Co-Located Events


Technical innovation provides an edge in business. The latest scientific and technological research results will be presented for attendees at the IEEE RFID 2013 conference. Meet and learn from the scientists and engineers at the head of the RFID research world. Pick their brains and learn from their efforts. The papers presented at the conference are selected by a thorough peer-review process performed by domestic and international experts in the field. Bonus content from RFID experts will be given as well!

Dates: Tuesday, April 30 through Thursday, May 2, 2013.

Learn about the hottest topics for 2013. Join us for another IEEE technical conference on RFID co-located with RFID Journal LIVE! 2013. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on RFID (CRFID) whose purpose is to provide a focus for the RFID technology across the technical spectrum of IEEE. IEEE is the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology.

The 2013 IEEE International Conference on RFID is the premier conference for exchanging all technical RFID-related research. The conference attendance boasts an outstanding mix of international practitioners and researchers from industry and academia and spans numerous disciplines. Hot topics this year include MIMO, UWB, power harvesting, and biomedical applications. IEEE RFID 2013 is an opportunity to share timely research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications.
