  The Fourth International Workshop on Mobile Commerce and Services (WMCS 2008)  URL: http//www.engr.sjsu.edu/wmcs  in conjunction with the Third International Conference on Grid and Pervasive Computing (GPC-2008) (http://grid.hust.edu/cn/gpc2008/index.htm)  Kunming, China, May 25-28.   
  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 and use new business models and structures to build the next 
  generation of mobile commerce service systems supporting mobile users anywhere at anytime.
   
  Goals
   
  The Fourth International Workshop on Mobile Commerce and Services (WMCS 2008) is a forum to bring

  researchers and practitioners can exchange issues, challenges, new business models and structures, and new 
  technologies and solutions.
