Johns Hopkins University
This small, informal workshop aims to give voice to the security needs of intensive deployers of RFID in the pharmaceutical, medical, transportation, consumer-payment, and retail industries. By representing a broad cross-section of the RFID community, the workshop will look to shape the research programs of technologists in the service of pressing, real-world problems and to connect industrial RFID users with the scientists crafting next-generation RFID systems. The workshop will include two days of invited talks, panel discussions, and breakout sessions. The workshop will be off the record for media attendees.
Confirmed speakers include:
Daniel W. Caprio, Jr., President, DC Strategies; Former CPO, U.S. Department of Commerce
Hugo Teufel III, CPO, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Paul Jones, FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Ari Juels, RSA Labs
Christof Paar, Ruhr-University of Bochum
