world changes and enhances people’s life in many ways, such as communications,

learning, e-commerce,telemedicine and telehealthcareservices. At the same time, 

businesses and government agencies are confronted with new pressure for 

update, that is, how to provide customers and users with reliable and secure 

applications and efficient and user-friendly mobile services. 

To meet this increasing demand on mobile services, people are looking for 

ideas to create next generation mobile servicesand systems. Mobile service has

become a very hot research subject in both business and research communities. 

major theme of this workshop is to study new business models, emerging mobile 

technology, and engineering methods to build the next generation of mobile 

and healthcare servicesand systems supporting mobile users anywhere at anytime.

(WMCS2011) is a forum to bring together business people, researchers, 

software architects, and industry professionals to discuss innovative ideas and 

topics on next generation mobile commerce and healthcare services. Using this 

researchers and practitioners can exchange issues, challenges, new business 

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
