Submission Deadline: May 1, 2008

**** Scope

 In its twelfth 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, Modeling, Architecture and Environments for
   Large Scale Real-time Systems and Concurrent Systems with
   hard and soft Real-Time Constraints

 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 Repositories that address Very Large

 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 Computer 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, Air Traffic, World Stock Markets, Food Supply Chains,
   Megacities, Global Wireless Communication, Privacy Preserving 
   Access, etc.)
