About these proceedings


Mobile Information Systems

Edited by Elaine Lawrence, Barbara Pernici, John Krogstie

Mobility is perhaps the most important market and technological trend within information and communication technology. With the advent of new mobile infrastructures providing higher bandwidth and constant connection to the network from virtually everywhere, the way people use information resources is predicted to be radically transformed.

The rapid developments in information technology (IT), particularly communication and collaboration technologies, are substantially changing the landscape of organizational computing. Workers in any business area are becoming increasingly mobile. Workers in an increasing number of areas will be required to act flexibly within the constraints of the business processes of the company (or companies) for which they are currently working. At the same time they will often want to use the same information technology to support their private tasks.

Over the last years, a new breed of information systems has appeared to address this emerging situation, referred to as mCommerce systems or mobile information systems.

This book contains the proceedings of the IFIP TC8 Working Conference on Mobile Information Systems, which was held in September 2004 in Oslo, Norway and sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP).

Mobile Information Systems aims to:

Clarify differences and similarities between the development of mobile vs. more traditional information system.

Investigate the organizational impact of mobile information systems

Investigate mCommerce relative to eCommerce

Investigate mobile commerce applications combined with the advantages of mobile communications technologies, the drivers of which have been identified as ubiquity, reachability, security, convenience, localization, instant connectivity and personalization.

Evaluate existing and newly developed approaches for analysis, design, implementation, and evolution of mobile information systems.

Investigate technical issues and the constraints they pose on mobile information systems functionalities and design
