Deavours Serves as Technical Chair for International RFID Conference


By Michelle Ward

ITTC Research Associate Professor Daniel Deavours is the Technical Program Chair for the 2010 IEEE International Conference on RFID (radio frequency identification) in April. The emerging tracking technology enables greater visibility. Monitoring the location and conditions of assets, inventory and more, companies can reduce operational costs and optimize business processes.

Deavours points out that the conference boasts a high degree of academic and industry involvement and participation, which is in step with the ITTC mission.

He is overseeing the peer review process. He ensures that submitted papers receive proper review, stimulates discussion among reviewers and reaches out to additional experts when necessary. With input from reviewers, Deavours decides what papers will be accepted for the conference.

He also serves as a member on the general organizing program committee. He led the effort to start a poster session to include early stage research that may not be ready for the main conference.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
