TAMoCo 2012 : Techniques and Applications for Mobile Commerce
Conference Series : Techniques and Applications for Mobile Commerce
Call For Papers
Mobile Commerce (M-Commerce) comprises applications and services that are accessible from mobile devices. It involves new technologies, services, and business models as well as the traditional telecommunication infrastructure and industry. Mobile devices, such as smart phones or tablets, open the door to a great assortment of new applications and services. Location and other context information is used to tailor services according to the needs of the user. The number of mobile services available is constantly increasing and evolving towards manageable and practical applications, for private use as well as in an enterprise context. On the other hand, the services provided by the telecom operators around the globe require continuous reinventing and upgrading of data centers, networks and software.
The goal of TAMOCO is to bring together researchers and practitioners that work in different aspects of mobile services and telecommunication in the context of business applications and commercial implementation.
This includes the incorporation of web services and cloud-based services, autonomic mobile computing, and the integration and interplay with urban systems and other contexts. Additionally, application areas such as e.g. mobile learning and extended enterprise are covered.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Analysis and Design of mobile web-service based applications
Design and programming techniques for web-service based systems
Applications of emergent self-organization
Autonomic middleware for mobile computing
Measurement, control, and evaluation of urban infrastructure
Integration of mobile solutions in urban infrastructure
