About Conference:

The wide deployment of wireless/GSM networks and mobile technologies and the significant increase in the number of mobile device users have created a very strong demand for emerging systems, platforms, applications and services based on today’s wireless/GSM network and mobile technologies. This trend has provided many new business opportunities and challenges to device vendors, mobile service providers, mobile content publishers and marketplaces, mobile technology providers and solution integrators. Living in a wireless world dramatically changes and enhances people’s life in many ways, such as communications, information sharing and learning, e-commerce and mobile application services. At the same time, businesses and government agencies are confronted with new pressure for technology update, that is, how to provide customers and users with reliable and secure mobile applications and efficient and user-friendly mobile services. The world is witnessing a revolution in mobile and computing technologies which will transform all handheld devices into small computers with multimedia, web browsing and gaming capabilities, and desktop work environments with office software, in addition to the usual telephony on mobile networks and the Internet.

The TeliaSonera Eurasia Conference on Mobile Technologies for Social Change (MTSC), which will be hosted by Azercell Telecom LLC – leading mobile operator of Azerbaijan in collaboration with Qafqaz University, comes as a response to this challenge.
