About the Conference

Radars have been used since decades to detect animal movements. Nowadays computer technologies and more powerful tools for data analysis provide new opportunities for using radars on a larger scale and for new challenging applications. This conference will bring together experts working with different radar technologies and different species (birds, insects, bats) to present the state-of-the-art of the current research on radar aeroecology and to discuss future challenges.
This Conference is an initiative of ENRAM (European Network for the Radar surveillance of Animal Movement).
ENRAM is an Action initiated by the COST Programme (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) from October 2013 until October 2017
