IEEE RFID 2017 Call for Submissions

The paper submission deadline has passed, but there are more opportunities to showcase your work at the International IEEE RFID 2017 Conference in Phoenix, AZ.

Submission Deadlines
Papers: January 18, 2017

Workshop/Tutorial proposals: January 27, 2017
Mega-Challenge proposals: January 31, 2017
Posters: March 8, 2017

Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an exciting multidisciplinary field with numerous applications. The 2017 IEEE International Conference on RFID is the premier conference for exchanging all technical research in RFID. The conference attendance boasts an outstanding mix of practitioners and researchers from industry and academia. IEEE RFID 2017 is an opportunity to share, discuss, and witness research results in all areas of RFID technologies and their applications.

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on RFID is seeking original, high-impact research submissions on RFID-related topics:

  • Papers: significant contributions to research and practice in all aspects of RFID.
  • Posters: RFID-related technical work. Presented on the RFIDJournal LIVE! trade floor for the entire duration of the conference!

Papers will be submitted for publication in major journals including IEEE Xplore® (see below).
Those submitting papers and posters receive an invitation to submit to the new Journal on RFID, which debuts in 2017.

Submission Guidelines

Papers are expected to be scientific, high-impact works that will be read and cited worldwide. Posters are preliminary work not yet mature for a full paper. Presenting at IEEE RFID conferences is the preeminent way to get publicity and coverage for high-quality work on RFID, IoT, and wireless sensors research. Papers will be published in the IEEE RFID 2017 conference proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore®. Accepted papers will also be submitted for indexing through EI CompendexScienceDirectScopusWeb of Knowledge,Thomson ISI, and IET Inspec.

Accepted papers are chosen on these criteria (in order of importance):

  • Originality
  • Importance of the problem
  • Technical merit
  • Clarity
  • Potential impact of results

Papers are scientific, high-impact works. Accepted and presented papers at IEEE RFID 2017 are read and cited worldwide. Accepted papers will have from 3 to max 6 pages, including references. Authors of accepted papers will present their work in a paper track in a 22-minute time slot. In past RFID conferences, the acceptance ratio for papers was in the range of 20-40%. Authors of papers are encouraged to create a poster and present alongside the RFID industry (see more below). It is not necessary to submit a separate poster abstract. Your paper submission is sufficient.

Posters cover technical RFID-related work, applications, studies, and projects. Poster submissions are judged on relevancy to RFID and clarity. To submit as a poster author (instead of a paper author), submit a poster abstract up to 2 pages maximum, including references; The references should take up less than a half-page. In past RFID conferences, the typical acceptance rate on poster submissions was 80-95%.

Poster presenters get to present their poster on the trade show floor of RFID Journal LIVE! 2017. You will get to interact side-by-side with the RFID industry, engineers, scientists, and academicians interactively for the whole duration of the conference. It is encouraged, although not required, that poster presenters bring their equipment and present an interactive demonstration for conference attendees.

Presenting a poster will give authors a great chance to expose their ideas:

  • Presented on the trade show floor, posters are open to exhibitors and attendees of RFID Journal LIVE!
  • Best posters will be judged twice: by guests for a popular vote and by technical reviewers for the technical vote.
  • Pre-poster display, presenters give a 30-second teaser talk

Workshops/Tutorials. Are you a leading expert in the RFID field?  We welcome you to present a tutorial/workshop to the participants of the conference.  Please email a short proposal (one-page maximum) to the workshop chair

IEEE RFID 2017 accepts paper and poster submissions formatted in the IEEE conference style. Papers will be reviewed in a double-blind review process and submitted for publishing if accepted and presented at the conference. Submissions must be original and may not be under consideration elsewhere. IEEE RFID will not tolerate scholarly misconduct in any form. Cases of multiple publications and plagiarism will be handled according to IEEE policies and procedures.
