***********************************************************************

 Enterprise market constitutes a very large share of the ICT sector.
 Normal market segmentation differentiates between big corporations for
 which tailored solutions can be offered and SMEs, businesses and
 professionals, for which generic solutions are designed, taking into
 account the so called long tail effect.

 In the ICT era of the 21st century, mobile services have a promising
outlook. Companies are no longer static, premises based. On the contrary
 they have full mobility needs, with global customers that can be based
 worldwide, a growing number of remote offices that need to be
 interconnected, teleworkers that work from home, employees that are
 always travelling, longer times out of office, etc.

 On the other hand mobile technologies have evolved significantly over
 the last years improving the performance offered to users: mobile
 broadband thanks to 3.5G and beyond with growing coverage for several
 Mbps bandwidth; more powerful mobile handsets that support more complex
 applications and offer better user interfaces including larger screens
 and new features like embedded GPS, NFC,&; a massive penetration of
 mobile data telephony specially in the enterprise; smaller and lighter
 laptops at decreasing prices; maturity of IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem)
 for telco grade IP communications, etc.

 Given this starting point where workers have permanent access to email
 in the mobile, and full remote desktop connectivity with laptops and
 VPNs in this special issue we will go beyond with current research
 activities related to future enterprise mobility with a total focus on
 services and applications. Among the different existing vertical
 enterprise markets special attention will be given to wireless eHealth
 applications.

 Original, unpublished contributions will be considered for the issue in
 any of, but not limited to, the following or related topic areas:
 * Mobile convergent communications (IMS Corporate services)
 * Wireless eHealth
 * Networked applications
 * Telework and mobile desktop
 * Mobile enterprise 2.5: collaboration, semantics,&
 * Mobile grids
