The TAPPI Boot Camp and RFID Symposium, June 6-8, 2006, will explore the latest developments in cutting-edge RFID applications for the pulp, paper, packaging, and converting industries. The one-day boot camp is a pre-symposium workshop, intended for beginners to RFID, which will focus on the fundamentals of the RFID ecosystem. The two-day symposium is comprised of two tracks—one for paper industry personnel and one for converting industry personnel. Both events will be held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia.
