Web services are a major technology for supporting automated interactions between distributed and heterogeneous applications. Various standards are associated with Web services in terms of definition, advertisement to potential users, and binding for invocation purposes. In general, composing Web services rather than accessing a single Web service is essential and provides better benefits to users.

The 2014 edition of the WSS will be organized in Sfax, Tunisia on December 27th and 28th by the Multimedia, and InfoRmation systems and Advanced Computing Laboratory (Mir@cl), Sfax University, Tunisia in partnership with Zayed University.WSS’2014 aims to offer a forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners to present their latest research, results, ideas, developments, and applications of Web services.
