Welcome from the General Chairs

Welcome to IEEE RFID 2021, the 15th annual conference on RFID in Atlanta!

We have a hybrid conference this year as we are still in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a mixture of in-person and virtual attendance. We have created an outstanding program this year with exciting talks, keynotes, workshops and tutorials. We have two exciting workshops this year: Workshop on Wireless Motion Capture and Energy Harvesting Workshop, both of which have attracted a large number of contributions from both industry and academia.

Even with the current challenges brought upon us by the pandemic, we have been able to maintain the exceptional level of technical quality that our attendees expect. Every accepted paper has gone through a rigorous IEEE peer review process conducted by our outstanding Technical Program Committee and led by our TPC Chairs, Dr. Francesco Amato and Prof. Stewart Thomas.

I think that I speak for both our academic and industry contributors when I thank the IEEE Council on RFID (CRFID) and its member societies, and for the generosity of our Patrons who sponsor awards and provide special opportunities for our conference attendees. I also want to acknowledge the dedication and passion of our attendees, authors, speakers, co-chairs, and volunteers. Please help us make next year's conference even better by continuing to submit papers and to volunteer with organization. Talk with anyone on the Organizing Committee to find out how you can contribute.
