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. It is an opportunity to share, discuss, and witness research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications.

The conference attracts the highest quality research. Accepted authors benefit from disseminating their research to a mixed audience that is equal parts industry and academia. Quick stats:

  • Highly selective. Between 25% and 45% of submitted papers are accepted.
  • High demand. Audience outnumbers authors and presenters by a factor of 6 to 1.
  • Large audience. Between 100 and 300 people attend IEEE RFID with trickle from RFID Journal Live! 2016, which attracts between 2000 and 3000 people.

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.
