MSaaS Track at SCSC 2018
Modeling & Simulation as a Service (MSaaS) is gaining momentum as an effective approach to bringing the benefits of service- oriented architectures and cloud computing into the modeling and simulation (M&S) field, so as to enhance interoperability, composability, reusability and reduce the cost of M&S efforts.
MSaaS is intended to be a means of delivering on demand M&S applications, capabilities and resources, as well as the associated data. MSaaS is at its early stages and is being addressed and investigated by international efforts, such as the NATO MSG-136 (“Modelling and Simulation as a Service - Rapid deployment of interoperable and credible simulation environments”), as a promising approach to provide the technical and organizational foundations for service-based M&S ecosystems.
The MSaaS SCSC track aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, defense and government to present innovative ideas, experiences, and challenges that address service-oriented and cloud-based issues in the field of M&S and vice versa.
The track organizers invite high quality submissions describing relevant, original and unpublished theoretical and/or practical contributions related to (but not limited to) the topics illustrated in the Call for Papers.
