The 2015 New England Workshop for Software Defined Radio (NEWSDR’15) is the fifth installment of an annual series of workshops organized by the Boston SDR User Group (SDR-Boston). The previous NEWSDR events were held at Boston University (Saturday 1 October 2011), Northeastern University (Friday 11 May 2012), Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Friday 17 May 2013), and Boston University (Friday 6 June 2014). The goal of these workshops are to provide a forum through which individuals working on SDR-related projects in the greater Boston area can get together in order to collaborate and introduce SDR concepts to those interested in furthering their knowledge of SDR capabilities and available resources.
Following on the success of these workshops, this year’s NEWSDR event offers a chance for presenting further developments in SDR and Cognitive Radio research by individuals in the greater Boston area. In addition to providing an opportunity for researchers in the greater Boston area to network and interact on issues relating to SDR and Cognitive Radios, the event will include:
- Keynote Presentations on the latest in SDR
- Poster Presentations with Short “Elevator-Pitch” Oral Presentations
- Technology Demonstrations
- Hands-On Tutorials
- Continental Breakfast / Coffee / Lunch / Parking Included
- GNU Radio Hacking Workshop (Thursday 21 May 2015)
