Paper Submission

Due to the widespread COVID-19 travel restrictions and disruptions, the IEEE RFID 2020 have been postponed to September 9 – 11 2020, we therefore announce a second round of submissions.
The new submission deadline is June 17 2020

The IEEE RFID 2020 accepts paper submissions formatted in the IEEE conference style.
Manuscripts should be 3-8 pages, submitted by the advertised conference deadline (January 20, 2020 January 27, 2020 February 3, 2020 )

Papers will be reviewed in a double-blind review process. Accepted papers are chosen on the basis of originality, technical content, clarity and potential impact of results. Submissions must be original and may not be under consideration elsewhere. Cases of multiple publications and plagiarism will be handled according to IEEE policies and procedures.

Papers for which a presenting Author is registered and has paid the registration fee by the set deadline will be scheduled for presentation and included in the Congress Proceedings and they will be published on IEEE Xplore©.

A Special Issue of the IEEE Journal of RFID will promote the most important results presented at the conference.

Peer-review Instructions for Workshop Presenters

New this year!
It is now possible for workshop presenters to have their work published and archived on IEEE Xplore®. This requires a standard peer review process and presentation of the work as for regular conference submissions.


  1. Work with your workshop coordinator to develop your manuscript and presentation end ensure it is relevant to the workshop topic and conference.
  2. Submit your manuscript to the conference by the regular paper
  • Ensure that your paper conforms to the regular conference format and is anonymized for a double-blind review.
  • When submitting your paper, choose the “Other area” track.
  • In the initial submission page for this track, select the option which says “Part of a Workshop.”
  1. Your paper will then be entered into the regular peer-review process and receive a full peer-review (this is no different from regular submissions).
  2. Once reviewed, you will receive a notification.
  • If your paper is ACCEPTED, you will have an opportunity to upload a camera-ready version of your article and complete the final submission process.
  • If your paper REQUIRES REVISIONS, you will be asked to submit a revised version of your article before being accepted. This may also require shepherding to ensure that the paper conforms to the high standards of the IEEE RFID conference.
  • If your paper is REJECTED, this means that the submitted article does not meet the standard to merit publication. However, this in no way precludes you from presenting at your workshop. You will still be recognized for your contribution to the conference workshop (photo/bio on the conference website and a certificate), but will not have the additional archived publication as part of the IEEE RFID Conference Proceedings.
  • In all cases, you may also request to present at the poster session in addition to your workshop presentation.
  1. Register for the conference and present your work

For accepted papers, please recall the registration policy: To be published in the IEEE RFID 2020 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at member or non-member rate, and must present the paper at
the conference. Registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to two papers.

After registration and presentation of your work at the workshop, accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore® as part of the IEEE RFID 2020 Conference Proceedings.

Further details regarding final submission information will be made available in the acceptance notification email.

This procedure has been put in place to allow workshop presenters a second venue to be recognized for their work. This is not a requirement to present a workshop, but only an optional submission that some authors may wish to take advantage of. Even if your workshop paper is rejected, you are still welcome to present at the poster session that typically
takes place on the RFID Journal LIVE! auditorum floor.

Double Blind Instructions

A double-blind review process is intended to eliminate any perception of bias for or against an author or institution based on name recognition, country, gender, or other characteristics. Upon submission, please remove names and affiliations, Moreover, referencing the authors’ own work should be worded in a way that avoids identifying connections to the authors. Simply note your prior work in the same way as work by others. For example, do not write “We demonstrated in [2] that …” Rather, write “It was demonstrated in [2] that…” The author must take every possible step to make the submission anonymous and avoid identification by inference.
1. Eliminate author names, contact information, and affiliations from the title and anywhere else;
2. Eliminate acknowledgments and references to funding sources;
3. Use the third person to refer to the authors’ own work;
4. Ensure figures do not contain any affiliation-related identifier (e.g. logos on hardware or in IC layouts);
5. Depersonalize the work by using anonymous text where necessary;
6. Remove or depersonalize citations to authors’ unpublished work;
7. Remove references to patents filed by authors or their institutions.
