**** Scope

In its twelth anniversary, the 2008 IEEE International Symposium on
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT 2008) will
take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in conjunction with
the 11th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Modeling, Analysis and
Simulation
of Wireless and Mobile Systems (MSWiM 2008).


**** Symposium Objectives

DS-RT 2008 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 2008 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 2008 will include contributed
technical papers,
invited papers, and panel discussions. The proceedings will be published
by IEEE-CS
press.


**** Call for Papers

DS-RT is intended to provide 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
   (like 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 Contstraints

o- Non-functional Properties of Distributed Simulation and Real-Time
   Systems (like e.g. Dependability, Availability, Reliability,
   Maintainability, Safety, Security, Trustworthiness, QoS)

o- Theoretical Foundations of Large Scale Real-Time and Simulation
   Models (Event Systems, Causality, Space-Time Models, Notions of Time,
   Discrete and Continuous Systems, Simulator Coordination)

o- Simulation Studies at Large and Very Large Scale
   (like 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
   (like e.g., benchmarking and analytical results, empirical
   studies; DIS, HLA/RTI studies;

o- Languages and Tools, Development Environments, Data Interfaces,
   Network Protocols and Model Repositiories 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
   (like e.g. interactive Virtual Reality, Human Communication through
   Immersive Environments, Collaborative Virtual and Augmented Reality,
   Telepresence Systems and Shared Workspaces, Shared Interaction Spaces,
   Shared Object Manipulation)

o- Visual Interactive Simulation Environments
   (like 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 Comuter Interaction
   Issues raised by Large Scale DS-RT Systems

o- Innovative Styles of Interactions with Large Scale DS-RT Systems
   (like e.g. Implicit, Situative and Attentive Interaction,
   Tangible Interaction, Embedded Interaction,

o- Emerging Simulation Challenges
   (like e.g. Growth of Human Population, Climate Change, CO2, Health Care,
    Ecosystems, Sustainable Development, Water and Energy Supply,
    Human Mobility, Airtraffic, World Stock Markets, Food Supply Chains,
    Megacities, Global Wireless Communication, Privacy Preserving Access,
etc.)
