 The 6th International Workshop on
Mobile Commerce and Services (WMCS2010)
http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/wmcs/
in cooperation with 
The 5thInternational Conference on Gridand Pervasive Computing(GPC2010)
May10-14, 2010, Hualien, Taiwan
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.
Goals:
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 GPC2010workshop 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. The subject of this workshop has sincebecomea hot research topic. We expect to receive 30-60 submissions, and accept 10-20 papers. This predication is based on based on our experience in organizing past workshops WMCS2005, WMCS2006, WMCS 2008,and WMCS2009.
Submission:
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 linkof WMCS2010workshoppaper submission http://edas.info/index.php?c=8345For format and style guidelines authors should refer to: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0The authors should prepare their final paper according to the instructions.Manuscripts will be limited to 8-12pages following LNCSconference proceedings style and guidelines. Papers that present novel ideas, criticize existing work, and discuss practical studies and experiments are especially encouraged. 
Accepted papers will be published in LNCS by Springer. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper published in the proceedings.
Workshop Format:
The workshop will consist of four sessions, each 95 minutes of duration. The first session will start with a welcome and an introduction to the general topics of the workshop. This session will also include an overview of the presentations which will be given during the workshop. After this welcome and introduction part, the technical part of the workshop will start. The technical part will contain the presentations. After the technical part in the last session, the presentations and also discussions will be briefly summarized. Besides a summary of presentations discussions, the last session will also include a roadmap for further work which will aim at initiating cooperation among the attendees of the workshop.
Each presentation will be 20 minutes in length with additional 5 minutes for discussions and questions so that in each session 4 papers will be presented. Taking into account the welcome/introduction in the first session and the summary/roadmap in the last session, the workshop will host 14 presentations.
Expected Achievements:
The organizers intend to achieve an overview of the current research in the area of engineering wireless-based systems and applications. Furthermore, a roadmap will be developed together with the attendees of the workshop with the goal ofinitiatingcooperation among the attendees. Selected best papers will be published in Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research.
