Smart SysTech 2012
European Conference on Smart Objects, Systems and Technologies
(former RFID-SysTech)

June 12 to June 13, 2012
Munich, Germany

Accepted contributions will be published in the VDE conference proceedings and in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.


Over the last seven years, the European Workshop on RFID Systems and Technologies (RFID SysTech) had become a central platform in Europe for personal networking and information exchange in the field of smart object technologies and applications. Based on this great success we are now proud to announce the first Smart SysTech - European Conference on Smart Objects, Systems and Technologies to be held in Munich from June 12th to June 13th. This change is accompanied by an extension of our main topic. While RFID remains one of the cornerstones, we open the focus of the event. This is due to the fact that Auto-ID technologies and the “Internet of Things” have grown together to advanced networked “Smart Objects” technologies.
While the networking of objects for the purpose of data collection and distributed control is no longer a recent phenomenon, the sheer number of things that are networked to information systems has dramatically risen. Today, the Internet is increasingly extended to all kinds of physical assets: product components, finished products, logistic units, equipment, documents, vehicles, buildings and electronic meters as well as embedded systems of all kind. Mature industries, like the energy or automotive are in euphoric mood and accordingly, we see enormous research and technological development activity: For instance, Auto-ID technologies, such as RFID, are being increasingly combined with data storage capacity and sensors or other communication devices that provide real-time data such as position, temperature, pressure, vibrations etc. These special-purpose computer systems are able to sense information from the real world or perform actions upon it and are also able to communicate with other networked computer systems.

The resulting integration into existing business processes and IT infrastructures under the side condition of enabling an interaction between intelligent objects and business applications within and between enterprises in a generic, flexible and scalable manner is a considerable challenge. At the same time, the economic potential is promising and will also help enterprises to address completely new challenges in the area of sustainability and energy management, home automation and demand respond: Interacting with smart devices will ensure that enterprises get correct, auditable trails for sustainability metrics or billing information for recharging electric cars. However, business-to-business integration solutions such as the EPCglobal network or other bilateral approaches have to be developed further in order to meet the supporting requirements.

The specific profile of this conference is to examine both the technology and economic aspects:
• the latest achievements in technologies and systems for smart objects
• their integration into information systems and business processes and
• their business value.

Scientists and practicians from the fields of electrical engineering, computer science and information systems will find an excellent opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary discussions, set up new networks and exchange information on a professional level. In addition to the conference and a poster session, an industrial exhibition and demo session presenting the latest innovations will be held.
