SCNF at RFID Europe - Libraries and ID Management

The Smart Card Networking Forum is running a public sector stream at the RFID Europe conference on 30th Sept in Cambridge. This year we will focus on libraries and personal identity.

SCNF members are invited to register and attend the event free of charge. For more information see the SCNF website (, RFID Europe ( and email The venue is on the edge of town and has sufficient parking for delegates.

Aside from the whole programme on RFID technology, there will be a presentation by Dudley Council on their use of RFID and the event is sponsored by Axiell (formerly known for the DS Galaxy library management system). This is an excellent event to find out about the use of RFID technology for loan items, smart memberships cards and cashless payment.

The public sector stream will also include a speaker from DWP about meeting the needs of an ageing society, an update on technology which makes it easier for partially sighted to use library computers and Lord Erroll talking about the requirements and risks of identity management in society.

I am confident you will find this a very interesting programme which will be complemented by the opportunity to network with other forum members and sponsors of the Forum.

Spaces are limited, so please let us know if you are interested in joining the event. You are also invited to register on the SCNF website so you can access all of the forum information and keep up to date with news and developments.
