Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The quest in the research community to achieve scalable, energy-efficient, and robust ubiquitous systems and applications, has inadvertently brought to fore the many desirable potentials of RFID. RFID, which supports the easy identification of physical objects and people, is fast-paced research. Moreover, with the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm, the integration of RFID systems in many wireless and ubiquitous applications has resulted in the development of many exciting, innovative and automated systems. Furthermore, the introduction of IoT in healthcare to foster quality and safe healthcare applications, has made the need to elevate the many traditional applications of RFID a prerequisite. Therefore, the field of RFID is gaining continued momentum in research and design, with general acceptance as an efficient technology capable of ameliorating the drawbacks of several technologies.

RFID, though widely accepted as an exciting technology, presents several significant design challenges and issues to engineers and researchers. These issues arise from the context-aware processing of RFID data, achieving efficient matching and read range, developing novel smart IoT-based applications, achieving smart and human interaction, and the privacy and security issues of RFID data within the IoT context.

This Special Issue solicits original papers that contribute to the understanding of RFID and its impact on the design, development and use of applications in ubiquitous environments.

Submission can focus on the conceptual and applied research in topics including, but not limited to:

  • Antenna and propagation in RFID frequencies
  • Signal processing of data in RFID systems
  • Pervasive applications in mobile and ubiquitous environments for identification and monitoring
  • RFID in eHealth
  • Touchless identification
  • RFID in biomedical applications
  • RFID inside a living body
  • Security on RFID technology
  • RFID and the Internet of Things
  • Passive and active RFID technologies and applications

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
