The First Action’s GeneraI Meeting of the COST Action TU1208, “Civil Engineering Applications of Ground Penetrating Radar,” is held in Rome, Italy , from the 22nd to the 24th of JuIy, 2013. There are about 100 scientific participants attending this international event, from 19 European Countries. This event constitutes a valuable opportunity to meet the participants of the COST Action TU1208 as well as a prestigious forum for a promising discussion and a wide exchange of knowledge and experience related to the use of GPR in civil engineering problems. The meeting is mainly devoted to address the state of the art, advancements, ongoing studies and open problems, in the fields of GPR technologies and methodologies, inspection strategies and practices, electromagnetic methods for the modelling of GPR scenario s, and numerical algorithms for the processing of GPR data. This event also aims at emphasizing the importance of the relations between the discussed scientific-technological issues and the social and economical concerns. A further objective of this meeting is to exchange and discuss preliminary ideas about the definition and coordination of test scenario s, representing both typical and unusual situations that may occur in civil engineering tasks, for an effective comparison between different advanced GPR equipment, inspection procedures, electromagnetic methods and data-processing algorithms.
