For logistical and organization purposes, registration for Friday morning sessions is mandatory. Please find the registration form here.
|8:30||Satellite communications using Software Defined Radios||Manolis Surligas|

It should be noted that, in order to attend the workshops, participants are asked to bring a personal laptop. A few weeks before the conference, a virtual machine image with all the needed tools will be shared for download.
To get there you can fly either to the Geneva or Zürich airports, and then take a train to Payerne. Additional information is available here.
The trip from Geneva airport is roughly 1h shorter, we will therefore detail it below:
The Geneva airport’s train station is directly accessible from the Registration and Arrivals level of the airport. Trains to Payerne run every half hour; you can either take the Luzern direction (changing train in the Palézieux station), or the Zürich HB one (changing train in Yverdon-les-Bains). The train timetable (and online ticketing service) is available here.
The conference is open and the access is free, nevertheless for organizational purposes and due to infrastructure limitations, an online registration is required. To register to the conference and to receive regular updates about the event agenda please fill the form below.
The information collected will only be used for organizing the conference and will not be disclosed to third parties.
