    Dear Andrea,

    we're glad to notify you the acceptance of your paper. 150 Logic Programming as a Service (LPaaS): Intelligence for the IoT

    You are strongly required to fulfil the reviewers' comments as we will double check the camera ready paper. We advise you to start soon working on the revised version of your paper.

    Instructions on how to submit your final paper are here: http://icnsc2017.dimes.unical.it/submit.html

    The final version of your paper *must* have a percentage of overlapping with previous publications less than 30%.

    The camera ready paper deadline is 15th of March, no extension will be granted. 

    Papers must be registered before their final submission. Papers without registration will not be accepted and will be rejected. Registration is already open: http://icnsc2017.dimes.unical.it/register.html

    If you need to apply for a VISA to come in Italy (http://icnsc2017.dimes.unical.it/visa.html) please contact Dr. Andrea Vinci and/or Dr. Antonio Guerrieri (at the email of the conference: icnsc2017@easychair.org) who will provide you with what you need such as certifications and invitation letters.

    Congratulations and looking forward to meet you in Calabria next May.

    Best,

    The General Chair.

     Overall evaluation 

    Overview: Authors define the Logic Programming as a Service (LPaaS) as the natural evolution of distributed logic programming within the IoT context, aiming at tackling its increasingly complex demand for distributed situated intelligence. Some application scenarios are introduced, followed by the LPaaS architecture, its implementation and a simulated case study (pertaining a domestic smart environment, the Smart Bathroom). Work is valuable and ready to be accepted, just a couple of issues as well as some minors need to be addressed. Pros: motivations, application scenarios and approach are well presented, proposal is scientifically and technically sound, overall style is good, references are adequate. Cons: In Sec. II authors illustrate the suitability of their approach in some application scenarios. However, authors do not explicitly state if related work are currently available or if their proposal is the first one in the field. Hence, authors should better clarify this point. Authors should also reformulate the following statement “For the service to be able of supporting time-sensitive methods, it is required to be time-aware, that is, conscious that computation takes time, and that regardless of whether it is computing or idle, time flows”. Finally, authors specify that “all the data collected by sensors are simulated”: however, it is not clear how the Raspberry Pi (i.e., which kind of sensors) may realize the Toilet Server consisting in “analysing biological products”. Hence, authors should better clarify this point. Minors: • Please edit “e.g.” in “e.g.,” and “i.e.” in “i.e.,” (multiple occurrences) • Please edit “…” in “etc.” (multiple occurrences) • IoT acronym has been used without being introduced. Please introduce it • Please edit “KB can possibly” in “KB can” • Please edit “allow the service to be queried” in “allow querying the service” • Please edit “if the resolution process does not complete within the specified time the request is cancelled” in “if the resolution process does not complete within the specified time, then the request is cancelled” • Please edit “Notice that since these data are expected to be rather limited in size for the majority of envisioned scenarios we choose to keep it in the server application” in “Notice that, since these data are expected to be rather limited in size for the majority of envisioned scenarios, we choose to keep them in the server application” • Table II title should be simply “LPaaS Client Interface” and the other contents moved as caption below the table itself • Please edit “warning (green box)” in “warnings (green box)” • In Fig.6, edit app title in “Smart Bathroom App” instead of “My Test” and separate the 2 screenshots with a white strip. Moreover, close the final bracket within the caption • Please edit “a Smart Bathroom equipped with sensors to monitor physiological functions” in “a Smart Bathroom to monitor physiological functions”. Indeed, since it is smart environment, it is supposed to be equipped with augmentation devices • Punctuation missing after “etc” in “Collected data may trigger different alerts: urgent ones, such as presence of Streptococcus infection, positive Diabetes Tests, etc. and normal ones, such as the need to drink more water, recharge batteries, and so on.” • Please report sitography in page footnotes (e.g., 9, 10, 20, 21, etc.) instead of in bibliography, so reducing the number of references • To motivate the statement “connectivity and interoperability are just the basic – yet fundamental – brick” authors may report the following work “Aloi, G., et al. "Enabling IoT interoperability through opportunistic smartphone-based mobile gateways." Journal of Network and Computer Applications (2016).”

     Overall evaluation 

    Interesting paper in the area of Smart IoT systems programming. The proposal is sound even though tested in a laboratory context, so hopefully I'd like to see it in a more concrete testbed. As the proposal is in the direction of making smart the next generation IoT, I suggest to consider, among the related works, the ones on agent-based IoT. Please consider therefore the following references that could be useful to you to better contextualise your proposal for possible readers:
