IWAGPR 2011 : 6th International Workshop on Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar
Call For Papers
The International Workshop on Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar is a biannual series
of international scientific symposia devoted to the advancements in GPR techniques and
applications. The conference is aimed at presenting a wide range of scientific and technical
information of high standard to scientists, engineers and end-users of GPR technology.
The goal of the workshop is to spread knowledge about GPR technology and its use, as
well as, to provide a unique possibility to participants to exchange ideas about the
advances in their work and discuss their results. All papers presented at the conference will
be published in the workshop proceedings. The official language of the conference is
Contributions are solicited on (but not limited to):
Diagnostic of Historical Buildings
Mining and Tunnelling
Utilities detection and mapping
Demining and UXO
GPR wave interaction with the earth
Data Processing and Interpretation
Novel GPR Systems and Antennas
Airborne, Borehole GPR
Welcome to Aachen, Germany!
Aachen is situated in an area, where the three countries of Germany, Belgium and the
Netherlands meet. The source of the city’s fame is the Aachen water. Since Roman times,
the hot springs at Aachen have been channeled into baths. It is heated by the Eifel
volcanos up to a temperature of 74°C and is known to be the hottest volcanic spring water
north of the Alps. The Emperor’s City is a popular travel destination. This is not just
because of its favorable geographical position but also due to its large variety of art and
culture, elegant shops and pubs. At the heart of the City lies the Aachen Dom (Cathedral).
In 1978 this was the first German building to be included in the Unesco list of World
Heritage Sites. The Dom is proud to house the most precious treasures north of the Alps.
These can be seen in the Cathedral Treasury. Not far from the Cathedral is the Gothic
Town Hall. Its facade is richly decorated with countless figures that remind people of the
German coronations that took place in Aachen. A sweet Christmas present has spread
Aachen’s fame across the globe: The “Printen” are made from a kind of dark and spicy
ginger bread and can be bought in the Aachen Christmas Market as well as in many other
places in the city.
