4th International Workshop on Adaptive Services for the Future Internet (WAS4FI 2014): Preface
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. 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) give benefits, such as flexibility, scalability, security, interoperability, and adaptability, for building these applications.
