In this issue, new GPR system development, acquisition, processing and interpretation techniques are discussed. These collected papers are an outgrowth of the second International Workshop of Advanced GPR Technology which was held on 14-16 May, 2003. There were 75 participants at the workshop which comprised 42 oral presentations from authors all over the world. A selection of the authors was invited to submit full-length journal papers based on a quality assessment during the workshop, and it is those papers which make up this special issue. The workshop was organized by the International Research Centreon Telecommunications-transmission and Radar (IRCTR) and the Section of Applied Geophysics, both from Delft University of Technology (DUT), The Netherlands. The event was a wrap-up for the Netherlands Technology Foundation (STW) funded research project on GPR technology for landmine detection, in which the Laboratory of Electromagnetic Research had been active since the project started in 1999. This was the second STW-funded research project on GPR technology at DUT. The group of people working on the development of GPR technology has increased to more than 20 people in the three different research groups collaborating on this topic.
