Adjacent workshop DS-RT'2003
Just before the ESS conference, the 7th IEEE DS-RT'2003 International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications will take place from 23-25 October at Delft University of Technology as well. If you are working in the field of distributed simulation or real-time simulation, joining both conferences will save travel costs and time! The website of DS-RT'2003 is http://www.cs.unibo.it/ds-rt2003/
