22nd IEEE/ACM* International Symposium on
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications

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