Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) has become a critical issue for many users of the electromagnetic spectrum. This is especially true for observational sciences such as radio astronomy, microwave remote sensing of the Earth, and Solar and ionospheric studies where highly sensitive measurements are necessary.

Following the previous successful workshops held in Bonn (Germany, 2001), Penticton (Canada, 2004) and Groningen (The Netherlands, 2010), RFI 2016 aims to bring together researchers, engineers and users from all radio science disciplines to consider how RFI a ffects their respective fields, to develop mitigation strategies, and to foster cooperation and collaboration. Attention will also be given to the impact of new and future sources of RFI, spectrum management challenges, and new technology developments.

RFI 2016 will make positive steps towards making meaningful scienti fic observations in the presence of signifi cant and growing Radio Frequency Interference.
