Final Submission Information for Posters
The IEEE RFID Conference congratulates poster authors selected to participate in the IEEE RFID 2018 Poster Session! IEEE RFID 2018 posters will be displayed in the IEEE Poster and Mega-Challenge Area on the RFID Journal LIVE! trade show floor, which will enable attendees and industry members from both conferences to view your work. Below is the schedule that pertains to poster authors and detailed instructions on how to prepare your final abstract and poster.

Information for Authors of Accepted Posters
- Once you have received notification that your poster has been accepted, please update your abstract with any suggestions from the poster chair. Also, proofread your abstract, ensure that it is written in the IEEE 2-column format, and make sure that all author names are included. Abstracts of accepted posters will be included in the IEEE RFID 2018 digital conference proceedings, which attendees of IEEE RFID 2018 receive. (These abstracts will not be archived on IEEE Xplore as the poster session is not peer reviewed.) Updated abstracts must be uploaded to EDAS no later than February 23, 2018.
- Authors of accepted posters must fill out the poster session authorization form and upload it to EDAS with their final abstract no later than February 23, 2018. The poster authorization form should be filled out using a black or blue pen (no pencils, please).
- Authors of accepted posters are required to print their own poster and bring it to the conference venue. Posters should be prepared in Landscape orientation with the preferred Poster Sizes of 36” Tall x 48” Wide or 42″ x 56″, 48″ x 64″, 30″ x 40″, or International Standard A0 Size (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm).
- 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 member or non-member fee, it is not necessary to register again for one accepted poster display. Early (discounted) registration ends March 2.
- For authors presenting demonstrations, we will provide power strips (US 110V/60Hz mains power) and a 6-foot (1.8m) table. Authors with demos must indicate that their poster presentation involves a demo when uploading their extended abstract to EDAS; otherwise, power and a table will not be provided.
