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
  • Multi-databases, federated databases, parallel, and distributed Databases for MBC
  • Temporal, spatial, and mobile databases for MBC
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery for MBC
  • Context and location sensitive applications
  • RFID and sensor data management for MBC
  • Service Level Agreements (SLA), quality, and reliability
  • Web Services and ontology support for MBC
  • Contents management and man-machine interactions for MBC
  • Agent based technologies for MBC
  • Virtual organizations and supply-chain issues for MBC
  • Trust, reputation, security, and privacy in MBC

We strongly encourage submission of papers bridging the research in different fields and promoting mutual exchange and understanding of cross-field research results.
