Call for Papers
Second International Workshop on Business Models for Mobile Platforms (BMMP 10)
held in conjunction with the ICIN 2010 Conference
Berlin, Germany, October 14, 2010
Purpose and Aim
After the successful first edition, and in the wake of a buoyant and turbulent year for mobile service platforms, the 2nd International Workshop on Business Models for Mobile Platforms will take place in conjunction with the ICIN 2010 conference. It will focus on the causes and effects of the current explosion of platforms in the mobile ICT industry. Mobile platforms may refer to various system levels including mobile devices' operating systems, mobile network protocols, mobile services and applications, and so on. Through platform ownership, companies position themselves as central gatekeepers in the mobile industry.
The objective of this workshop is to explore changing business models and industry architectures as a result of the introduction of mobile platforms. The workshop calls for original papers on this central topic. Papers may be of an empirical or of a conceptual nature. They may deal with the characteristics of successful business models in this field, the emergence of new mobile industry architectures, and the competition and collaboration between media, IT, internet and telecommunications companies regarding mobile platforms. The presented research may focus on individual platforms and applications, as well as on cross-platform comparative studies.
The workshop is multidisciplinary, and specifically encourages research papers on the following topics:
* Platform theories, network effects and multi-sided mobile platforms
* Business strategies related to mobile platforms
* New revenue (sharing) models around mobile platforms
* Business models for mobile app stores and mobile search
* Mobile media platforms
* Mobile service platforms for Smart Cities
* Platform models for the Internet of Things
* Standardisation strategies regarding mobile platforms
* Regulatory implications of mobile platforms
* Extended abstract submission deadline: 15 May 2010
* Acceptance notification deadline: 10 June 2010
* Speaker registration deadline: 30 June 2010
* Full paper deadline: 30 July 2010
