Technical innovation provides an edge in business. The latest scientific and technological research results will be presented for attendees to the IEEE RFID 2014 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 talks, papers, and posters you will find at the conference are selected by a thorough peer-review process performed by domestic and international experts in the field.

Dates: Apr. 8-10, 2014

Learn about the hottest topics for 2014 and gain access to RFID Journal LIVE! 2014 in the same venue on the same days. 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.

Earn Professional Development Hours by attending the RFID tutorials.

The 2014 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 2014 is an opportunity to share timely research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications.
