This session brings together researchers from the field of MIMO, UWB and small Antennas for Next Generation RFID. All aspects of experiment, theory and simulation on MIMO, UWB and small Antennas for RFID are of interest. RFID technology in real-time object identification is rapidly adopted in several fields such as logistic, automotive, surveillance, automation systems, etc. Advancements in the field of RFID and Hybrid RFIDs technologies have lead to the development of various antennas like MIMO, UWB, Multiband, Wideband and size reduction for their effective implementation. A RFID system consists of readers and tags applied to objects. The use of advanced multi-input and multi output (MIMO) antennas at transmit and receive in RFID are used for beamforming, spatial multiplexing, pattern and polarization diversities. MIMO antennas are used at the reader to improve the reader performance of RFID systems. Next generation advanced RFID systems are expected to provide both identification and high-definition localization of objects with improved reliability and security while maintaining low power consumption and cost. Ultrawide bandwidth (UWB) technology, small antennas and MIMO antennas are a promising solution for next generation RFID systems to overcome most of the limitations of the current narrow bandwidth RFID technology such as: reduced area coverage, insufficient ranging resolution for accurate localization, sensitivity to interference, and scarce multiple-access capability. This special session is accepting novel and unpublished works on MIMO and UWB antennas with reduced size for the application in next generation RFID.
