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.
