Call For Papers

*** 2nd International Workshop on Signal Processing Techniques for Ground Penetrating Radar Applications (SPT4GPRA) ***
*** ***

2020 43rd International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP)
July 7-9, 2020, Milan, Italy

Full Paper Submissions: March 15, 2020 (extended deadline)

Technical co-sponsors: IEEE Region 8 (Europe, Middle East and Africa), IEEE Italy Section, Italy Section SP Chapter, Italy Section VT/COM Joint Chapter, IEEE Czechoslovakia Section, IEEE Czechoslovakia Section SP/CAS/COM Joint Chapter, and Scientific Association for Infocommunications, a Sister Society of the IEEE and the IEEE Communications Society.

The TSP 2020 Proceedings, containing presented papers at the Conference, will be submitted for indexing to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library - IEEE Conference Record #49548, SCOPUS, Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) of Thomson Reuters, DBLP, and Google Scholar databases.

After the conference, authors of about 25% highest rated papers will also be invited to submit the extended version for publishing in Special Journal Issues (papers to be published after significant extension and new review process):

• Special Issue Selected Papers from the 2020 43rd International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP) of an Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417), an international peer-reviewed open access journal on all aspects of applied natural sciences published by MDPI and indexed by Web of Science (2018 JCR Q3; current Impact Factor: 2.217)
• International Journal of Advances in Telecommunications, Electrotechnics, Signals and Systems (IJATES) (ISSN 1805-5443), indexed by Google Scholar, CrossRef, WorldCat, EZB Elektronischen Zeitschriftenbibliothek, and Directory of Open Access Journals


Over the past 20 years, the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology has seen tremendous progress in a wide range of applications including, the development of new algorithms for data processing and interpretation. GPR applications are numerous and currently include, sedimentology, ground-water contamination, glaciology, archaeology and cultural-heritage management, civil and geotechnical engineering, highway and transport infrastructure, forestry, planetary exploration, demining amongst others. Wide applicability of GPR together with the recent advancements within the field, has made the GPR technology an area of endeavour with high reliability and trust. Within the framework of the 2020 43rd International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP) held during July 7-9, 2020 in Milan, Italy, the main scope of this Workshop are to encourage the publication of vanguard and pioneering research-based investigations and also provide ample opportunity for further discussions in areas of high interest within the context of the GPR signal processing techniques and applications. Hence, papers with a focus on advanced GPR signal processing techniques in areas including, but not limited to, the civil and environmental engineering, geology, archaeology, cultural-heritage and forestry management are encouraged. The followings are the areas of interest and priority for this workshop:

• Non-linear GPR signal processing
• Signal processing for clutter reduction and increase of the SNR for GPR data
• GPR signal, inverse scattering and image processing techniques for data interpretation
• Velocity and attribute analysis
• Simplified electromagnetic models for real-time GPR signal processing
• Estimation of the electromagnetic properties of materials from radar signals
• Frequency dependent attenuation analysis
• Signal processing for the development of new algorithms and numerical models
• Ground Penetrating Radar signal processing applications

Review papers in the above outlined research area will be considered!

Keywords: GPR, resampling, deconvolution, band-pass filtering, SNR enhancement, EM noise, attenuation analysis, attribute analysis, migration.
