See the latest issue of the RFID Virtual Journal (Subscribers Only)

To the Global RFID Community:

We have just launched the IEEE RFID Virtual Journal with 12 seminal papers and curations from experts in the RFID academia and industry. The first issue covers the areas of antenna design, RFID applications, data and power transfer, design optimization and implementation for RF energy harvesting circuits, multiport sensor RFIDs, effect of protocol parameters on RFID tag performance, as well as extracting information from tag collisions. Future issues will cover these and many other RFID areas that bring to readers in depth science and technology on RFID. With the Internet connecting the world, digital media is abundant. Finding information is easy; finding the information that is right for you is hard. The RFID Virtual Journal, with dedicated curations from world-class experts, gives you a good start on the essence of RFID technology know-how. We have just mentioned a few areas. But, please, be our guest: read through our journal to discover its value. Let us know what topics interest you! Click here for more info on subscribing.

From its inception in 2007, the IEEE International Conference on RFID has grown in size and technical importance to the RFID community.  In November, 2008, the IEEE Technical Activities Board recognized this growing technical importance through the establishment of a new technical committee called the IEEE Technical Committee on RFID (CRFID). The purpose of CRFID is to provide a focus for the RFID technology across the technical spectrum of IEEE.  Member societies and councils with an interest in RFID have selected their volunteer representatives who will have voting privileges on the committee. In addition to society and council representatives, CRFID welcomes participation from IEEE members with an interest in RFID. One of the major responsibilities of the committee is the planning and oversight of the IEEE International Conference on RFID series. CRFID will also foster technical exchange through workshops and technical forums. CRFID welcomes any IEEE member who would like to become involved in the work of this new RFID community.
