Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has recently gained a significant momentum and is emerging as one of the major technology for revolutionizing a wide range of large-scale distributed information systems and applications including supply chain management, defence, aerospace, anti-counterfeiting, baggage handling, healthcare and pharmaceuticals. While RFID provides promising benefits, some significant challenges need to be overcome before these benefits can be fully realized. Accepted papers will be included in the IEEEXplore®

This symposium aims to serve as a forum for researchers, practitioners, and users to exchange new ideas, developments, and experience on RFID related issues addressing technologies, systems, networks, algorithms, and applications that support the development and adoption of RF-based wireless communications and identification systems.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

  • Healthcare and pharmaceuticals
  • Transportation and Logistics
  • Defense and aerospace
  • Operating systems and middleware support
  • RFID Standards
  • Data Management Issues in RFID Applications
  • Wireless communication and networking
  • Privacy, Security and Authentication
  • RFID and Sensor Networks
  • Performance Evaluation
  • Social Implications of RFID
