GSMA issues call for papers for MWC 2013

July 9, 2012

You have until September 7th 2012 to get your proposal in

The GSMA, which organises Mobile World Congress (MWC), has just issued a call for papers to be given at the next conference and exhibition. This event will take place between 25th-28th February 2013.Anyway, if you want to submit a proposal for inclusion in the mobile/cellular industry’s biggest global event, then you can click here.The organiser claims the conference programme at Mobile World Congress will reflect the latest developments in the mobile industry. So it’s interesting to see the GSMA’s  list of what it regards as being important.

Countdown2MWC thought the organiser had put mobile advertising at the top of the list until we realised it was alphabetic!

We’re also not sure whether the all-important M2M (machine-to-machine) sector is covered by ‘ Embedded Mobile – Automotive, Consumer Electronics’. But we predict that M2M will be big in 2013.

We also wonder if Telefonica/Mozilla will wait until MWC before launching the first Firefox OS powered handset given that Telefonica said it should appear in Q1 2013.

So here is the list of the Mobile World Congress 2013’s hot topic areas: –

• Advertising/Marketing
• Applications
• Business Models – Segmentation and Pricing
• Cloud Services
• Converged Networks
• Devices – Mass Market Devices and Media Tablets
• Economic/Social Impact of Mobile
• Embedded Mobile – Automotive, Consumer Electronics
• Enterprise Strategies
• Intelligent Networks
• Internet Services
• Location-based Services
• Mobile Health
• Mobile Innovation
• Mobile Money
• Near Field Communication (NFC)
• Network Management Strategies
• Next-Generation Networks
• Retail in Mobile
• Security
• Social Media
• Strategies for Growth – Joint Ventures, M&A
• Video
