*** Scope

In its fourteenth year, the 2010 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT 2010) will
take place in Fairfax, Virginia, USA.


*** Symposium Objectives

DS-RT 2010 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 2010 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 2010 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, 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 (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 (e.g. Dependability, Availability, Reliability,
  Maintainability, Safety, Security, Trustworthiness, QoS)

o 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)

o Simulation Studies at Large and Very Large Scale (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
  (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
  (e.g. Interactive Virtual Reality, Human Communication through
  Immersive Environments)

o Collaborative Virtual and Augmented Reality, Shared Interaction
  Spaces, Telepresence Systems and Shared Workspaces, 3D Video and
  Acoustic Reconstruction, Shared Object Manipulation

o Visual Interactive Simulation Environments (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 Media Convergence (e.g. New Technologies, Media Theory, Real-Time
  considerations of Multi Modality, etc.)

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

o Technologies for Living Labs (e.g. Mirror World Simulation,
  Interoperability, Large Scale Multi Sensor Networks, Global Wireless
  Communication, Multi Stakeholder Understanding and Innovation)

o 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,
  Disaster Planning, etc.)


*** Important Dates

Submission Deadline: May 17, 2010
Notification of Acceptance: July 19, 2010
Camera Ready version due: August 9, 2010
Symposium presentation: October 17-20, 2010, Fairfax, Virginia, USA


*** Submission

Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication
elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by Technical Program Committee
members and other experts active in the field to ensure high quality
and relevance to the conference.

Papers should be written in English and should not exceed 10 pages
(single-spaced) or 18 pages (double-spaced). No paper templates are
provided in this phase and your own template may be used. Authors
are encouraged to submit papers in electronic form, postscript,
pdf, or Microsoft Word 6.0 (or higher) only.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be
published by IEEE press.

IMPORTANT: ATTENDANCE BY AT LEAST ONE AUTHOR IS MANDATORY
