RFID Journal LIVE! 2009 to Feature Four Colocated Events

By Admin

The conference and exhibition, to be held on Apr. 27-29 in Orlando, will host the AIDC Strategic RFID Workshop, IEEE RFID 2009, the Printed RFID Conference and the RFID in Aerospace Workshop.


RFID Journal LIVE! 2009, a conference and exhibition focused on radio frequency identification and its many business applications, will host four colocated events on Apr. 27: the AIDC Strategic RFID Workshop, IEEE RFID 2009, the Printed RFID Conference and the RFID in Aerospace Workshop.

The seventh annual RFID Journal event, RFID Journal LIVE! 2009 will be held on Apr. 27-29, 2009, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin in Orlando, Fla., and will feature eight industry-specific and how-to conference tracks, seven in-depth preconference seminars, fast-track CompTIA RFID+ training and certification, and the RFID Journal Awards, as well as numerous technology exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the leading technology firms. The four colocated events are designed to provide added value to attendees by enabling them to access additional education sessions.

AIDC Strategic RFID Workshop

This uniquely interactive workshop will be offered to augment the more technically focused vertical-market preconference sessions, enabling end users to send a team member to understand the strategic approach to RFID technology adoption. Presented by the AIDC 100 organization of professionals who have contributed significantly to the growth and advancement of the automatic identification and data-capture (AIDC) industry, this workshop will provide attendees with insight into how to avoid implementation problems and reduce costs by understanding the lessons learned through the adoption of bar codes and other AIDC technologies that parallel RFID.


The 2009 IEEE International Conference on RFID, sponsored by the IEEE, will attract leading researchers, developers, integrators and visionaries looking to discuss and expand their knowledge of technologies, systems, networks, algorithms and applications of RF-based wireless communications and identification systems. IEEE RFID 2009 is especially geared toward those looking to understand the research currently underway that will drive future advances in radio frequency identification.

Printed RFID Conference

Printed RFID 2009, produced by IntertechPira, will bring together leading experts and companies focused on printed electronics for RFID. The purpose of this conference will be to update RFID technology providers, systems integrators and end users regarding the latest developments in printed electronics for RFID, and to show how printed electronics can be used to create low-cost tags.

RFID in Aerospace Workshop

This workshop will provide a unique opportunity to understand the fundamentals of RFID technology in relation to the aerospace sector. Participants will take away learnings in the following subject areas: technology basics (including overviews of physics, hardware and software), business and use cases of RFID for aerospace and defense, and important standards and regulations that are key to effective deployments.

“We are extremely excited about being able to work with IEEE, AIDC 100 and IntertechPira, and to bring this content to attendees,” says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal‘s founder and editor. “RFID Journal LIVE! has become the world’s premier RFID event because it offers attendees real value in terms of high-level content, as well as access to the leading technology providers. And these colocated events will enhance that value.”
