11th Annual, 2017 IEEE International Conference on RFID!


Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an exciting multidisciplinary field with numerous applications. The 2017 IEEE International Conference on RFID is the premier conference for exchanging all technical research in RFID. The conference attendance boasts an outstanding mix of practitioners and researchers from industry and academia. IEEE RFID 2017 is an opportunity to share, discuss, and witness research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications.

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on RFID is seeking original, high-impact research submissions on RFID-related topics:

  • Papers: significant contributions to research and practice in all aspects of RFID.
  • Posters: RFID-related technical work. Presented on the RFIDJournal Live! trade floor for the entire duration of the conference!

Papers will be submitted for publication in major journals including IEEE Xplore® (see below).

Topic Areas

  • Antennas & Propagation: Antenna theory and designs, channel measurements and modeling, including MIMO, UWB and hybrid RFID
  • Applications & Software: RFID software, middleware, network applications, scientific studies on operational experience of RFID applications, unconventional RF “identification”
  • Circuits, Devices, & Readers: Circuit designs, reader architecture, non-silicon and chipless RFID, multi-reader coordination and interference reduction
  • Energy Harvesting & Wireless Power: Ambient RF harvesting, efficiency improvements, power-optimized waveforms, kinetic, thermal, optical, and other power-harvesting methods
  • Internet of Things (IoT) & Next-Gen Physical Layer: RFID-enabled devices, IoT/RFID system architectures, MIMO, hybrid and UWB RFID systems, novel networking and communication concepts
  • Localization: Performance bounds, novel system approaches, technologies, and algorithms in RFID tag and reader localization, RF tomography and environmental sensing
  • Protocols & Security: Coding, anti-collision, cryptography and privacy-enhancing techniques, medium/multiple access schemes
  • Sensors: Integration of sensors with RFID tags, including active, passive, or chipless mechanisms; RFID sensor modeling and analysis, new sensors for RFID
