Call for Papers

RFID-TA 2015 seeks original, high-impact research papers and practical implementations with passive and active RFID and their information system. Papers will be selected based on originality, importance of the problem, technical merit, clarity, and the potential impact of the results. We particularly value papers whose theory or simulations are validated with experimental results.

RFID-TA has the following six technical tracks.

  • Industrial deployment and pilot experiments: Practical implementations and pilot experiment using automatic data capturing technology such as RFID and sensors also the adaptions of ISO, GS1 and W3C standards in industrial and consumer applications. We highly weigh real life implementations with operational results.
  • Linked Data and RFID Information System: Data capturing technology such as RFID and sensors produce values to society through proper information system. This track welcomes papers on event modelling, service discovery, advanced identifiers, information system management,  middle ware and large scale data analysis.
  • Networking and Communications Protocols: Reliable networking is essential in communications system without human interventions. This track welcomes papers on advanced error correction, device discovery, network security, authorization and authentication, robust routing, and advanced air protocols for machine to machine or machine to human type of communications.
  • Power Harvesting for Active RFID and Sensors: Power harvesting and wireless power transmission are essential to realize maintenance-free wireless sensors and RFID tags. This track welcomes papers on high efficiency power harvesting circuitry and devices, interference avoidance among wireless communications, and power transmission and networking of power harvesting devices.
  • Printable Electronics and Chipless RFID: One of the big challenges of internet of thing (IoT) paradigm is the significant reduction of cost of communications devices tailored to services. The recent advancement of printing and digital fabrication technology is the key to this challenge. This track welcomes papers in the area of advanced design and manufacturing technology for RFID tags and communication chips and devices.
  • Localization and its Applications: The localization of physical objects is one of the central data elements in information systems for RFID and sensors. This track welcomes papers on advanced localization theory and systems. All localization technologies are welcome including triangulation with radio wave, ultrasonic and audio signals as well as semantic localization through large amount of event records detected with several interrogators and access points.

Only full papers written in the English language will be considered for acceptance in the conference proceedings and must contain new material that has not been published in other publications or currently submitted to other conferences. Papers are limited to a maximum of 6 pages including figures and should follow the standard IEEE Conference format. EDAS will be used for all paper submissions. Papers will be reviewed in the double-blind fashion by a committee of experts in the RFID field. Authors should ensure that their names and affiliations are removed from the submitted document. The papers will be judged based on their originality, unique contributions, technical merit, and clarity.

Accepted and presented papers will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE conference proceedings and in IEEEXplore®. Accepted papers will also be submitted for indexing to multiple abstract and indexing through EI Compendex, ScienceDirect, Scopus, Web of Knowledge, Thomson ISI, and IET Inspec.  This conference is included in the IEEE Conference Publications Program (CPP). IEEE has a long-standing commitment to ensuring the high quality of its conferences and of the conference proceedings published in IEEE Xplore®. Therefore, IEEE reserves the right to withhold publishing of proceedings that do not meet the IEEE quality standards. IEEE makes every reasonable attempt to ensure that abstract and index entries of content accepted into the CPP are included in databases provided by independent abstracting and indexing (A&I) services. Each A&I partner makes its own editorial decision on what content it will index. IEEE cannot guarantee entries are included in any particular database.
