15th International Conference on

Ground Penetrating Radar: GPR 2014

The 15th International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR 2014), was held in Brussels, Belgium, from June 30 to July 4, 2014.  It was co-organised by COST Action TU1208, along with the Université catholique de Louvain.

The International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar is a  longstanding biennial event, making the premier forum of research and applications in the field of GPR. The 2014 edition brought together 283 high-standard scientists, engineers, industrial delegates and end-users working in all GPR areas, ranging from fundamental electromagnetics to the so various fields of application.  Delegates were from 42 different countries.

Topics covered included: novel developments of GPR systems and antennas, advanced data processing algorithms for improved subsurface imaging, radar data modeling approaches and inversion strategies for quantitative reconstruction of soil and material properties, and finally, data interpretation in a range of fields, including geology and sedimentology, glaciology, environmental and agricultural engeneering (e.g., hydrological monitoring, digital soil mapping, forestry), civil engeneering (e.g., utility detection, monitoring of transport infrastructures, nondestructive testing), archeology and cultural heritage, landmine detection and planetary exploration, among others.

The GPR 2014 venue was the Square Brussels Meeting Centre in Brussels, situated at a few steps from the famous Grand Place.
