IEEEs emerging technologies committee (New Technology Directions) adopted RFIDIEEEs emerging technologies committee (New Technology Directions) adopted RFID Which resulted in 2 technical conferencesWhich resulted in 2 technical conferences IEEE RFID 2007 & IEEE RFID 2008 –To review, accept and publish technical papers –To enlighten on issues (pragmatic & policy) that impact the growth of the technology
13 February 2014IEEE RFID Where is RFID in IEEE? Increased interestIncreased interest –# of technical societies increased 8 in 2007; 15 in 2008 Capped only by organizers limits! –Modest increase in # of papers submitted & accepted; countries of authors And this from an industry-driven technology (vs. academic)!
