Organizational Systems and Technology Track

Forty Third Annual


January 5-8, 2010

Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa,
Kauai, Hawai'i

Additional detail may be found on HICSS primary web site:


Description: This half-day mini-track addresses issues organizations face as they implement and use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and other RF technologies.  Due to adoption mandates by several major buyers and retailers, many companies are now engaged in implementing pilot projects on RFID to understand the potential and business case for this emerging technology.  RFID dramatically increases the potential for organizations to collect data about any tagable entity, which has implications for supply chain management, human resources management, customer relationship management, and privacy/intellectual property management.  We encourage authors to share new and interesting theoretical and methodological perspectives on topics relevant to both academic researchers and practitioners.  We welcome work-in-progress that examines existing and extended theory using RFID as the technology of focus and case studies of organizations implementing RFID inside and outside their span of control.  In order to lay a foundation for future research regarding this emerging technology, we invite participation from senior public and private policymakers, as well as executives whose organizations play a defining role in promoting RFID within their industries.  We give special consideration to research submissions when the author(s) commit to include an industry partner in their presentation.  We welcome research that reflects a range of current research methods including case studies, analytical models, econometrics, and frameworks.   

Topics. The following areas are suggestive of the range of topics that are considered suitable:  

         Detailed case studies of RFID implementation and usage

         Methods for developing the business case for RFID adoption

         Methods and benefits of managing the voluminous data collected with RFID

         Impact of RFID on employees and related work processes

         Aligning interorganizational governance, incentives, and ownership

         Understanding the technical capabilities and limitations of RFID

         Forecasting the technical evolution of RFID and its relationship to the economics of usage

         Technical integration of RFID with other applications

         Understanding the role of standards for the proliferation and use of RFID

         Estimating the business value of the technology internally and across company boundaries

         Costs and risks associated with becoming dependent on the technology

         The role of standards development organizations (SDOs) on RFID technology development

         Safeguarding personal privacy and physical health

**** Accepted papers that are of high quality will be invited to submit their revised manuscripts for possible fast-track status in the International Journal of RF Technologies:  Research and Applications.  ****
