Computer software simulation is used in virtually every discipline. These programs virtually represent small components of real-world events and behaviors, and allow scientists to test different models to guide real-world research. However, these can be individually complex, and written in different computer languages and programs. It’s a difficult task to combine simulators from different parts of a research team to represent larger systems.
The “Simple Run-Time Infrastructure” is an open-source, free-to-use software tool, developed at the University of Michigan. It was built to simplify the process of sharing data between multiple live simulators, using a “publish/subscribe” model with messages rather than directly to specific programs. This workshop will present the background of the SRTI’s development, what it is capable of, and will provide a step-by-step example for participants.
Java will be required to run the SRTI. The example will use an optional mixture that includes simulators written in Java, Matlab, and Python.
