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 AutoID technologies and the “Internet of Things” have grown together to advanced networked “Smart Objects” technologies.
