CFP: Int'l Workshop Series on [RFID]


皆様

九州大学の井上創造と申します. 重複してメールを受け取られた方にはお詫び申
し上げます.

このたび,SSR産学戦略的研究フォーラムの支援を受けまして,11月と12月に
RFIDに関するワークショップを東京で開催することになりました.

RFIDシステム全体の設計やプライバシについて本質的な議論ができるよう,参加
申し込みと同時に簡単なコメントまたはポジションペーパーをいただくよう工夫
しております.

ふるってご参加いただければ幸いです.

SCOPE

The emergence of the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology
introduces new opportunities and risks in our everyday life. In order to
make the best use of the technology, relevant technological, social, and
physical infrastructures need to be rethought. 

This workshop aims to provide an academic forum for system designers,
hardware/software/security/HCI researchers, economists, and social 
scientists to:
 - bring together different perspectives, views and ideas 
   in a constructive way, and
 - lay out an agenda for RFID privacy and information sharing 
   research in the next 3-5 years.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 
 [Models] 
   Theoretical foundations and practical models for building systems that
   allow people to share the 'right' information at the 'right' time at
   the 'right' place in the 'right' way among the 'right' people
 [Technology and tools] 
   What kinds of core technology and tools are needed? How can they be 
   integrated in different social and physical context?
 [Contextual factors] 
   How should RFID systems respond to changing personal, social and physical
   context? For example, how can systems understand a reasonable balance 
   between privacy and safety for the elderly with decreasing cognitive 
   abilities?
 [Collaboration] 
   How can service providers, technology vendors and consumers collaborate
   and create a win-win situation?
 [End-user needs] 
   How can we understand consumers' views and incorporate their privacy and
   information needs in the design and evolution of RFID systems?
 [Lessons learned] 
   What are lessons learned from successes and failures of early RFID trials?
 [New paradigms] 
   Is the RFID technology merely an extension of the barcode technology? 
   How will concepts such as Smart Artefacts challenge the current paradigm 
   of RFID applications?
 [Design principles and solutions] 
   Can we propose design principles and methodologies based on the 
   discussions and investigations on the above issues? 

This workshop series includes the following two workshops, each of which will
last for one full day:

  Workshop 1: Issues, Models and Tools (November 10, 2004)
    The first workshop will take place on November 10, 2004 to identify
    and discuss key issues, relevant ideas, models and tools for enhancing 
    privacy and advancing information sharing in RFID systems. 
    People who are interested in topics such as models, technology and tools,
    contextual factors, and collaboration should participate this workshop.

  Workshop 2: Toward a New Paradigm (December 6, 2004)
    The second workshop will take place on December 6, 2004 to extend 
    and integrate different ideas as a first step towards shaping a new 
    paradigm for RFID Systems and Applications. People who are interested
    in topics such as end-user needs, lessons learned, new paradigms, 
    and design principles and solutions should participate this workshop.

Each workshop will include two sessions, one in the morning and the other 
in the afternoon, and will be limited to about 70 participants not including
workshop organizers. Each session includes invited talks and short 
presentations that share a similar topic.
