New York, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
RFID Journal, the world's leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID), today announced that it is accepting submissions for the 2012 RFID Journal Awards, which recognize companies and organizations that have distinguished themselves by their successful use of RFID or the introduction of a valuable new RFID product or service.
This year, RFID Journal has introduced a new award category, "Best RFID Thesis," designed to reward excellence in academic research. This new category, sponsored by the Global RF Lab Alliance (GRFLA), will be given to the best academic thesis, and the top three submissions will be published in the GRFLA-endorsed International Journal of RF Technologies: Research and Applications. Don't miss this unique opportunity to be recognized in the RFID and technology communities.
RFID Journal's editors have selected an independent panel of judges to evaluate entries and choose this year's winners. In addition to this new category, the 2012 RFID Journal Awards will also be given in six other important categories:
