Call for Posters

Thanks to CRFID for making Student Travel Grant funds available to support deserving student poster authors.

The IEEE RFID 2013 poster 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:

  • Antennas & Propagation: Antenna theory and designs, channel measurements and modeling
  • Applications & Software: RFID software, middleware, network applications, reports on the introduction and operational experience of RFID applications (scientific focus!)
  • Circuits, Devices & Interrogators: Circuit designs, non-silicon and chipless RFID, interrogator architecture, multi-interrogator coordination and interference reduction
  • (New!) Next Generation PHY: MIMO and diversity techniques, ultra-wideband backscattering, hybrid ultra-wideband RFID tags and interrogators
  • Localization: Performance bounds, novel system approaches, technologies, and algorithms in RFID tag and reader localization
  • (New!) Power Harvesting: Ambient RF harvesting, power-optimized waveforms, RFID tags using kinetic, thermal, or optical power-harvesting
  • Protocols & Security: Coding, anti-collision, cryptography and privacy-enhancing techniques, medium access schemes
  • (New!) RFID in BioMed: Implantable sensors tags, performance analyses near/in biological fluids and tissues, antenna/system design for biomedical applications
  • Sensors: Integration of sensors with RFID tags, including active, passive, or chipless mechanisms; RFID sensor modeling and analysis
  • Student work: Thesis and dissertation proposals, completed thesis and dissertations

If your topic does not fit one of the above groups or if you are unsure which topic to select, please contact the Poster Chair, Miguel Pardal, at

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 2013. Abstracts are subject to a 2-page limit.
  • Authors of papers accepted in the regular conference track need only submit the abstract of their paper to merit consideration for the poster track.
  • The abstract should be submitted as a PDF document and formatted as per the IEEE manuscript template for conferences
  • 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 booklet and published in the conference website.

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 printed in the Conference Program booklet which will be distributed to all attendees.
  • Abstracts of accepted posters will be included in the IEEE RFID 2013 conference proceedings CD.
  • All the accepted posters will be considered for the best poster award.


  • Poster and Abstract Submissions Due: March 15, 2013 March 18, 2013
  • Author Notification: March 25, 2013
  • Publication-ready versions of abstracts uploaded: March 29, 2013 (firm deadline)
