Subject: [industrycenters] Call for abstracts:  Fourth annual RFID Symposium

Colleagues:

Abstract submissions are invited on a broad range of themes related to
RFID.





 RFID:

Integrated Supply Chains

Symposium

Fourth annual symposium will convene at
Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business,
Waco, Texas, U.S.A.



September 18-19, 2008



Even though RFID (radio frequency identification) business applications
have evolved over the past couple of decades, there is no doubt that it
is an emerging technology for identifying and tracking objects which
holds many promises for closing the time-lag gaps in information
transfer for improving supply chain operation productivity.  This
RFID-awareness has prompted much discussion about its benefits,
challenges, and security issues.  The theme of this symposium is the use
of RFID in supply chains.  Sessions will address the massive interest in
this old technology, which is changing the landscape of integrated
supply chains.  The use of RFID ranges from asset tracking to cashless
payment to homeland security, and more.



Speakers at the event will discuss RFID strategies and implementation
used to accomplish this.  Abstract submissions are invited on a broad
range of themes including (but not limited to):




*	Health Care
*	Transportation
*	Inventory control models
*	Order fulfillment
*	Managing technology in the value chain
*	Integration of planning and procurement
