International Summer School on Radar/SAR Systems

4th International Summer School on Radar/SAR Systems (13-20 July 2012)

Fraunhofer FHR, one of Europe's leading radar research institutes and has
pioneered radar and SAR research and development over the decades, is
pleased to announce the 4th International Summer School on Radar/SAR, which
will take place from 13-20 July 2012 in the picturesque Upper Middle Rhine
region (Haus Humboldtstein). We cordially invite students, doctoral
students, post-docs and anyone else eager to broaden and deepen their
understanding of radar and SAR techniques to participate in our summer
school. As the number of places is limited to 35, we encourage you to book
early as demand for places will be high.

The previous International Summer Schools on Radar/SAR certainly had a
strong appeal as they attracted more applicants than it could cater for.
This fact and the very positive feedback of the participants showed that
there is a strong interest for events that brings together young scientists
to study and learn whilst at the same time building networks and forging
friendships that will lead to future collaborations. The Summer School team
succeeded in striking the proper balance between lectures, practical
workshops and the leisure activities that are an essential component for
creating and sustaining an atmosphere conducive to learning and for binding
with new colleagues.

Internationally renowned experts from across Europe and Canada make up the
summer school lecture team. This is a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth
appreciation of modern radar and SAR systems whilst absorbing the
multifarious atmosphere of the famous Upper Middle Rhine region.
Participation in the programme of social activities with the international
group of attendees will inspire and enrich your learning experience.

Synopsis of lecture programme of the 4th International Summer School on
* Radar fundamentals (Dr. M. Weiъ, Fraunhofer-FHR, Germany)
* SAR fundamentals (Prof. P. Lombardo, La Sapienza, Uni. di Roma,
* UWB Short Range Radar Sensors (Prof. R. ThomД, TU-Ilmenau, Germany)
* Bistatic & Distributed Radar (Prof. Prof. M. Lesturgie, ONERA,
* Antennas (Prof. D. Heberling, RWTH-Aachen, Germany)
* Moving target recognition (MTI/GMTI) (Dr. C. Gierull, DRDC, Canada)
* SAR interferometry & polarimetry (Dr. G. Fornaro, IREA, Italy)
* Radar Remote Sensing (Dr. P. Rosen, JPL/NASA, USA)
* Compressed Sensing with Radar (Prof. J. Ender, Fraunhofer-FHR,

At the workshop on Wednesday/Thursday the participants will be divided into
several working groups where each group is presented with a scientific
problem related to the presented material. With the assistance and guidance
of an international expert from the lecture team, each group will work on a
solution to the problem posed and then present their results on Friday.

Outside of the lecture theatre there will be ample time for other
activities, such as enjoying the surrounds of the beautiful Rhine Valley,
visiting the vibrant cities of Cologne and/or Bonn. Summer school
participants will also be taken on a technical tour of the Fraunhofer FHR
institute, which is located nearby.

Due to the kind sponsorship from Cassidian we can offer the summer school,
inclusive full board and lodging, for only 500 Euro for students, 750 Euro
for Ph.D. candidates, and 1000 Euro for all others.
