Call for Papers for SAM2012

The Systems Analysis and Modeling (SAM) workshop provides an open arena for participants from academia and industry to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in modeling, specification, and analysis of distributed, communication and real-time systems using System Design Languages (SDL): that is, the ITU Specification and Description Language (incl. Message Sequence Charts) and related languages such as UML, ASN.1, TTCN-3, and URN.

The SAM workshop originates from the use of languages and techniques for telecommunications applications, whereas MODELS has a background in the application of UML. However, UML is also used for telecommunications, and the languages standardized by ITU-T (ASN.1, SDL-2010, TTCN-3, URN) are also used for other applications. The 2012 MODELS conference week is a unique opportunity to attend both of these events with overlapping domains of interest.


The 2012 edition of the workshop will cover the following non-exclusive list of topics: Language development domain-specific languages and language extensions
standardization of language profiles
evolution of language standards
modular language design
evaluation of languages

Model-driven development systems engineering, including embedded systems and Internet of Things
analysis and simulation of models
product lines and reuse approaches
systematic testing
model transformations

Application of SDL (Specification and Description Language, Message Sequence Charts, UML, SysML, ASN.1, TTCN-3, URN …) industrial usage reports
standardization activities
experiences from education<
domain-specific applicability (e.g., in automotive, aerospace, telecommunication)
