UDRC Summer School 2019

Event Date: 

Monday, June 24, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, June 27, 2019 - 16:30


The UDRC will be hosting the 2019 Signal Processing for Defence Summer School at the Heriot-Watt University Riccarton Campus, in Edinburgh. This four day course will be delivered at Masters level and is for researchers in industry, defence and academia who have an interest in Signal Processing for Defence.

Important Dates

  • Summer school: 24th June - 27th June 2019
  • Deadline for submissions: 29th March 2019
  • Successful notification: 10th April 2019

Our aim is to offer an excellent teaching and learning environment which is free to attend. As the course was oversubscribed in previous years and numbers are capped, application to the Summer School requires an applicant selection process.

To ensure that participants are equipped to apply this work to practical solutions, the course will be delivered through traditional lectures and tutorials on set exercises supervised by leading experts in the field.

Day Theme
Monday 24th June Statistical Signal Processing
Tuesday 25th June Sensing and Tracking
Wednesday 26th June Machine Learning
Thursday 27th June Source Separation and Beam forming


The objectives of the Summer School are to:

  • Fill a gap in knowledge for signal processing engineering research students and industrial practitioners.
  • Facilitate the process of taking new theoretical developments into practical engineering applications.
  • Create a focal point for research in Signal Processing for Defence
  • Stimulate new collaborations in this field.

There will also be ample opportunity to network at the UDRC Summer School social events. This year the Summer School Dinner will take place at the Bridge Inn restaurant, transport will be provided. We will also welcome you to a whisky tasting evening where you can sample and learn more about the Scottish national drink.
