Call For Papers

*** The Symposium ***

The 2020 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real-Time Applications (DS-RT 2020) promises to be a grand affair and will take place in Prague, Czech Republic. DS-RT 2020 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 2020 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 2020 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 Constraints

- 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)

- 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)

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

- 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 Modelling, Multi-resolution Modelling, Dead-Reckoning Mechanisms

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