Call For Papers

= Aims and Scope =

The recent advancement of workflow technologies and adoption of the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has much facilitated the automation of business collaboration within and across organizations to increase their competiveness and responsiveness to the fast evolving global economic environment. The widespread of mobile technologies has further resulted in an increasing demand for the support of Mobile Business Collaboration (MBC) across multiple platforms anytime and anywhere. Examples include supply-chain logistics, group calendars, and dynamic human resources planning. As mobile devices become more powerful, the adoption of mobile computing is imminent. However, mobile business collaboration is not merely porting the software with an alternative user interface, but rather involves a wide range of new requirements, constraints, and technical challenges.

= Topics of Interest =

This event intentionally seeks scientists, engineers, educators, industry people, policy makers, decision makers, and others who have insight, vision, and understanding of the big challenges in Mobile Business Collaboration. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the theoretical, technical, or empirical

aspects of the following:

Principles, theories, models, challenges, legal, and social issues of MBC

MBC requirements, design, implementation, and case studies

Inter- and Intra-organizational integration for mobile platforms

Mobile databases, services, and workflows
