OMNeT++ Summit Hackathon - Call for Participation

After last year’s success, OMNeT++ Community Summit will also feature a Hackathon in 2019. The Hackathon presents a unique opportunity to OMNeT++ users to consult and team-up with the OMNeT++ and INET developer teams and fellow developers to improve the quality and interoperability of their simulation models and frameworks, and to work on other topics. Participants and topics will be selected based on prior written project proposals.

  • Hackathon Date: September 04-05, 2019
  • Hackathon Proposal Deadline: August 10th, 2019

OMNeT++ "Ecosystem Book" Published

A new book providing a comprehensive overview into OMNeT++ and its major model frameworks has just been published by Springer. “Recent Advances in Network Simulation – The OMNeT++ Environment and its Ecosystem” (ed. Antonio Virdis and Michael Kirsche, Springer, 2019) represents a joint effort of numerous prominent figures in the OMNeT++ community.

The book begins with a practical overview of OMNeT++ itself, covering also the latest improvements in areas such as visualization and result processing, and extending into other topics such as emulation, co-simulation, checkpointing or using the cloud for simulation execution. The following chapters provide an overview for a selection of model frameworks in the ever-growing OMNeT++ ecosystem: INET, Veins, SimuLTE, RINASim, SEA++ and several other frameworks have dedicated chapters. The INET chapter, for example, not only contains an overview and practical guidance on how to assemble models for various types of networks, but, for more advanced use cases, it also provides explanations and code snippets on using the internal APIs of INET. The third part of the book presents the latest advances and novel developments coming from a large research community, such as live monitoring and control of OMNeT++ simulations, or using Python and Pweave.

We in the OMNeT++ team are proud to have contributed two chapters to the book (OMNeT++ Overview, INET Framework). Thank you and congratulations to the editors and fellow authors for their hard work and dedication to make this happen!

See the book’s page at Springer, on Google Books (includes content preview), or buy it from Amazon.

Official OMNeT++ Docker Containers

We are now providing official docker images for various OMNeT++ versions on Docker Hub. These images are useful for compiling, testing and running your model either locally or remotely in the cloud. They also provide a reproducible environment for your simulations so we highly recommend using them if you intend to publish a paper based on simulation results.

The images are based on Ububtu 18.04 and use clang 6.0 as the compiler. OMNeT++ is built in release mode for Cmdenv execution so graphical tools are not available.

Supported OMNeT++ versions: 3.3, 4.6, 5.4.1 and 5.5.1

6th OMNeT++ Community Summit 2019 - Call for Contributions

The 6th OMNeT++ Community Summit (OMNeT++ 2019)  will be held at the Hamburg University of Technology from Wednesday to Friday, September 04-06, 2019. The OMNeT++ Community Summit is an open meeting with time and space for tutorials, discussions, coding sessions as well as presentations on recent developments and novel ideas in the broad area of modeling and simulation, with a focus on the OMNeT++ simulation framework. To facilitate the interaction among participant, we introduce this year a novel presentation format called ConversTations. It is a highly interactive format, which provides much more feedback and useful discussion time than traditional talks. Paper submission deadline: July 1, 2019.

Hackathon. Following the success of 2018’s edition, the 2019 Community Summit will include a hackathon event. This provides the chance for developers of simulation models and frameworks to consult and work together with OMNeT++ core developers and fellow developers to improve the quality and interoperability of models and frameworks. Project proposal deadline: August 10, 2019.
