2008 Guangdong-Hong Kong RFID Technology Application Summit
23 July 2008 


Co-organized by the LSCM R&D Centre and the Guangdong RFID Technology Service Centre (GDRC) with support and guidance from the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer of the HKSAR Government (OGCIO) and Department of Information Industry of Guangdong Province (GDIID), the "2008 Guangdong-Hong Kong RFID Technology Application Summit" was held on July 23 this year. It aims to foster Hong Kong and Mainland China partnership in promoting RFID adoption and logistics and supply chain enabling technology.


It was our great honor to have Ms. Yanling Wang, Director of GDRC and Dr. Frank Tong, Director of Research and Technology Development of the LSCM R&D Centre, to be our Master of Ceremony in the event. Many important guest speakers from industry and technology partners as well as researchers from both mainland China and Hong Kong were invited to give speeches in the areas of Guangdong-Hong Kong collaborating projects, RFID adoption, research and industrialization.  Another highlight of the event was the panel discussion among the expertise from the technology providers and industry users on the topic of RFID & Sensor-based Technologies for PRD Logistics led by Dr. Terry Ye, Director of Research and Technology Development of the LSCM R&D Centre.  During the panel discussion, both panelists and audiences participated actively in the exchange of views and shared invaluable insights.


The active participation of researchers, technology companies and user groups was truly impressive, hundreds of participants made the Summit a success.



The speeches delivered by the guest speakers 
particularly interested the audience of
industry and technology partners

 Many important guests from OGCIO, LSCM and
   experts from both Hong Kong and mainland
China participated in the event

A new corner sharing the news of our funded projects ...... 


Beginning this month, we are glad to launch a new section in the eNews to introduce the projects funded by the LSCM R&D Centre. In this issue, we would like to provide more information on the newly funded projects in 2008, and continue to share more about the progress and updates of different projects.


With the fast-changing technologies nowadays, only the adoption of the relevant technology could provide the optimal advantage to the players in the logistics and supply chain community to lead the market. Named "A Market Intelligence Study on Enabling Technologies for Industries related to Logistics & Supply Chain Management" (ITP/036/07LP), the project aims to empower the community players in this manner on production and adoption of relevant technologies.


RFID tagging is becoming a necessity in the product packaging industry. "Package-specific RFID Tagging and Embedding Technology" (GHP/046/07LP) is a project that aims to design product specific RFID tags which are tuned and optimized for the packaging materials and different form factors to cope with the current industry needs.


Along with the popular adoption of RFID tags on the products, the consumers are beginning to aware of the privacy and security issues brought by the RFID tags. The project "Trustworthy RFID Technologies: Methodology and Practice" (GHP/044/07LP) will therefore focus to develop a set of trustworthy RFID methodologies for the market.


Utilization of smart containers embedded with RFID and e-seal will become popular as it is crucial for the realization of containerized global supply chains and international green lanes across the world.  A Shenzhen-Hong Kong collaborative project, namely "Interoperability Technology and Applications for Container RFID and e-seal" (GHP/025/07LZ) is aimed to develop smart container with RFID, e-seal, information platform system as well as to do R&D work on corresponding interoperable middleware and gateway technologies.
