International Workshop Series on RFID aims to provide an academic forum for system designers, hardware/ software/ security/ HCI researchers, economists, and social scientists to: (1) bring together different perspectives, views and ideas in a constructive way, and (2) lay out an agenda for RFID privacy and information sharing research.

& thank you

The success of the first workshop on November 10, 2004 and the second workshop on December 6, 2004 is due to the excellent presentations by the four keynote, three invited, and four other speakers as well as many participants who contributed to the active and stimulating discussions.

In addition to about 60 cumulative registered participants from research labs, companies and universities in several countries, we had a few researchers who made it for the workshops in the last minutes. Our discussions ranged from opportunities and risks of RFID to socio-technical systems, novel RFID application areas, privacy-enhancing technologies, consumer perspectives, information dissemination and access, ambient media, smart environments, item-level tagging, and cross-cultural issues.
