Get up to date on RFID research and technical know-how by attending RFID 2014. The conference committee strives to provide an experience with both social networking opportunities with the top researchers and scientific research dissemination. There will be plenty of new discoveries and information presented that will inspire you to use RFID in new ways for your business application or scientific study.

Get an international breadth of new perspectives. Academic and industry perspectives from the entire world will be presented as well. In the last conference, 32% of the paper submissions were from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. About 20% were from Asia and Pacific countries. About 44% of the paper submissions were from the USA. And 4% were from Latin America. Last year’s conference could only accept 40% of the high-quality papers submitted.

  • Hear from leading experts in the field about the latest developments in RFID.
  • Meet other practitioners and researchers from industry and academia.
  • Learn about the latest research advancements in specific conference tracks and the poster and demo session.
  • Expand your knowledge by attending one of many workshops and tutorials.
