Content Foreword

EUSAR, the European Conference on Synthetic Aperture Radar, is the world leading international conference dedicated to SAR techniques, technology, and applications. This biennial event provides an excellent forum for exchanging information and for discussion on a wide variety of SAR related topics and latest developments.

In addition to oral sessions there will be an interactive poster session. Awards for Best Paper, Best Poster and Best Student Paper will be presented on the last day of the conference.

EUSAR will offer several full-day tutorial courses on the first day, including topical areas such as polarimetry, interferometry, Pol-InSAR and bi-/multistatic SAR. They comprise principles and basic theory, as well as an overview of applications and sensor systems.
