We are organizing a special International Workshop for Mobile Health Services (IW-MOHES), co-located with ICOST 2016, with the aim to tackle particularly challenging issues in this domain of research. We hereby invite researchers working in this domain and interested in participating in this special workshop to submit papers through the ICOST 2016 submission system (EasyChair) using the same procedure and manuscript style (Springer) - please do select the specific workshop topic “Mobile Health Services” from the topics menu so that you submission will be properly handled. We will select several high-quality transactions-style papers from this workshop for direct, fast-track publication with IEEE Trans. on Services Computing (TSC), whereas only a one-page abstract of each selected workshop paper will appear in the 2016 ICOST proceedings. Interested authors please consult with the scope statement of IEEE TSC. For selected papers that will be directly published with IEEE TSC, authors will be asked to confirm their acceptance of such an arrangement, and the papers will need to be converted into IEEE transactions style.

The IW-MOHES will be conducted through intensive discussions led by the lead author(s) of an anchoring paper in each session, together with other related papers. Members of the workshop organizing committee will take turn to be the scribe of each workshop session. The discussion contents and outcomes of IW-MOHES will be captured and edited after the conference, and a summary will be thus developed as the foundation paper for future development of this community.
