGPR 2019 as a parallel conference under the annual Near Surface Geoscience event (NSG 2019), taking place in the Hague, The Netherlands, from the 8th to the 12th of September 2019. Preparations for this transition are under way and very soon all Authors who have submitted papers for IWAGPR 2019 will be notified about the opportunity to have their papers presented during this year’s NSG 2019. Information will be available from the NSG 2019 website (, as well.

Best wishes,
