Radio Frequency Identification Technologies: A Workshop Summary A Workshop Agenda RADIO FREQUENCY IDENTIFICATION (RFID) TECHNOLOGIES: A WORKSHOP May 10-11, 2004 Watertown Hotel Seattle, Washington Monday, May 10 8:45–9:00 a.m. Introduction and Overview Lynette Millett, Study Director, Computer Science and Telecommunications Board Gaetano Borriello, Chair, Committee on Radio Frequency Identification Technologies 9:00–10:15 Session 1: Brief History and Overview of RFID Technology—Where We Stand Moderator: Bill Schilit (Scribe: Gaetano Borriello) What are the technical realities of RFID? (What is its current functionality? What is it useful/not useful for?) What are adjacent technologies and their complementary/competing roles (e.g., contactless smart cards and active tags)? What is the spectrum of RFID and RFID-related technologies? Panelists: Kevin Ashton, Tim Harrington, Roy Want 10:15–10:30 Break 10:30–12:30 p.m. Session 2: Business Case for and Against RFID Technologies Moderator: Paul Zipkin (Scribe: Bill Schilit) What are the business implications of RFID technologies? (For example, how does RFID work in the supply chain? What are the economics of it? How is it likely to be used in industry?)

Radio Frequency Identification Technologies: A Workshop Summary   What are the possible implications of mandates from government and business? What are potential or actual consumer RFID products? What are the important price points for RFID technology, including tags and readers? What are other economic factors that need to be taken into account? Panelists: Bruce Eckfeldt, Ted Klastorin, Eric Peters, Ravi Rajapakse, Sandy Williamson 12:30–1:00 Lunch 1:00–3:00 Session 3: Where the Technology Is Going Moderator: Steven Shafer (Scribe: Chris Diorio) What are some of the developing technical aspects of RFID technology (e.g., blocker tags, enhanced antenna design, positioning technologies, encryption and other data safeguards, etc.)? What are some of the near-term (i.e., within 5 years) expectations for RFID technology? What factors are limiting or promoting research and development? Panelists: Dan Bailey, Tim Harrington, Ravi Pappu, Ravi Rajapakse, Louise Sengupta 3:00–3:30 Break 3:30–5:00 Session 4: RFID Infrastructure and Data Management Issues Moderator: Gaetano Borriello (Scribe: Paul Zipkin) How might database technology evolve to handle all the data from RFID transactions? What are the ramifications for data distribution, networking, storage, mining, and so on? What are the systems and infrastructure issues that need to be addressed to make these challenges manageable? Panelists: Greg Pottie, Sumit Roy, Javed Sikander, Jim Waldo Tuesday, May 11th 8:30–10:30 a.m. Session 5: Privacy, Social, and Cultural Concerns Moderator: Dana Cuff (Scribe: Steve Shafer) How might the use and distribution of RFID technology affect personal privacy and anonymity? How will the interests and rights of consumers be handled? What are possible government and law enforcement uses of RFID transaction data? What effects will worldwide standards and other bodies have on RFID privacy issues? What are the potential social and cultural implications of significant RFID use? What are the data policy implications of RFID technologies (e.g., control, access, and ownership of RFID-generated data, etc.)?
