Call for Posters

Poster and Demo Submissions

IEEE RFID-TA invites authors to present their work in an interactive poster and demo session held in the afternoon of September 17th immediately after the plenary. Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research directions that may generate discussion, promising ideas not yet fully validated through complete extensive evaluation, or demonstrations of new, exciting technologies.

Posters and demos should fall under one of the RFID-TA 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.

Review process

All submitted poster and demo proposals are reviewed for content by the poster chair and TPC co-chairs, but are not subject to a peer review process.  The list of accepted poster and demo papers will be included in the conference proceedings, but the abstracts will not be included.

Submission format

The submitted poster or demo abstract should be up to 2 PDF pages following the standard IEEE 2-column format. All submissions must be written in English. The title of the paper should begin with either “Poster:” or “Demo:”. Proposals should be submitted under the Poster and Demo Tracks of the RFID-TA 2015 EDAS site.

Additional information for demo proposals

A demo paper submission should include an overview of the demonstration set-up (the inclusion of photographs of the demonstrator is encouraged) and the results that will be showcased to attendees.  If a video is included, it will be downloaded by the poster and demo chair such that it can be hosted on our website. The videos of accepted demonstration proposals will also be advertised on the conference website. For all accepted demonstration proposals, the poster and demo chair will follow up with the authors to obtain requests for required equipment and/or facilities (power outlets, Internet connections, table dimensions, etc.). A poster should accompany the demonstration  describing the general set-up of the demonstration, its background, and the technical content to be discussed.

Please also note that accepted poster and demo abstracts will not be included in IEEE Xplore.

Local arrangements

Poster and demo presenters will be provided with a fixture fitting an A0 size poster in portrait orientation (approximately 840 by 1100 millimeters).  Demo presenters will be provided with a table.

Presenters are required to print out their own posters for the conference and must be registered attendees of the conference.


Please direct all questions regarding the submission process, relevance of the presented material to the conference, and the logistics of the poster/demo session to our Poster Chair, Kohei Mizuno  (

Important dates:

  • Abstract submission deadline: 1 July 2015
  • Notification of acceptance: 15 July 2015
  • Poster/Demo session: 17 September 2015
