Background and Goals
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a wireless communication technology that uses radio-frequency waves to transfer information between tagged objects and readers without line of sight. This creates tremendous opportunities for linking various objects from real world. These objects are numbered, identified, catalogued, and tracked. In recent years, RFID has gained a significant momentum and is emerging as an important technology for revolutionizing a wide range of applications including supply chain management, retail, aircraft maintenance, anti-counterfeiting, baggage handling, healthcare, just to cite some.

While RFID provides promising benefits such as inventory visibility and business process automation, some significant challenges need to be overcome before these benefits can be realized. One important issue is how to process and manage RFID data, which is typically in large volume, noisy and unreliable, time-dependent, dynamically changing, and of varying ownership. Another issue is how to seamlessly  integrate low-level RFID data into (existing) enterprise information infrastructures (e.g., upper-level business processes). Finally, given the ability of inexpensively tagging and thus monitoring a large number of items and/or people, RFID raises some serious security and privacy concerns. Indeed, RFID privacy and security are stimulating research areas that involve rich interplay among many disciplines, like signal  processing, hardware design, supply-chain logistics, privacy rights, and cryptography.

The workshop's objective is to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, and users to exchange new ideas, developments, and experience on issues related to this emerging field.

Topics of Interest
We welcome papers that focus on novel RFID technologies and applications. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
• Data management issues in RFID applications
• Innovative RFID-enabled applications
• Security/privacy and RFID
• RFID and sensor networks
• Web services and RFID
• RFID and semantic Web
• RFID standards
• RFID case studies
• RFID middleware
• Next generation RFID technologies
• Commercial experience with RFID
• RFID network management
• COTS and Open Source RFID infrastructure
• Integration of RFID with other applications
• Performance evaluation
• Business process redesign and RFID

Submission of Papers
All papers must be written in English. There will be two types of papers: long (approx. 5000 words) and short (approx. 2000 words). Papers should be prepared in postscript, PDF, or Word and should be submitted through ICEIS web-based paper submission system.

Format of the Workshop
The workshop will consist of oral presentations. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the form of a book by INSTICC Press and indexed in DBLP.

Journal Publication
Best papers of the workshop will be considered for publication in a Special issue of International Journal of Internet Protocol Technology (IJIPT).
