Presentation Title: Dynamical Simulation Integrated with Augmented Reality Display Systems
Presentation Abstract: Many challenging problems are posed when Internet of Things (IoT) sensor technologies are deployed in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) for controlling multi-rate dynamical systems. I will describe the messaging systems for data transfer, signal processing, and methods for the numerical solution of large systems of coupled non-linear differential equations. Particular attention is given to human-in-the-loop issues in designing augmented reality (AR) display systems and synthetic training environments. Applications of the simulation and display environments will be illustrated using simulation of ballistic trajectories and predictive maintenance strategies.
Biography: Gregory J. McRae is the Hoyt C. Hottel Professor of Chemical Engineering Emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and an independent consultant. He received a M.S. and Ph.D. in engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and B.E. (Hons) Monash University, Australia. He is the author of numerous articles, books and presentations on energy and environmental issues, chemical process modeling, decision making in the presence of uncertainty and computational methods. For this work he has received numerous awards and prizes including the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, Forefronts of Computer Science Award. He is the founder of four companies that provide services to microelectronic, chemical and operations support industries.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted. Conference proceedings may be submitted to the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries, for archiving and indexed in DBLP and SCOPUS. Some exceptions apply.
General Technical Papers
Original, high-quality technical papers are solicited for review, possible presentation and subsequent publication in the conference proceedings. Papers are max 12 pages long with single column format (see author’s kit at https://scs.org/authorskit). Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during SpringSim’20 review process.
All submissions will be peer reviewed by a minimum of 3 reviewers and feedback will be provided. Authors of papers accepted for the SpringSim’20 Conference are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted.
Tutorial proposals should be two pages in length. Interested authors are invited to submit an accompanying optional paper: maximum of 12 pages long, with a minimum of five pages, with single column format.
The underlying M&S theory and formalism as well as the implementation overview must be documented in a 2-page abstract paper submitted prior to the conference. The paper must embed screenshots of the displays and list all of the capabilities of the system. Limited use of open-source tools and libraries can be incorporated into the system; however, the use of commercial simulation tools is not allowed in the demo. The demo should convey the development, theories, challenges, objectives, or any findings and results of the simulation. The demo should not be a plug-and-play experience that conveys various simulation outcomes. Accepted abstracts will need to be submitted in poster format.
Each participant will need to demo and present the M&S system during the M&S Demo session, the demo can be joined with a PowerPoint presentation. Allotted time for each demo/PowerPoint is 15mins with 5mins of Q&A.
The M&S Demo Session is open not only to undergrads, grads, and post-docs, but also to researchers in the early stage of their career. A student must be the primary author while faculty can be added as co-authors.
Student Colloquium Posters
Graduate students are invited to submit a 2-page extended abstract describing their research work, which can be in the proposal stage or early/middle stages of development.
Accepted abstracts will need to be presented in a poster format. Additionally, authors of accepted abstracts will give a short 10 minutes presentation during the Student Colloquium session.
In addition, we welcome submissions of the following types of contributions and/or proposals:
All presented work will be available to conference attendees electronically.
Title: The Second Summit of Simulation Research Centers
Presenters: Saikou Diallo and LeRon Shults
Abstract: Research centers and institutes in the field of computer modeling and simulation are important in helping people, organizations, and governments solve problems. They also help bridge the gap between basic and applied research and foster a collaborative environment where people from all disciplines and backgrounds can share knowledge in service of a greater good.
This workshop will serve as the second “summit” of simulation research centers and institutes (the first was in Berlin in 2019) and provide a collaborative forum in which participants can share their ethos, achievements and future goals in order to: 1) generate a body of knowledge that can be leveraged around the world and, 2) foster relationships that can grow into collaborative teams across centers. The specific goals of this summit are to:
Centers and institutes interested in participating in this SpringSim workshop are asked to contact Saikou Diallo at firstname.lastname@example.org or LeRon Shults at email@example.com prior to submitting an abstract and preparing a brief presentation that covers the four areas of the workshop identified above.
Confirmed centers include:
Virginia Modeling Analysis and Simulation Center, Virginia, USA
NORCE Center for Modeling Social Systems, Kristiansand, Norway
Center for Mind and Culture, Boston, USA

George Mason University is a public research university in Fairfax, Virginia. It was officially established in 1956 as a Northern Virginia branch of the University of Virginia and later became an independent institution in 1972. It has since grown to become the largest four-year public university in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The university is named after the founding father George Mason, a Virginia planter and politician who authored the Virginia Declaration of Rights, the basis for the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Mason operates four campuses in Virginia, with a fifth campus in Songdo, South Korea.
