               Call for Papers - DS-RT 2017

         21st IEEE/ACM International Symposium on
      Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications
            October 18 - 20, 2017, Rome, Italy

IMPORTANT:  Submission deadline (FIRM): May 26th, 2017


*** The Symposium ***

The 2017 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and
Real Time Applications (DS-RT
2017) promises to be a grand affair and will take place in London, UK.
DS-RT 2017 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 2017 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 2017 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

- 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

Protocols and Model Repositories that address Very Large

- 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
