Services computing has emerged rapidly as an exciting new paradigm that offers a challenging model of service computing and poses fascinating problems regarding distributed resource management, ranging from information sharing to cooperative computing. This special issue is intended to foster state-of-the-art research in the area of integration of multimedia and mobility services (MMS), including the topics of collaboration environment, implementation and execution on real-world architectures, and novel applications associated with this new paradigm.

The published papers are expected to present high quality results for tackling problems arising from the ever-growing multimedia and mobility services. This special issue will serve as a landmark source for education, information, and reference to professors, researchers and graduate students interested in updating their knowledge about or active in MMS.
