Call For Papers

The 1st edition of SEMUT - Simulation and Emulation for Tactical Environments and Networks workshop, co-located with the IEEE Military Communications Conference (MILCOM 2023)

30 October – 3 November 2023 // Boston, MA, USA

Scope and topics

Standard testing and evaluation methodologies of modern military operations require the deployment of expensive assets and increasing logistical resources. This calls for the development of simulated/emulated scenarios that can reproduce operation environments, connectivity, assets’ movement, communication patterns, and adversarial activities with fidelity. The reproduction of a realistic proving ground of this kind is a non-trivial and error-prone process due to the complexity of each of these factors.

This session addresses topics of interest for the emulation/simulation of military capabilities, with a special focus on comprehensive tools capable of concurrently emulating multiple facets of the battlefield and the generation of realistic, reproducible scenarios with enough variety to prevent the tested solutions from specializing on selected artificial data.

The workshop is also open to the field of trials and measurements to be used to parameterize/configure emulation environments considering that having good models or distribution functions for parameters can significantly increase the realism of tactical scenario emulation.
