Workshop Theme:
The wide deployment of wireless mobile technologies and the significant increase 
in the number of mobile device users have created a very strong demand for 
emerging mobile commerce and healthcare 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, mobile technology providers and solution integrators. Living in a 
wireless 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 technology update, that is, how to provide customers and users with 
reliable and secure mobile applications and efficient and user-friendly mobile 
services.To meet this increasing demand on mobile services, people are looking 
for innovative ideas to create next generation mobile servicesand systems. 
Mobile service hasbecome 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 and healthcare servicesand systems supporting 
mobile users anywhere at anytime.

The 7th International Workshop on Mobile Commerce and Healthcare Services 
(WMCS2011) 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 mobile commerce and 
healthcare 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 mobile wirelesssoftware 
systems and applications. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the members 
of the international program committee. Accepted paper will be included in the 
SUComS2011workshop proceedings.
