RFI 2016 conference
RFI 2016 will bring together scientists and engineers from all horizons to discuss the impact of Radio Frequency Interference in Astronomy, Earth Remote Sensing, and other passive or active fields exploiting the electromagnetic spectrum.
This conference is a great opportunity to debate on the current and future status of interference contamination, and report recent advances made in RFI mitigation from a theoretical and applied point of view. A particular effort will be made to foster exchanges and collaborations between attendees.
RFI 2016 will be held in October 17-20 2016 in Socorro, NM, USA, a few steps away from the Operation Center of the famous NRAO Very Large Array.
Prospective authors are invited to submit a full-length 4 page IEEE standard paper before June 20, 2016 in the following topics:
· Defining and quantifying RFI
· Spectrum management and frequency allocations
· Radio Quiet Zones, electromagnetic interference
· SETI : separating terrestrial and extra-terrestrial transmissions
· RFI detection and prediction
· Calibration, direction-of-arrival estimation
· RFI in remote sensing from space
· Mono and multi antenna signal processing
· Progresses in flagging and excision techniques
· Signal subtraction approaches
· Time/frequency/spatial filtering
· Pre- and post-correlation techniques
· Towards a real-time implementation of identification and mitigation
· Future sources of RFI
Attendees are invited to register before September 15, 2016. Travel grants will be made available for students, as well as a registration fee discount.
