Birds on the Wall: Distributing a Process-Oriented Simulation

Sampson, Adam T. and Bjørndalen, John Markus and Andrews, Paul S. (2009) Birds on the Wall: Distributing a Process-Oriented Simulation. In: 2009 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation. IEEE, pp. 225-231. ISBN 978-1-4244-2958-5. (doi:10.1109/CEC.2009.4982952)


The CoSMoS project aims to develop reusable tools and techniques for complex systems modelling and simulation. Using process-oriented software design techniques, we have built a concurrent model of continuous space, usable in a variety of complex systems simulations. In this paper, we describe how we refactored our space model to allow our simulations to run in an efficient and highly-scalable manner across clusters of commodity machines--and, in particular, to support distributed simulation and visualisation on the Tromsø Display Wall.
