Welcome to the European GNU Radio Days '24

The event is proudly hosted at the international accelerator facility FAIR in Darmstadt, Germany's 'City of Science'. It is a seminal event for the Software-Defined-Radio community in Europe. This workshop blends scientific, academic, and industrial applications, fostering collaborations across diverse domains within the GNU Radio community.

This year, we're introducing GNU Radio 4.0, marking a major leap in software-defined radio technology, signal processing, and feedback applications. The workshop aims to bridge the gap between academic research, prototyping, and industrial applications, creating an environment for collaborative development, notably through our GR Block coding party. It's not just a workshop, but a celebration of innovation and community.

What to Expect

The European GNU Radio Days '24 workshop caters to a diverse audience, including seasoned developers, newcomers, and users looking to apply GNU Radio 4.0 to their specific signal-processing or feedback control challenges.

  • Hands-on Tutorials & Guided Block Developments  tailored for both users/non-developers and developers, covering:
    • Common Concepts, General Use, and Applications
    • Real-Time Signal-Processing and Feedback Control through Flow-Graphs
    • An array of of Signal-Processing Challenges, from basic to advanced (including fox-hunts & capture-the-flag events)
  • Developer-Centric Learning: Advanced training on integrating and extending GNU Radio 4.0, applying learned concepts in a practical setting.
    • Introduction to GNU Radio 4.0, how to integrate, and write your own blocks
    • Timing and Synchronisation Integration
    • Contemporary C++ & hardware acceleration (via SIMD & SYCL)
  • 2 Days of Block Coding Party: an immersive coding experience guided by seasoned C++/GR 4.0 trainers, with a ratio of one trainer per 4-8 developers.
  • Networking & Connect with professionals from industry, academia, and government organisations, fostering collaborations and community building.
