Call for Papers

The 2009 International IEEE Conference on RFID addresses key topics and issues related to RF-based identification and communication systems, and will feature keynotes, presentations on technology advances and panel discussions on pressing topics. IEEE RFID 2009 is the third annual conference that brings together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to share research results and knowledge in the areas of RFID technologies, their supporting large-scale distributed information systems and their applications.

Once again co-located with the RFID Journal LIVE! 2009 tradeshow and conference, attendees and presenters alike benefit. Authors are invited to submit full 8-page papers in the IEEE conference format presenting new research related to the theory and practice of RF-based identification and communication systems. All submissions must describe original work not previously published or currently under review for publication in another conference or journal.

 Topic areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Antennas & Propagation: Antenna theory and designs, channel measurements and modeling
Circuits, Devices & Sensors: Low-power circuit designs, integrated sensors, energy harvesting, non-silicon-based structures
Communication Protocols: Coding, modulation and medium access schemes
Security & Privacy: Cryptographic protocols and privacy-enhancing techniques
System Tools: Tools for the design, deployment and evaluation of RFID systems
RF-based Localization: Novel system approaches, technologies and algorithms
RFID System Architecture: “RFID middleware”, large-scale discovery services
Policy & Regulatory Issues: Spectral management, privacy issues, co-existence of RFID systems, social implications of RFID technology
Deployment Issues & Concerns: EMC compatibility, tag recycling, issues in patient safety
Applications: Reports on the introduction and operational experience of RFID applications


Paper submissions due: Closed
Notifications of acceptance sent: February 13, 2009
Publication-ready versions uploaded: March 13, 2009


Please refer to the Author Information page. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE conference proceedings and in IEEE Xplore.

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE RFID 2009 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL (member or non-member) rate, and is expected to present the paper at the conference. Registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one FULL registration is valid for a single paper only.
