Sunny days

September is the end of summer in Portugal. However the weather forecast for this week tells us the sun will shine. From Wednesday until Friday, we will have mainly sunny or plenty of sun days. Higher temperatures will be around 28 – 30o C and lows around 16 – 18 o C. Friday will be colder. Rain is not expected.

You will only need ‘fresh’ clothes, but a jacket for the evenings would be recommendable.

New abstracts submission deadline

Although we have had a strong response to the Radio Evolution Congress call for papers, it has been agreed by the ECREA Radio Research Section chair and the Local Organizing Committee to extend the deadline for 10 days. This decision is to answer affirmatively to those who asked for a little bit more time.

The new abstracts submission deadline will therefore be April 25, 2011.

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the ECREA Radio Research Section conference in September 2011. Here you will find full details of the conference theme and the current call for papers. I am very grateful to our colleagues at the Universidade do Minho, who have made all the necessary arrangements to ensure this will be a very successful conference, just like our last, in Cyprus in 2009.

Whether you are engaged in radio research, a radio professional or simply interested in this established and vibrant medium, in September Braga will be the place to be. Please do contact the coordinators if you have any questions at all about the conference.

Professor Guy Starkey,
Chair, ECREA Radio Research Section.
