The final conference of the COST Action TU1208 is hosted by the National Institute of Telecommunications in Warsaw, Poland. The conference will bring together scientists, engineers and industry delegates from all over Europe and beyond, working in all GPR areas. Topics of the conference are:

  • novel developments of GPR systems and antennas (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 1)
  • innovative procedures for testing the performance of GPR systems (outcome of TU1208 Working Group 1)
  • safety issues in GPR prospecting (outcome of TU1208 Working Groups 1 and 2)
  • guidelines for GPR inspection of roads and concrete structures (bridges, tunnels, building floors), and for GPR detection and localization of utilities and voids in urban areas (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 2)
  • advanced civil-engineering case studies where GPR was used for investigating roads, bridges, tunnels, railways, airports, buildings, concrete and wood structures, and for detecting utilities and cavities (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 2)
  • free software tools for electromagnetic modelling of GPR (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 3)
  • free software tools for the processing of GPR radargrams (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 3)
  • innovative forward- and inverse-scattering, imaging and data-processing methods for GPR (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 3)
  • open database of radargrams (outcome of TU1208 Working Groups 2 and 3)
  • advanced case studies where GPR was used for archaeological prospection and cultural-heritage diagnostics (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 4)
  • advanced case studies where GPR was integrated with complementary non-destructive testing methods (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 4)
  • advanced case studies where GPR was applied in further areas (outcomes of TU1208 Working Group 4)
  • results of TU1208 Short-Term Scientific Missions
  • results of the TU1208 GPR Road Show and roundtable with industry delegates
  • results of the TU1208 training activities and presentation of the TU1208 Education Pack
