Call for Posters and Demos

Accepted poster authors: Fill out the Poster Session Authorization Form.

The IEEE RFID 2015 Poster and Demo session provides researchers with opportunities to present their cutting-edge work in an interactive manner in front of an expert audience of academic and industry scientists and engineers from around the world. Posters can cover preliminary or exploratory work within RFID research, report smaller projects or results not mature enough for a full paper, or present any other research that would generate discussion and benefit from this open forum. Posters are encouraged in themes relevant to RFID research which include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • (NEW FOR 2015) Internet of Things (IoT): RFID provisioning and lost connection handling, RFID networking standards, communications standards, RFID-enabled devices, ubiquitous tracking and positioning, IoT/RFID system architectures
  • Antennas & Propagation: MIMO and diversity techniques, Antenna theory and designs, channel measurements and modeling, ultra-wideband backscattering, hybrid ultra-wideband RFID tags and interrogators
  • Applications & Software: RFID software, middleware, network applications, scientific studies on operational experience of RFID applications, unconventional RF “identification”
  • Circuits, Devices, & Interrogators: Circuit designs, non-silicon and chipless RFID, interrogator architecture, multi-interrogator coordination and interference reduction
  • Energy Harvesting and Wireless Power: Ambient RF harvesting, efficiency improvements, power-optimized waveforms, RFID tags using kinetic, thermal, or optical power-harvesting
  • Localization: Performance bounds, novel system approaches, technologies, and algorithms in RFID tag and reader localization, RF Tomography and Environmental Sensing
  • Protocols & Security: Coding, anti-collision, cryptography and privacy-enhancing techniques, medium/multiple access schemes
  • Sensors: Integration of sensors with RFID tags, including active, passive, or chipless mechanisms; RFID sensor modeling and analysis, new sensors for RFID

Submission Instructions

  • The poster submission should be in an extended abstract that describes the technology being presented, the originality, and the relevance to IEEE RFID 2015. Abstracts are subject to a 2-page limit.
  • The abstract should be submitted as a PDF document and must adhere to the 2-column IEEE manuscript template for conferences (templates and instructions available from the IEEE)
  • The abstract must be submitted through the EDAS system.
  • A short summary (100 words or less) of the poster should be entered while submitting the poster in EDAS. This summary will be included in the Conference Program and published in the conference website.
  • Authors of papers accepted in the regular conference track need only submit the abstract of their paper to merit consideration for the poster track.

If you are having issues submitting your PDF through EDAS, first try using the IEEE PDF Checker to determine the problem. A common issue is caused by fonts not being embedded in the document. If you are still having trouble, contact the poster chair for help.

Poster Author Information

  • Submissions will not be subject to a peer review process. Decisions will be made based on relevance to the conference theme after a review led by the Poster Chair.
  • Authors of accepted poster entries are required to print their own poster and bring it to the conference venue. Accepted posters will be provided with an A0 (841 x 1189 mm) display area and will be scheduled for presentation during the conference.
  • Each accepted poster must be posted in the display area and presented for discussion during the poster session. The poster presenter must be an author of the poster and that author must be registered for the conference based on their IEEE membership status: Member, Life/Retired/Student, or Non-Member. Once an author of an accepted paper has registered for the conference at the full member or non-member fee, it is not necessary to register again for one accepted poster.
  • Authors of accepted posters must fill out the poster session authorization form, which is provided in the acceptance email.
  • A list of accepted poster titles, author names and affiliations, and a short poster summary will be listed in the Conference Program which will be distributed to all attendees.
  • Abstracts of accepted posters will be included in the IEEE RFID 2015 digital conference proceedings.
  • All accepted posters will be considered for the best poster award to be determined by conference attendees.
  • For authors presenting demonstrations will will provide power strips (US 110V/60Hz mains power) and a 6-foot (1.8m) table.
