The 2014 Working Group Progress Meeting of the COST Action TU1208 “Civil Engineering Applications of Ground Penetrating Radar” was held at the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR) in Nantes, France, on February 24-25, 2014. Over 30 delegates from both academia and industry actively participated to the meeting, being engaged in a series of presentations, discussions and brainstorming sessions, concerning the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) use in civil engineering tasks. The main focus of the meeting was on the following topics: (i) inspection procedures for effective GPR surveying of critical transport infrastructures and buildings; (ii) inspection procedures for effective GPR sensing and mapping of underground utilities and voids in urban areas; (iii) inspection procedures for effective GPR monitoring of construction materials; (iv) determination, through the use of a GPR system, of water content in structures, foundations and soil; (v) advanced techniques for the solution of forward and inverse electromagnetic near-field scattering problems by complex scenarios; (vi) shape-reconstruction and quantitative estimation of electromagnetic and physical properties from GPR data; (vii) processing of GPR data collected during civil engineering surveys.
