Call for Papers - DS-RT 2013

17th IEEE/ACM* International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real
Time Applications
                  October 30 - November 1, 2013
                  Delft, Netherlands

* IEEE/ACM pending approval

*** The Symposium ***

In its seventeenth year, the 2013 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT 2013) will take
place in Delft, Netherlands.
DS-RT 2013 serves as a forum for simulationists from academia, industry and
research labs, for presenting recent research results in Distributed
Simulation and Real Time Applications.
DS-RT 2013 targets the growing overlap between large distributed
simulations and real time applications, such as collaborative virtual
environments, pervasive and
ubiquitous application scenarios, motor-, controller-, sensor- and actuator

The conference features prominent invited speakers as well as papers by top
researchers in the field. DS-RT 2013 will include contributed technical
papers, invited papers, and panel discussions. The proceedings will be
published by IEEE-CS press.

*** 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:

o 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)

o Paradigms, Modelling, Architecture and Environments for Large Scale
Real-time Systems and
    Concurrent Systems with hard and soft Real-Time Contstraints

o Non-functional Properties of Distributed Simulation and Real-Time Systems
    (e.g. Dependability, Availability, Reliability, Maintainability,
Safety, Security, Trustworthiness, QoS)

o 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)

o Simulation Studies at Large and Very Large Scale
  (e.g. Industrial, Commercial, Ecological and Environmental, Societal,
Power and Energy, P
          ervasive and Ubiquitous Computing Systems)

o Performance and Validation of Large Scale and Distributed Simulations
    (e.g., benchmarking and analytical results, empirical studies DIS,
HLA/RTI studies;

o Languages and Tools, Development Environments, Data Interfaces,
  Network Protocols and Model Repositories that address Very Large

o Data Management and Distribution Issues, Interest Management,
   Semantic Modeling, Multi-resolution Modeling, Dead-Reckoning Mechanisms

o Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing Architectures and Applications that
   involve Simulations and/or adhere to Real-Time Constraints

o Simulation based Virtual Environments and Mixed Reality Systems
    (e.g. Interactive Virtual Reality, Human Communication through
Immersive Environments)

o Collaborative Virtual and Augmented Reality, Shared Interaction Spaces,
    Telepresence Systems and Shared Workspaces, 3D Video and Acoustic
Reconstruction, Shared Object Manipulation

o Serious Gaming and Massive Multiplayer Online Games (MMOG) applications,
architectures and scalability issues.

o Visual Interactive Simulation Environments
   (e.g., Generic Animation, Visual Interactive Modeling, Interactive
Computer Based Training and
             Learning; Scientific Visualization; High-End Computer

o Design Issues, Interaction Designs, Human Commuter Interaction Issues
raised by Large Scale DS-RT Systems

o Media Convergence
   (e.g. New Technologies, Media Theory, Real-Time considerations of Multi
Modality, etc.)

o Innovative Styles of Interactions with Large Scale DS-RT Systems
    (e.g. Implicit, Situative and Attentive Interaction, Tangible
Interaction, Embedded Interaction, etc.)

o Technologies for Living Labs
   (e.g. Mirror World Simulation, Interoperability, Large Scale Multi
Sensor Networks,
           Global Wireless Communication, Multi Stakeholder Understanding
and Innovation)

o Environmental and Emerging Simulation Challenges
   (e.g. Growth of Human Population, Climate Change, CO2, Health Care,
            Sustainable Development, Water and Energy Supply, Human
Mobility, Air Traffic, World Stock Markets,
             Food Supply Chains, Megacities, Smart Cities, Disaster
Planning, etc.)

o Advanced Simulation Studies and Technologies (Discrete event, continuous
Simulation, etc..)
