Orlando Section RFID
3 February 2009
The Orlando Section has agreed to be a technical
co-sponsor for the IEEE RFID 2009 conference being held at the Disney Swan and
Dolphin hotels Monday/Tuesday April 27-28. http://www.ieee-rfid.org/2009/index.html
This is the third annual RFID conference. RFID technology is growing
rapidly in new applications, including U.S. passports, access control, animal
tagging, inventory control, and even baggage handling at airports for faster
retrieval and delivery (fewer lost bags).
As Publicity Chair, I
have also agreed to coordinate volunteer support for the conference.
targeting student members for this support. Volunteers should arrive by
7:30 a.m. each day for orientation, then expect to work a minimum of 4 hours or
more to qualify for exhibits access, a CD of the papers, free visitor parking
(usually $10), and lunch.
The exhibits will open for the reception
after the technical papers on the first day, then be available the second
There will be three parallel technical sessions after the
opening plenary session and each will need volunteer support. We will need
about 10 volunteers per day to do the following:
We would like to
start making contacts with students and getting commitments from them so we can
build a schedule
- Load speaker presentations on laptops
- Hand out session survey forms
- Serve as session monitor (count heads in the room, etc.)
- Serve as runner for the registration desk
- Staff the IEEE membership table
- Keep the IEEE-USA display loaded with literature
Student liaisons for UCF and DeVry will be sought to
coordinate volunteers from those schools.
nearby sections interested in volunteering should contact George McClure to be
placed on the list. Their preferred dates should be noted as well.
