Distributed simulation is the execution of simulation models on distributed computer systems, and can also be just a single simulation model (e.g., just one model with an irregular and data-dependent nature). There are several advantages of distributed simulations:
- Increased speed (i.e., reduced execution time) due to the potential parallelism;
- Increased size of the simulation program and/or data generation;
- Heterogeneous computing;
- Fault tolerance;
- Usage of unique resources and multi-enterprise/geographical distributed locations; and
- Multi-enterprise simulation/intellectual property.
Several computer systems can handle distributed simulations. These computer systems can be tightly coupled or loosely coupled. The tightly coupled system is a multiprocessor computer system that communicates through shared memory modules. A loosely coupled system is a multiprocessor computer system where each processor has its own local memory and the processors communicate via messages. One important point is the merge of the paradigms of high performance computing and high-throughput computing and the resulting increasingly sophisticated distributed simulations.
This Special Issue particularly welcomes, but is not limited to, contributions that explore advanced computer architecture for distributed simulation. In addition, the Issue will include sophisticated applications in the areas of big data, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and massive agent-based systems. Contributors that are interested in presenting their work are invited to submit an extended abstract to the Guest Editor ([email protected]).Dr. Luis Rabelo
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
