Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an exciting multidisciplinary field with numerous applications. The 2016 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. DSC00894croppedThe IEEE RFID conference is an opportunity to share, discuss, and witness research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications.

The conference seeks the highest quality research usually accepting about one-third of the papers submitted. Accepted authors benefit from disseminating their research to a mixed audience that is equal parts industry and academia that outnumber authors and presenters by a factor of 6 to 1.

DSC00829croppedIEEE RFID conferences are a global event, receiving submissions from around the globe. The RFID 2015 conference received submissions from a wide range of countries:

  • 38% from USA
  • 19% from Germany
  • 11% from China
  • 13% from Sweden, Spain, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, and Norway
  • 11% from Hong Kong, Korea, India, and Australia
  • 3% from Saudi Arabia, Algeria, and Palestine
  • 5% from other countries

Our 63 TPC Members provided an average of 3.3 reviews per paper along with a very vigorous discussion phase. The acceptance ratio reflects both the competitive nature of IEEE RFID conferences and the high quality of the papers presented this year.

Included Tutorial

Design and Measurement of CMOS RF-DC Energy Harvesting Circuits

bd Dr. Murat Eskiyerli, Revolution Semiconductor

This tutorial starts from the first principles and covers the single and multi-stage CMOS RF to DC rectifier design, efficiency, the simulation methodology and the measurement methods for the chip input impedance — a prerequisite for the design of the optimum tag antenna.

Included Tutorial

Reverse Engineering a Passive UHF RFID Tag

bd Dr. Brian Degnan,
Georgia Tech

Passively-powered RFID tags are limited by the energy in the carrier wave, and custom ASIC implementations give the maximum flexibility and power performance, but at an increase in design time.  This tutorial will give an overview of the circuit requirements for a theoretical tag that was reverse engineered from the Gen2 specification.

Included Workshop

Writing Better Papers and More Successful Proposals

Organized by Shahriar Mirabbasi

Learn the do’s and don’ts for writing better technical papers and more successful grant proposals. Learn views and tips on how to avoid common mistakes that often result in a speedy rejection. And, maybe most importantly, learn how to maximize ethics and minimize honest mistakes like accidental plagiarism.
