Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a fascinating, fast developing and
multidisciplinary domain with emerging technologies and applications. It is characterized
by a variety of research topics, analytical methods, models, protocols, design principles and
processing software. With a relatively large range of applications, RFID enjoys extensive
investor confidence and is poised for growth.
My interest in environmental pollution control microbiology began at MIT in
1948 when I realized that very little was known about this vital area of sanitary
engineering technology. I became a serious student of environmental pollution
control microbiology in 1950 when I began research on the microbiology and
the biochemistry of floe-forming bacteria in activated sludge. I must admit that
environmental pollution control microbiology has been my area of technical
specialization since 1950. It has been a most interesting experience that I have
We will use whether or not the household owns animals, bikes and/or motorbikes. Households living
in the rural part of the municipality might be more prone to own these assets. Moreover, they might
