8th Annual GRCon
GRCon is the annual conference for the GNU Radio project & community, and has established itself as one of the premier industry events for Software Radio. It is a week-long conference that includes high-quality technical content and valuable networking opportunities. GRCon is a venue that highlights design, implementation, and theory that has been practically applied in a useful way. The conference has grown in size every year, and we are once again expecting significant growth this year. GRCon attendees come from a large variety of backgrounds, including industry, academia, government, and hobbyists.
GRCon18 was held at the Henderson Convention Center in Henderson, Nevada, a suburb of Las Vegas, Nevada.
With an annual program that has broad appeal, GRCon attracts people new to Software Radio just looking to learn more, folks that want to keep their finger on the pulse & direction of the industry, and seasoned developers ready to show off their latest work.

DeepSig is pioneering the use of deep learning for signal processing and radio systems, developing fundamentally new methodologies for the design and optimization of wireless communications. Our approach uses AI to learn optimized models directly from data rather than manually designing specialized algorithms, creating communications systems that excel in complex environments and are optimized end-to-end. By creating new tools, algorithms, and approaches for signal processing systems, DeepSig is able to achieve unparalleled results in system performance. DeepSig’s engineers have published many of the seminal scientific papers in this area, and are the technical leaders in building real-world practical systems with this technology.
Leonardo DRS is a leading provider of high-performance software-definable radios designed with an unsurpassed ability to detect very weak signals in dense and noisy signal environments. DRS is a strong supporter of, and active participant in, the SDR communities and is focused on developing SDR software that runs in open source frameworks such as GNU Radio. In addition to SDRs, DRS designs HF through SHF tuners, receivers, transceivers and data recorders that are driven by cutting-edge mechanical packaging that yields the best in size, weight and power reductions.
