ICMB 2013

Mobile business changed a lot in the last twelve years, rising from a niche topic - all the way along the Gartner hype cycle - to one of the most relevant issues for many of today's businesses and researchers. Mobility changes users' daily lives in its private as well as in its professional part. Mobile business created own ecosystems, constantly changes them and even begins to change existing ecosystems in the real world, redistributing market power in consumer-oriented industries and revolutionizing business processes in all industries that include mobility aspects or mobile workers. In the future, we will see mobility as the invisible norm.

Founded in 2002 in Athens, ICMB developed to the major international research conference on mobility and mobile business. It included scenes such as New York, Sydney and Dalian. The 2013 edition will take place in Berlin, Germany, from 10-13 June 2013 and will be hosted by the wi-mobile Research Group of the University of Augsburg, together with the SIG Mobility and Mobile IS of the German Informatics Society (GI). The conference is aimed at addressing a key theme on „Mobility — the invisible norm“.

The core of ICMB 2013 is a two-day academic conference program. Acceptance of submitted papers will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Further ICMB 2013 events will be a complementary workshop program, a doctoral consortium with renowned scholars and an industry program including company visits in Berlin. ICMB 2013 will be co-located with MMS 2013, the national conference on Mobility and Mobile IS of the German Informatics Society.

ICMB 2013 is an AIS-affiliated conference. Proceedings of ICMB 2013 will be made available on AIS Electronic Library (AISeL). There will be a journal special issue for outstanding papers, negotiations are underway.
