Management & Entrepreneurship

2008 Symposium

The 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.

Keynote Speakers:

Dr. Daniel W. Engels - Director, Texas Radio Frequency Innovation and Technology Center, College of Engineering, The University of Texas at Arlington

Mr. George Dyche - Avery Dennison, RFID Division
