We are happy and excited to finally announce GNU Radio Conference 2015! GRCon15 is the next installment of the fastest growing SDR-focused conference in the world. GRCon is becoming the go-to event for for beginners, advanced users, and core developers to exchange ideas and information related to SDR.
Here are some brief details:
Dates & Location
There are several other conferences occurring in September this year. To avoid conflicts with those, we’ve decided to hold the conference on August 24-28, a bit earlier than last year.
While it has taken us some time to settle on a venue that is a good match for this event, it was time well spent and we are very excited about the result. The conference will be held at the Center for Strategic & International Studies in Washington DC. Counting the areas designated for vendor booths, demos, and hands-on-tutorials, the total event space is ~3 times larger than the venue used for GRCon14. This modern venue gives us plenty of room for growth and comfort, is conveniently accessible by DC Metro, and is located near many hotels and notable landmarks.
We expect about 250 attendees this year.
This conference is focused on practical deployment of SDR, with a heavy focus on professional interaction and exchange. Here’s a rough overview of what we are planning:
An agenda packed with sessions on exciting & unique applications, new SDR hardware, and tutorials on new features
Several hands-on tutorials from beginner level through advanced (e.g., FPGA targeting)
Multiple networking events
Working groups and hackerspaces
Vendor booths, demos, and more...
Call for Presentations and Tutorials
If you would like to showcase your latest work with GNU Radio and software-defined radio please submit an abstract. This year, we are using EasyChair to facilitate review and selection.

Call for Sponsors
The year-over-year growth of GRCon since 2012 is a testament to the success and drive of this community.
