Techniques and Applications for Mobile Commerce (TAMoCo 2012)
Wrocław, Poland, September 9-12, 2012
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. 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.
The goal of TAMOCO is to bring together researchers and practitioners that work in different aspects of mobile services in the context of business applications. 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 mobile learning and extended enterprise are covered.
