*** The Symposium ***

The 2018 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real
Time Applications (DS-RT 2018) promises to be a grand affair and will take
place in Madrid, Spain.

DS-RT 2018 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 2018 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 2018 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 enlivened.

The scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to:

Paradigms, Methodology, Algorithms 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

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

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)
