Mobile  Commerce (M-Commerce)    comprises applications  and  services
that  are  accessible    from    Internet-enabled   mobile    devices.
It  involves    new  technologies,  services,  and   business  models.
Whilst  it  is  different from traditional e-Commerce it can  also  be
considered as   an extension  of it   since, among  other  reasons, it
makes e-Commerce   available, in   a modern   way, to  new application
areas and to a new set  of customers. Mobile devices, such as   phones
or PDAs open the  door to a great  assortment of new applications  and
services. They follow  you wherever   you go,  enabling us  to  access
the  Internet  at  any moment  under  any  circumstances  letting  you
access  several  different  services should  they be   necessary (i.e
looking  for a nearby  restaurant or gas  station while walking   down
the   street with   friends and   family). These  new situations  also
imply new engineering requirements, as well as fresh development tools
and methodologies.

The  Internet has  become an  essential component  in all  aspects  of
our   life independently  of our  location, the  time  of  the day  or
environment. In  the same line, already today, mobile phones and  PDAs
have become  an indispensable  part of  our life  as a  source of  all
kinds of information and services  and, especially, as our permanently
available  interface to  our environment.  Under this   scenario, the
number of   mobile services  available  is  constantly increasing  and
evolving towards manageable and practical applications. Tomorrow, they
may  very   well  turn   into   intelligent   assistants   capable  of
anticipating many   of our   wishes  and  needs; but,   for all  these
changes   to  happen,   key  issues  of  interoperability,  usability,
security  and privacy  still need  to be  addressed under the  special
scope of  mobile services  and  commerce.  Tamoco main  conference has
been divided into  five different  tracks, as  follows:

-- Track 1: Web Services for Mobile Devices
-- Track 2: Mobile Learning and Mobile Technology for Education
-- Track 3: Mobile Technologies in Urban Systems
-- Track  4:  Context   Aware   Services   and   Mobile   Information
   Systems  for  the Extended  Enterprise
-- Track 5: Autonomic Computing for Mobile Commerce

A PhD symposium will be collocated with the conference on the 15th  of
September. Further  information  on  every  track  can be found at the
