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 (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 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 first edition of WAS4FI 2011 was held in conjunction with ServiceWave 2011, in Poznan, Poland, on 28th October 2011. In this second edition, the aim of WAS4FI is drawing together the community in ESOCC 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.
