The 3rd ElectroSense Workshop

April 27th 2022 in Madrid, Spain


The ElectroSense association has been established in 2016 with the objective of providing a more efficient, safer and more reliable use of the electromagnetic space by improving the accessibility of spectrum data for the general public. Following the growing interest around the initiative, we are proud to announce the third ElectroSense workshop. This one-day event will take place in Madrid (Spain) on April 27 2022 in the campus of Rey Juan Carlos University. The event is targeted at anyone interested in research and applications with spectrum data. It will serve as a forum to discuss new ideas, the network itself, and research activities around ElectroSense.

Participants are invited to actively contribute to the program by presenting their projects at the workshop. We invite participants from research, authorities, regulators, and industry.
