*** The Symposium ***

For its twentieth anniversary, the 2016 IEEE/ACM International
Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT
2016) promises to be a grand affair and will take place in London, UK.
DS-RT 2016 serves as a platform for simulationists from academia,
industry and research labs for presenting recent research results in
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications.

DS-RT 2016 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 systems.

The conference features prominent invited speakers as well as papers
by top researchers in the field. DS-RT 2016 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, research 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 encouraged.

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

- Advanced modelling techniques (reuse of models, new modelling
languages, agent-based M&S, and spatial M&S)

- 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)

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)

- Algorithms and methods for parallel or distributed simulation
(synchronization, scheduling, memory management, and load balancing)

Network Protocols and Model Repositories that address Very Large

- Data Management and Distribution Issues, Interest Management,
Semantic Modelling, Multi-resolution Modelling, Dead-Reckoning

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