RFID Journal LIVE! 2013 to Feature IEEE RFID 2013 Colocated Event
The 11th annual conference and exhibition will host the IEEE Technical Committee's RFID event for the fifth year running.
Dec 17, 2012—RFID Journal announced today that for the fifth year in a row, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) will hold its annual radio frequency identification event—the IEEE International Conference on RFID (IEEE RFID)—in conjunction with the RFID Journal LIVE! 2013 conference and exhibition. The two colocated events will be held from Apr. 30 to May 2, at the Orange County Convention Center, located in Orlando, Fla.
"The combination of IEEE RFID and RFID Journal LIVE! offers a unique opportunity for industry and academic participants to network and form new collaborations across traditional RFID applications, as well as exciting new areas," says Matt Reynolds, IEEE 2013's general chair. "This year, new areas of biomedical applications, cutting-edge communication techniques, and power harvesting will be featured at IEEE RFID. We invite all participants, whether from industry or academia, to participate in the event and share their newest, cutting-edge ideas that will help define the future of RFID."
The 2013 IEEE International Conference on RFID, sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on RFID (CRFID), attracts attendees from a mix of international practitioners and researchers from industry and academia, and spans numerous disciplines. Hot topics this year will include multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) and ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. IEEE RFID 2013 presents an opportunity to share timely research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications.
"IEEE's conference is the world's most important RFID technical event, and combining it with LIVE!'s focus on the business value of RFID only makes sense," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "This is a partnership that serves the best interests of both of our audiences."
LIVE! 2013 will feature four industry-specific and four how-to conference tracks, as well as eight in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, fast-track training and the RFID Journal Awards. In addition, the conference will offer live demonstrations and contests in the industry's largest exhibit space, featuring the leading technology firms.
The conference tracks will cover such industries as defense and aviation, health care and pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, retail and apparel, and technology and infrastructure, as well as application topics explaining how to deploy RFID, enhance visibility and traceability, and improve supply chain and logistics. The preconferences and workshops will provide in-depth education in such areas as security and access control, harsh environments, warehouse and inventory management, and retail and apparel, with specified programs for IT professionals, suppliers and the Near Field Communication (NFC) sector. What's more, the program will include RFID Journal University, the company's most popular preconference, providing foundational knowledge regarding RFID technologies.
