Foreword: 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 real-world objects. These objects are numbered, identified, catalogued, nd 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, aircraft maintenance, anticounterfeiting, baggage handling, etc. 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, timedependent, 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, supply-chain logistics, privacy rights, and cryptography. The IWRT 2007 aims at providing a forum for discussion on some emerging developments in the RFID research ground. The call for papers created a large interest. There were 24 papers submitted from 16 different countries. The international Program Committee eventually selected 10 full papers and 3 short papers. It is our intention to select a sufficient number of papers that would cover, as wide as possible, the majority of core research domains in the field of RFID. In addition, a number of selected papers from IWRT 2007 will be published in a special issue of the “RFID: Technologies, Applications, and Trends” in the International Journal of Internet Protocol Technology. We thank all authors who submitted their papers and the Program Committee members and external reviewers for their excellent work. We hope that the present proceedings will contain enough food for thought to push the RFID utilization to new heights. Finally, our thanks go to Vitor Pedrosa for his great support. (More)
