                  CALL FOR PAPERS DS-RT 2009

                 *** Deadline May 11, 2009 ***


             13th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on

        Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications

                           (DS-RT 2009)



                        October 25-28, 2009



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:


* 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);


* Paradigms, Modeling, Architecture and Environments for Large Scale

Real-time Systems and Concurrent Systems with Hard and Soft Real-Time



* 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);


* Languages and Tools, Development Environments, Data Interfaces,

Network Protocols and Model Repositories that address Very Large



* Data Distribution Management, Interest Management, Multi-resolution

Modeling and Dead-Reckoning Mechanisms;


* Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing Architectures and Applications

that involve Simulations and/or adhere to Real-Time Constraints;


* Simulation based Virtual Environments and Mixed Reality Systems

(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



* Visual Interactive Simulation Environments (e.g., Generic Animation,

Visual Interactive Modeling, Interactive Computer Based Training and

Learning; Scientific Visualization; High-End Computer Graphics);


* Design Issues, Interaction Designs, Human Computer Interaction Issues

raised by Large Scale DS-RT Systems;


* Media Convergence (e.g. New Technologies, Media Theory, Real-Time

considerations of Multi Modality, etc.);


* Innovative Styles of Interactions with Large Scale DS-RT Systems

(e.g. Implicit, Situative and Attentive Interaction, Tangible

Interaction, Embedded Interaction, etc.);


* 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,

Global Wireless Communication, Privacy Preserving Access, etc.).
