International Workshop on Mobile and Location-based Business Applications (MAPPS2010)

Workshop theme

Location-based Services (LBS) are becoming more and more important for business. Central to LBS are location and context information as well as mechanisms to use such information including navigation, tracking and resource planning for better usage of resources. The deployment of such LBS faces the problems of privacy and security as well as the multiplicity of the mobile platforms and also the difficulties for back-end and workflow integration. Location to Business (L2B) communication includes all these aspects of processes and technologies which are needed to explore location information and mobile technologies for successful integration to business applications. Such mobile business applications extend standard business applications and they are of great interest in application programming interfaces and management.

This one-day workshop intends to bring together researchers, professionals and practitioners to discuss and address recent developments and challenges for the design, operation and backend integration of mobile business applications.


Specifically, we solicit original research contributions in the following areas:

All accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of 12 single-column pages including all figures, tables and references. All papers must be formatted using Springer LNICST Authors' Kit. The paper submission system for the workshop will be open from March 15, 2010. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register for the main conference and to give a presentation on site. Paper submission for MAPPS 2010 is handled electronically. Please visit the MyReview submission system to submit your paper.
