The Future Internet has emerged as a new initiative to pave a novel
infrastructure linked to objects (things) of the real world to meet the
changing global needs of business and society. It offers internet users a
standardized, secure, efficient and trustable environment, which allows
open and distributed access to global networks, services and information.

To be consistently adopted, the Future Internet will be enabled through
standards-based notations for messaging, semantics, process and state (such
as those RDF, OWL, SOAP, REST and WS-BPEL), enabling distributed systems
and entities to be described in a scalable and flexible robust dynamic
environment. Multi-tenancy will enable their remote access as Software as a
Service (SaaS), by performing the integration into larger networks of
communicating software (e.g., 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
change: for example, in the provisioning of services, availability of
things and contents, connectivity of networks, diversity of user devices
etc. They should also bear in mind that the Future Internet should provide
a better experience for the user journey, with personalized and
context-aware contents, adapted to their preferences, and where users also
play an active part in creating or sharing services.

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 Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), and the new paradigm Fog
Computing, give 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. Future Internet systems, however, will also
need to sense and respond to a huge amount of signals sourced from
different entities in real-time, and also to manage and exploit the data
coming from different resources and devices. In this context, for example,
an event could be detected if there is non-existence of a signal which
normally occurs, affecting the execution of other services. These events
would be produced by IoT and processed in the IoS. In order to build
business level events Complex Event Processing (CEP) may be used. CEP
allows detecting complex and meaningful events and inferring valuable
knowledge for end users. The main advantage of using CEP to process complex
events is that the latter can be identified and reported in real time,
reducing the latency in decision making, unlike the methods used in
traditional software for event analysis. Event-Driven Service-Oriented
Architectures (ED-SOA or SOA 2.0) are also being used to respond to events
that occur as a result of business processes. Furthermore, including Big
Data Analytics in the IoT world is also interesting, to support autonomous
behavior and self-adaptation of IoT applications and systems, since these
analytics methodologies could be used to exploit the open data exposed by
the smart connected objects existing in domains such as, smart cities,
smart homes, smart trades (commercial environment), e-health monitoring, or
intelligent transportation systems. The results of these analytics
techniques could be used for recommendations or predictions in multiple

The first edition of WAS4FI was held in conjunction with ServiceWave 2011,
in Poznan, Poland, on October 28th 2011. The second edition was held in
conjunction with ESOCC 2012, in Bertinoro, Italy, on September 19th 2012.
The third edition was held in conjunction with ESOCC 2013, in Málaga,
Spain, on September 11th 2013. The fourth edition was also held in
conjunction with ESOCC 2014, in Manchester, United Kingdom, on September
2nd 2014. In this fifth edition, WAS4FI again aims to bring together the
community at ESOCC and addresses different aspects of adaptive Future
Internet applications, emphasizing the importance of governing the
convergence of contents, services, things and networks in order to achieve
building platforms for efficiency, scalability, security and flexible
adaptation. Also, WAS4FI 2015 comes with the intention of discussing about
the real-time exploitation of the data exposed by the heterogeneous
devices, by means of adaptive mechanisms to develop and interoperate
services and applications using those data. In this workshop, we cover the
foundations of the aforementioned technologies as well as new emerging
proposals for their potential in Future Internet services. To promote
collaboration, WAS4FI has a highly interactive format with short technical
sessions complemented by discussions on Adaptive Services in the Future
Internet Applications.


WAS4FI 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 and thus avoiding
disconnection between these groups. Topics of the workshop include, but are
not limited to:

- Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA)
- Cloud Computing Environments (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS)
- Services Mashups Development
