SRTI: Software For Cross-Language Real-Time Data Communication
May 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
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 live example will use an optional mixture that includes simulators written in Java, Matlab, and Python.
This special-track workshop (provided as a “seminar-style”) is open to researchers both inside and outside the University of Michigan. Up to 300 attendees can attend through Zoom.
We ask attendees to “register” by filling out the following Google Forms survey. The survey will provide a Zoom link for you to copy into your calendar.
