Techniques and Applications for Mobile Commerce (TAMoCo'13)
Kraków, Poland, September 8-11, 2013
Mobile Commerce (M-Commerce) comprises applications and services that are accessible from Internet-enabled mobile devices. It involves new technologies, services, and business models. Whilst it is different from traditional e-Commerce it can also be considered as an extension of it since, among other reasons, it makes e-Commerce available, in a modern way, to new application areas and to a new set of customers.
Mobile devices, such as smart phones or tablets, open the door to a great assortment of new applications and services. This may also include new types of specific application settings such as medical environments, industrial workspaces, process monitoring, automatics and diagnostics or measurement activities in remote and distributed environments. Location, other context information and personal data are used to tailor services directly to the needs of the user. This leads to pervasive environments in which users can always access the Internet. While this seems to be a good development it also means that privacy concerns become more and more important.
The goal of TAMOCO is to bring together researchers and practitioners that work in different aspects of mobile services in the context of business and industrial applications. This includes the incorporation of web services and cloud-based services, autonomic mobile computing, and the integration and interplay with urban systems, industrial settings, medical environments and other contexts. Also, application areas such as mobile learning, human centred design, ubiquitous computing and extended enterprise are covered. Finally, security is perhaps the most important factor for the success of mobile commerce and mobile applications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Tools, technologies, platforms and infrastructure for mobile networks and applications
- Concepts and methods for evaluating problems and the usefulness of mobile technologies
- Maintenance and management of distributed, remote sensing systems in industrial workspaces
- Autonomic middleware for mobile computing
- Mobile learning theories, games and simulation
- Analysis and Design of mobile web-service based applications
- Enabling technologies for ubiquitous systems (mobility, interconnectivity, pervasiveness as well as personal and body area handheld devices examples)
- Governance models of mobile computation
- User experience, user interface design and user studies for mobile devices and systems
- Human factors and user centred design in mobile technology applications
- Collaborative, cooperative and contextual mobile learning
- Pedagogical and social issues as well as cultural and regional differences in mobile learning
- Integration of mobile solutions in urban infrastructure
- Measurement, control, and evaluation of urban infrastructure by mobile solutions
