SAM 2012 : 7th Systems Analysis And Modeling Workshop
Conference Series : System Analysis and Modeling
Call For Papers
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:
bullet Language development
bullet domain-specific languages and language extensions
bullet standardization of language profiles
bullet evolution of language standards
bullet modular language design
bullet evaluation of languages
bullet systems engineering, including embedded systems and Internet of Things
bullet analysis and simulation of models
bullet product lines and reuse approaches
bullet systematic testing
bullet model transformations
bullet Application of SDL (Specification and Description Language, Message Sequence Charts, UML, SysML, ASN.1, TTCN-3, URN …)
bullet industrial usage reports
bullet standardization activities
bullet experiences from education(
bullet domain-specific applicability (e.g., in automotive, aerospace, telecommunication)
bullet Tool support
