DS-RT 2012 : The 16th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications
Conference Series : Distributed Simulation and Real-Time Applications
Call For Papers
DS-RT provides an international forum for the discussion and presentation of original ideas, recent results and achievements by researchers, students, and systems developers on issues and challenges related to distributed simulation and real time applications.
Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and practical results of significance. Demonstration of new tools/applications is very desirable.
The scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to:
* Paradigms, Methodology and Software Architectures for Large Scale Distributed and Real-Time Simulations (e.g. Parallel and Distributed Simulation, Multi-Agent Based Distributed Simulation, HLA/RTI, Web, Grid and cloud based Simulation, hardware-software co-design for extreme scale simulations)
* Paradigms, Modeling, Architecture and Environments for Large Scale Real-time Systems and Concurrent Systems with hard and soft Real-Time Constraints
* Non-functional Properties of Distributed Simulation and Real-Time Systems (e.g. Dependability, Availability, Reliability, Maintainability, Safety, Security, Trustworthiness, QoS)
* Theoretical Foundations of Large Scale Real-Time and Simulation Models (e.g. Event Systems, Causality, Space-Time Models, Notions of Time, Discrete and Continuous Systems, Simulator Coordination)
* Simulation Studies at Large and Very Large Scale (e.g. Industrial, Commercial, Ecological and Environmental, Societal, Power and Energy, Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing Systems)
* Performance and Validation of Large Scale and Distributed Simulations (e.g., Benchmarking and Analytical Results, Empirical Studies; DIS, HLA/RTI Studies)
* Languages and Tools, Development Environments, Data Interfaces, Network Protocols and Model Repositories that address Very Large Simulations
* Data Management and Distribution Issues, Interest Management, Semantic Modeling, Multi-resolution Modeling, Dead-Reckoning Mechanisms
* Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing Architectures and Applications that involve Simulations and/or adhere to Real-Time Constraints
