Track Description:

Mobile computing is becoming the forefront of technological capabilities as we move towards a more ubiquitous society. The goal of this track is to further the existing knowledge of mobile computing and emerging ubiquitous technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: mobile and cloud computing, sensor computing, wireless/mobile computing issues, mobile social networking, global wireless services, business and applications, mobile operating systems and architectures, and 4G wireless networks and systems. This track is also open to the discussion of mobile technology as a disruptive technology to research and discuss how the use of these devices has changed the business environment.

The purpose of this track is to analyze the current status and future developments of ubiquitous and mobile computing technology. Issues such as BYOD are playing an important role as the capabilities of mobile computing continue to increase. Both qualitative and quantitative research is welcome in order to evaluate emerging trends and new technology being developed and implemented in the mobile computing environment.

Due to the rapid advancement of mobile technology along with a variety of mobile applications and services, mobile computing is a part of human’s everyday life. Further mobile commerce (M-commerce) is gaining popularity as a complement to E-commerce. Despite the significance of mobile technology, limited research has been conducted on the security issues on mobile technology. Thus, better understanding of security issues in mobile computing is greatly needed.

This mini-track seeks to make a broad inter-disciplinary contribution to the literature in the area of secure mobile computing. We are interested in original research papers on a broad range of topics related to security issues in mobile computing.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to those on this list:

  • Concepts and theoretical foundations of secure mobile computing
  • Security design, development, and implementation of mobile computing
  • Trust, security, and privacy issues on M-commerce & mobile payment
  • Privacy issues in mobile applications
  • Mobile micro data and big data issue
  • Secure ubiquitous mobile computing
  • Promoting secure behavior in mobile Internet usage
  • Future trends and directions of secure mobile computing
  • Other related topics

Minitrack Description and Call for Papers:
The recent past has seen a proliferation of mobile and cloud computing applications. This trend has created a move toward ubiquitous computing. Along with this proliferation there have been many successes as well as many failures. While the promise of ubiquitous computing offers much in the way of productivity gains and infotainment, security and implementation issues are can limit the ultimate success of mobile and wireless computing. This minitrack is seeking papers that address the successes and challenges of mobile and wireless computing from a theoretical and / or empirical perspective.

Of particular interest for this minitrack are papers that focus on successes and challenges of:

  • Moving applications and data to cloud computing
  • The business perspective of m-commerce
  • The consumer perspective of m-commerce
  • Implementing bring your own device (BYOD)
  • Other relevant issues in ubiquitous computing and commerce

AMCIS 2014 Mini-Track Proposal: IS Leadership Development in Human Capital in Information Systems Track

Chengqi Guo, James Madison University, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

The skyrocketing adoption rate of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) tablet Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is accompanied by growing concern over increasingly complicated and fast developing issues ranging from organizational support to security threats. This mini track, therefore, is to invite cutting edge research and practices that address the latest development of organizational issues related to the adoption/use of tablet PC. The meaning of this topic is twofold: incorporation of mobile/wireless data into computing device requires technical considerations that facilitate business process management. On the other hand, the study of human behavior explores the psychological aspect (e.g., perception of privacy intrusion) of technology use that is essential to risk assessment, choice of infrastructural technologies, and resource management. We welcome conceptual, empirical and practice-oriented research papers. Cross-discipline research is also encouraged to submit.

Mobile SNS

Sanghyun Kim, Kyungpook National University

Today, mobile SNS has become a part of individuals’ daily life, which has substantial impact on users’ social lives and reshaped social relationship. In addition, firms have used mobile SNS to develop sincere relationship with their customers. Therefore, it is important to explore the impact of mobile SNS on individuals and society, as well as the opportunities and challenges toward firms. In this mini track, we welcome academic and practical studies addressing various topics related to Mobile SNS.
