Call For Papers

Electronics — Open Access Journal (

=========================== Call for Papers ==========================================
Special Issue: "RFID Systems and Applications"

Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on the science of electronics and its applications. It publishes reviews, research articles, short communications and letters. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers.

The journal is indexed by many services such as follows:
- CAS, Chemical Abstracts (ACS)
- DOAJ, Directory of Open Access Journals
- ESCI, Emerging Sources Citation Index (Thomson Reuters)
- Scopus (Elsevier)
- Web of Science (Thomson Reuters)
- CLOCKSS (Digital Archive)
- e-Helvetica (Swiss National Library Digital Archive)

RFID is a rapidly growing research area, which is capable of making physical objects and people identifiable. With a large number of exciting multidisciplinary applications, RFID continues to tremendously attract specialists in research and industry. It is core to many novel applications in ubiquitous computing, such as the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT paradigm, as currently envisioned, consists of interconnected heterogeneous networks where smart things and users interact based on enabling technologies, such as RFID. The introduction of IoT has vivified the initiations to invent a hodgepodge of specifications and standards to enable everyday objects to connect to the Internet. In the light of the IoT, many of traditional applications of RFID technology are elevating to the next step. For instance, smart supply chain management based on IoT data will inspire RFID enabled supply chains to acquire more agility, as well as higher level of wisdom in making decisions such as supplier selection.

Although it is widely adopted, RFID presents a set of challenging significant issues that should be resolved in order to boost the benefits of this technology. As the IoT dominates this area, new challenges have been introduced, which are mostly related to the scalability and energy efficiency. It is anticipated that by 2020, billions of devices will be connected to the Internet. Thus, a key challenge is to design and implement highly scalable and energy efficient specifications and technologies to collect, maintain, process and present large-scale data streams from things. Moreover, several other new challenges involve context aware processing of RFID data, redefining Human and Smart Things Interaction, designing novel smart applications based on RFID in different areas of everyday life in urban/rural areas, interlinking RFID enabled objects, security, and privacy of RFID data in the context of IoT.

In this context, this Special Issue aims at bringing together the latest research on both conceptual studies and algorithmic solutions to the existing challenges in deploying RFID specifications and its applications. This Special Issue will provide an opportunity for researchers to exchange new ideas across the emerging field.

The special issue expects original and high-quality papers, including but NOT limited to the following topics:

- RFID Applications
- Internet of Things
- Industrial Internet
- Green RFID Applications
- RFID Data Management
- Supply Chain Management
- Healthcare Services
- Inventory Management
- Uncertainty
- Middleware for Internet of Things
- Intelligent Tags
- Urban Computing
- Context Aware Computing
- Smart Homes and Smart Cities

** COST:
Accepted papers for this special issue will be published FREE.
