Founded in Athens during 2002, ICMB developed to the major international research conference on mobile business with a significant number of researchers and authors contributing state of the art scientific papers in academia. In this paper we examine the state of the ICMB co-authorship network from 2002 to 2013 by applying Social Network Analysis techniques and measures. Our analysis is based on a network model generated by data gathered from papers featured in the aforementioned conferences. Our analysis consists of metrics such as clustering analysis, degree, betweenness centrality measures as well as network component related properties. These measures aim to answer a wide range of questions about collaboration patterns, such as the numbers of papers submitted, coauthorships, and showcase how patterns of collaboration emerge between larger scale, tightly connected node formations of the co-authorship network.
