15th IEEE/ACM* International Symposium on
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications
September 4-7, 2011
MediaCITYUK, Salford, nr Manchester, UK
* IEEE/ACM pending approval
Submission Deadline: April 15, 2011
In its fifteenth year, the 2011 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT 2011) will take place in MediaCITYUK, Salford, near Manchester, UK
*** Symposium Objectives
DS-RT 2011 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 2011 targets the growing overlap between large distributed simulations and real time applications, such as mirror world simulations and collaborative virtual environments.
The conference features prominent invited speakers as well as papers by top researchers in the field. DS-RT 2011 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 and Grid based Simulation);
o Paradigms, Modelling, Architecture and Environments for Large Scale Real-time Systems and Concurrent Systems with hard and soft Real-Time Constraints;
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, Pervasive 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 Simulations;
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 Graphics;
o Design Issues, Interaction Designs, Human Computer 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, Ecosystems, Sustainable Development, Water and Energy Supply, Human Mobility, Air Traffic, World Stock Markets, Food Supply Chains, Megacities, Disaster Planning, etc.).
