The 1st ElectroSense Workshop

April 4-5 2019 at KU Leuven, Belgium

About

The ElectroSense association has been has 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 first ElectroSense workshop. This two-day event will take place in Leuven (Belgium) on April 4/5 2019. The event is targeted at anyone interested in research and applications with spectrum data. The workshop 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 anticipate that there will be many opportunities to get to know the community during the social activities around the workshop program
