The GRCon23 Organizer team is composed entirely of volunteers who spend countless hours taking care of the details to make the conference happen smoothly. Without them, GRCon would not happen at all!
Samantha is a wireless networking engineer and long time GNU Radio user. She is a member of the GNU Radio General Assembly and has been helping to organize GRCon for the past few years (and attending them for even longer).
Derek is President of GNU Radio and a Principal Investigator at the SETI Institute, acting as liason between the organizations. He's also persuing a PhD in high efficiency RF amplifier design at Cardiff University. He has been using and contributing to GNU Radio since 2013.
Josh is a Senior Research Scientist at Peraton Labs in Red Bank, NJ, and is also heavily involved with the GR 4.0 runtime re-architecture.
Barry is a computer programmer, amateur radio operator (KV4FV), and devotes most of his time to the GNU Radio project. He led a large effort related to GNU Radio's documentation, filling out a large fraction of the "block doc" pages on the wiki, which are heavily used by GR users.
Marc is a Senior Software Engineer at Microsoft in the Azure Spectrum Technologies group, and teaches part time as an Adjunct Professor at University of Maryland in CS. Marc, along with Derek and Martin, form the Board of GNU Radio.
Andrej is a member of the GNU Radio General Assembly and Infrastructure maintainer for the GNU Radio project. For GRCon the IT services for registration, ticketing, and publishing are set up and run with his help. He is pursuing a Dr.-Ing. at the Communications Engineering Lab of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. His research focuses on applying machine learning to the optimization of communication systems, particularly the physical layer.
Marcus has stuck around the project for a while now, has been maintainer, soul of the mailing list and supplier of LaTeX explanations in various emails. Being raised in a thoroughly GNU Radio-friendly lab, he's a freelancing SDR developer, software consultant, and all-around nerd-of-all-trades.
Toby is the CTO at Red Wire Technologies where he uses GNU Radio regularly, especially in an embedded environment. He has been using and contributing to GNU Radio since 2008.
Neel is a Principal SDR Engineer and Group Manager at National Instruments (NI) in Austin, Texas, USA, and is an alumnus of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and Northeastern University (NEU). He has been involved with the GNU Radio software and the GNU Radio Conference since 2014.
The SETI Institute is our co-organizer for GRCon. They've managed all of the finances for GRCon since 2020 in addition to providing support for contracts, communication, swag, and future planning.
The Center for Wireless Information Systems and Computational Architectures at Arizona State University are the local partners for the GNU Radio Conference and have provided significant assistance in the planning and running of the event.
