I want to create Provider Hosted App for Convert Word document into PDF document. I have Created Provider Hosted App in SharePoint 2013 On-premises and it is hosted on Azure Hosting environment. Can I get SharePoint Context in my app? And Can I call Word Automation Service from my Provider Hosted App?

Using Word Automation Services in Provider Hosted App app Part is not possible as the Word Automation Services doesn't support CSOM or RESTful access by default .

This can be achieved by creating a custom RESTful service ,

Please refer this which is having a demo on the same requirement: https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/office/SharePoint-2013-Convert-1e0578a1

and as far as getting the SharePoint Context in Provider Hosted App its pretty much possible with the use of the methods in SharePointContext.cs and TokenHelper.cs files.
