Aug 29, 2006AIDC 100, a nonprofit international organization of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) professionals, has announced that Finbarr Curran, CIO and director of the United Nations World Food Program, will be a featured speaker at the third-annual Truth in Technologies Forum, to be held Oct. 5, 2006, at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

The World Food Program was created to ensure that the right amount of food gets to the right people at the right time. Curran will explain the challenges of managing a logistics organization that operates in 83 countries, and how AIDC technologies have enabled this process at the World Food Program.

The Truth in Technologies Forum addresses global issues dealing with RFID, bar-code and other auto-identification technologies that can reduce product counterfeiting and fraud, while at the same time increasing supply-chain efficiencies and enhance public health and safety.

Among the other speakers at the event will be Tom Brady, vice president of AIDC at GS1 US; Neco Can, partner and vice president of systems integrator Attevo; Jean-Pierre Emond, associate professor of packaging sciences at the University of Florida); Craig Harmon, president and CEO of QED Systems; and Mark Roberti, founder and editor of RFID Journal.

"To get at the truth, people need to understand the true promise, the true limitations and the true challenges," says Chuck Furedy, chairman of the AIDC 100 forum. "The forum will put this in a context that involves the practical and honest relationship between technology, standards, applications and human factors like privacy."
