This event is funded by UCL, supported by the UCL IEEE Student Society and sponsored/co-hosted by the IEEE UK and Ireland Education Society Chapter. We thank Paul McKenna and Sharon Edwards for their help and support with local arrangements.

Join us for a one-day seminar series in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL, to learn more about the engineering of terrestrial and planetary radars and some exciting results of research from radar sounding – in Antarctica, Greenland and for the icy moons of Jupiter.

We welcome our guest main speaker Dr Dustin Schroeder from Stanford University to deliver a set of invited talks on this fascinating subject area. This is complemented with keynote presentations (tbc) by scholars working in this field of research from the universities of Bristol, Cardiff, Newcastle and Edinburgh. An interactive panel discussion, posters and networking session concludes the event.

All students and staff are warmly invited, both from within UCL and externally. Space is limited so registration is mandatory.
