DSC Europe 2015 Call for Papers & Posters

You can access the pdf version of the Call for Papers by following this link.

DSC 2015 seeks original work and high-quality papers (and posters) in all areas related to driving simulation. Topics include, but are not limited to, simulation design and architecture, training and validation, perception and human factors, simulator sickness, ergonomics, driving behavior, virtual prototyping and industrial applications, vehicle/infrastructure design, advanced driver assistance systems, connected simulation, scenario modeling, authoring tools, traffic generation, motion cueing.

All contributions need to be submitted on-line or uploaded via the conference management system at https://www.conftool.com/dsc2015/.

Submitted abstracts are assessed by external reviewers and members of the Scientific Committee. If accepted, authors are required to complete the submission with Full Paper, Short Paper or Poster.
Full and Short Papers are peer-reviewed. In case of positive outcome, authors are required to address the reviewers’ comments in the final version of the papers. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the conference and present their work in an oral presentation. A completed registration and payment is mandatory for final acceptance of your contribution and for inclusion in the conference program.

NOTE: The main difference between full and short papers is in the paper length and not in the importance/impact of the contributions. Short papers can cover preliminary studies, prototype applications, or initial implementations. Full papers are suitable for completed scientific studies. Both full and short papers are independently peer-reviewed and published according to the same criteria. Therefore, rejected full papers will not be reconsidered for short papers contribution.

DSC Europe 2015 – Save the date !

As you may already know, next Driving Simulation Conference Europe has been announced by Andras Kemeny during the conclusion of DSC 2014.

So next DSC Europe will be held at Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Tübingen, Germany) from september 16th to 18th 2015. Save the date !

You don’t know how to come? You can arrive by plane (Stuttgart airport, 30 min by car), by train or by bus. Anything is possible and you will find all the details on the MPI website: http://www.kyb.tuebingen.mpg.de/institute/address/find.html

See you there !

Conference Assistants for DSC Europe 2018 (2 offers)

Contexte des stages

La Driving Simulation Association (DSA) a pour objectifs entre autres de promouvoir et favoriser la simulation de conduite ainsi que de contribuer à l’organisation de conférences scientifiques dans ce domaine. Ainsi elle organise depuis 2016 la Driving Simulation Conference (DSC), conférence scientifique rassemblant les communautés scientifiques et techniques du domaine de la simulation de conduite et intégrant également une exposition industrielle (dsc2016.org, dsc2017.org). Depuis 2016, la Driving Simulation Conference intègre également une session « Virtual Reality for Driving Simulation » pour mieux couvrir la convergence des domaines simulation de conduite et réalité virtuelle.

DSC Europe 2018, organisé par la Driving Simulation Association (DSA) et en partenariat avec Renault, Arts et Métier ParisTech, INRIA et Optis se déroulera à Antibes du 5 au 7 septembre 2018 (dsc2018.org).

Profils recherchés

En formation Master Informatique, Ecole d’Ingénieur en Informatique ou généraliste avec spécialisation en informatique, vous souhaitez vous impliquer dans l’organisation d’une Conférence scientifique internationale. De nature rigoureuse et avec un bon sens du relationnel, vous serez intégré(e) au Comité d’Organisation de la conférence et interviendrez en support du Comité Scientifique (International). Vous avez un bon niveau d’anglais vous permettant d’aisément comprendre et répondre aux demandes des Comités et des participants à la Conférence.

Détails des missions

Pour l’organisation de l’édition 2018 de DSC, les candidats auront en charge des missions évènementielles (aide à l’organisation générale, à la mise en page et l’édition des Actes de la conférence, à l’établissement du programme, à la communication avec les participants) en relation avec le Comité d’Organisation de la conférence. Le candidat aura également en charge la mise à jour du site web de la Conférence afin de fournir aux participants un meilleur accès aux informations importantes et mettre en ligne de façon sécurisée les Actes de Conférence (avec identifiant unique pour chaque participant).

En outre les stagiaires auront la charge d’établir un état de l’art des principaux simulateurs de conduite et salles immersives à travers le monde (dates de mise en service, technos utilisées, performances…).
