                               DS-RT 2004
               Eighth IEEE* International Symposium on
          Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications,
                          October 21-23, 2004,
                           Budapest, Hungary.


In conjunction with 16th European Simulation Symposium (ESS 2004)
October 17-20, 2004, Budapest, Hungary.

*IEEE Approval Pending


In its eighth year, the 2004 International Symposium on Distributed
Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT 2004) will take place at
Park Hotel Flamenco, Budapest, Hungary, just after the European
Simulation Symposium (ESS 2004).

This is an excellent opportunity to participate in two conferences
covering a wide range of simulation research.

Symposium Objectives

DS-RT 2004 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 2004 targets the growing
overlap between large distributed simulations and real time applications,
such as collaborative virtual environments.  The conference features
prominent invited speakers as well as papers by top researchers in the
field. DS-RT 2004 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- Collaborative Virtual Environments, e.g. interactive Virtual Reality,
    human communication through immersive environments, shared object
 o- Multi-sensory collaborative systems, e.g. collaborative future
    workspaces, psychological issues of collaborative VR;
 o- Interactive Simulation in Entertainment and Games;
 o- Applications of Distributed Simulation, e.g., Real Time, large
    distributed simulation systems;
 o- Agent Based Distributed Simulation, e.g., multi-agent based simulation,
    parallel and distibuted simulation of multi-agent systems;
 o- Algorithms and Studies relating to existing protocols, e.g., HLA, DIS,
    event synchronization, network time protocols;
 o- Data Distribution Management, Interest Management, Multi-resolution
    modeling and Dead-Reckoning Mechanisms;
 o- Current Critical Design Issues, e.g.: causality, simultaneous events,
    zero look-ahead, compensation for slower than real time;
 o- Methodology for Distributed and Parallel Simulation;
 o- Approaches to interoperation of COTS simulation modeling packages;
 o- Interface Definition, Communication, Management, Security;
 o- Performance of Distributed Simulation, e.g., benchmark, theoretical,
    empirical, and HLA/RTI studies;
 o- Visual Interactive Simulation, e.g., generic animation, visual
    interactive modeling, interactive computer based learning;
 o- Animating Language Tools, Visualization Tools for Computational
    under Simulation;
 o- Modeling and Simulation Environments for Real Time Concurrent Systems;
 o- Influence of Network-Centric Systems, e.g., Java, and DCOM;
 o- Network support for distributed simulation and real-time systems
    e.g., QoS requirements, multicast for distributed/real-time simulation;
 o- Applications of Web-Based Simulation, e.g. Modeling Global Internet;
 o- Integration of Distributed Simulation and HLA with Web Technologies;
 o- Large Scale Distributed Simulation on the Grid.
