Workshop Duration: One Day Workshop

Workshop Theme:

The wide deployment of wireless networks and mobile technologies and the significant increase
in the number of mobile device users have created a very strong demand for emerging mobile 
commerce applications and services based on today’s wireless network technologies. 

This trend has provided many new business opportunities and challenges to e-commerce vendors, 
mobile service providers, mobile content publishers and marketplaces, mobile technology providers 
and solution integrators. Living in a wireless world changes and enhances people’s life in many ways,
such as communications, information sharing and learning, e-commerce and mobile application services. 

At the same time, businesses and government agencies are confronted with new pressure for technology 
update, that is, how to provide customers and users with reliable and secure mobile commerce applications
and efficient and user-friendly mobile services.

To meet this increasing demand on mobile commerce and mobile services, people are looking for
innovative ideas to create next generation mobile-commerce applications and service systems. 
Mobile commerce and services has become a very hot research subject in both business and research
communities. The major theme of this workshop is to study new business models, emerging mobile 
technology, and engineering methods to build the next generation of mobile commerce service systems 
supporting mobile users anywhere at anytime.

The 6th International Workshop on Mobile Commerce and Services (WMCS2010) is a forum to bring 
together business people, researchers, scientists, software architects, and industry professionals 
to discuss innovative ideas and diverse topics on next generation of mobile-commerce and services. 
Using this forum, researchers and practitioners can exchange issues, challenges, new business models 
and structures, and new technologies and solutions.Researchers and practitioners are invited to 
submit original and research papers addressing business 
and technical issues, challenges, solutions, and technologies in building wireless-based software 
systems and applications. 

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the members of the international program committee. 
Accepted paper will be included in the GPC2010 workshop proceedings.

Workshop History and Likely Participants: 

Since 2004, we have successfully organized and delivered a number of international workshops
(WMCS2004, WMCS2005, WMCS2006, EMOBS07, WMCS2008, and WMCS2009) onthe same subject. 
The workshop aims at attracting both researchers from academic and industrial institutions 
and practitioners from industry. 


Original papers that are not published previously or under review by other journals or conferences 
will be considered. All submitted papers will be evaluated according to their originality, significance, 
correctness, presentation and relevance. The URL link of WMCS2010 workshoppaper
