                                  WAS4FI 2011

Held in conjunction with ServiceWave 2011 October 28th 2011, Poznan,

                    Paper Submission Due: September 2nd 2011


Future Internet has emerged as a new initiative to pave a novel
infrastructure linked to objects and things of the real world to meet the
changing global needs of business and society.Technologies such as those
based on XML and RDF or OWL to describe data and semantic information, SOAP
or REST to define protocols and BPEL or BPMN to orchestrate business
processes are being increasingly used to specify Future Internet services
in a standardized manner, which will allow software and data no longer to
be stored and distributed on individual computers. Instead, multitenancy
will enable their remote access as Software as a Service (SaaS), even by
performing the integration into larger networks of communicating software
(eg, a mashup or a plug-in to a Cloud platform). Future Internet
applications will have to support the interoperability between many diverse
stakeholders by governing the convergence and life-cycle of Internet of
Contents (IoC), Services (IoS), Things (IoT), and Networks (IoN). These
applications should handle dynamic and continuous changes: for instance, in
the provisioning of services, availability of things and contents,
connectivity of networks, diversity of user devices and so on and so forth.

There is a need for both researchers and practitioners to develop
platforms made up of adaptive Future Internet applications. In this sense,
the emergence and consolidation of Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA),
Cloud Computing and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) rise benefits, such as
flexibility, scalability, security, interoperability, and adaptability, for
building these applications. Although there already are emerging solutions
to host software services and data on remote computers and create public
sensor networks by using these technologies; the mentioned solutions employ
simple technical approaches related to replication strategies to ensure
availability and to achieve a load-balancing scalability. 

The aim of WA4SFI is drawing together the community in ServiceWave
interested in addressing different aspects related to adaptive Future
Internet applications, emphasizing the importance of governing the
convergence of contents, services, things and networks in order to achieve
efficient, scalable, secure and adaptive platforms to build Future Internet
applications. In this workshop, we cover the foundations of the
aforementioned technologies as well as new emerging proposals with a
relevant potential for Future Internet services. To promote collaboration
the WAS4FI workshop has a highly interactive format with short technical
sessions complemented by discussions about Adaptive Services in the Future
Internet Applications.


WAS4FI 2011 encourages a multidisciplinary perspective and welcomes papers
that address challenges of Future Internet applications. Participation of
researchers and practitioners from academia and industry are encouraged in
order to promote cross-community interactions thus avoiding disconnection
between these groups. Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited

- Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA)
- Cloud Computing Environments (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS)
- Services Mashups Development
- Service Discovery, Semantic Web and Ontology
- Secure Data Management and Adaptation, Privacy and Trust
- Self-Adaptive Services and Applications and Autonomic Computing
- Context-Aware, Mobile and Pervasive Adaptive Services on the Cloud

Networks (MANET)
- Service-Oriented Middleware Deployment for Sensor as a Service
- Formal Methods in Services Computing
- SOA Reference Models and Frameworks to Adaptive Services
- Software Service Engineering (SSE) Practices, Case Studies and
Experience Reports
