The 2018 IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) International Conference on Radio Frequency Identification Technology and Applications (IEEE RFID-TA 2018) was recently held in Macao. Co-organised by the University of Macau (UM) Faculty of Science and Technology (FST), the IEEE Council on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and IEEE Macau AP/MTT Joint Chapter, the event attracted over 80 experts, scholars, researchers, and industry practitioners in the field of RFID from the United States, Europe, Singapore, Japan, India, mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macao. Participants discussed the latest developments and research findings in RFID and its applications in the Internet of Things, and explored opportunities for further collaboration and joint development in the field.

Keynote speakers in the conference included Prof Koichi Ito from Chiba University, Japan; Dr Lau Pui Yi from Laxcen Technology Ltd, Hong Kong; Nick Pugh from Rohde & Schwarz Hong Kong Limited; Prof Chen Zhi Ning from the National University of Singapore; and Dr Jukka Voutilainen from Voyantic Ltd Finland. Several internationally renowned companies showcased their products at the exhibition and shared their latest research results with conference participants. Prof Tam Kam Weng, general chair of IEEE RFID-TA 2018 and associate dean of the FST, says that the conference aimed to enhance collaboration among research institutes in the Greater Bay Area and promote the application of this technology in smart city development and the Internet of Things.

The IEEE Council on RFID dedicates itself to promoting radio frequency identification and its development and applications in the Internet of Things. The conference is an annual event held alternately in Europe and Asia. This year's event received support from the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute, Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau, and the Science and Technology Development Fund.
