Welcome to the 20th CLRC 2020

(Download Poster)
We are excited to announce the 20th conference on coherent laser radar technology and applications (CLRC 2020)! It will take place from June, 28 to July, 3, 2020 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen located in the southern part of Germany next to the mount Zugspitze.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen lies in the heart of vacation areas and close to numerous culture heritage sites. Munich as the capitol city of Bavaria is a one hour car ride away. Munich is an important European business and industrial location. It’s also an important town of science, history and culture.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are delighted to invite you to the 20th CLRC. Scientists, researchers, engineers, manufacturers, and decision makers from all over the world, are welcome to participate in this international event. The 20th CLRC will include invited plenary talks and both oral and poster presentations, covering the areas of coherent and direct detection wind lidars and related topics.

This International Conference will serve as a platform for

We are looking forward to meeting you at the 20th CLRC!
