=== GENERAL THEME =====================================================

The System Analysis and Modeling (SAM) conference 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 ITU-T’s Specification and Description
Language (SDL) and Message Sequence Charts (MSC), as well as related
system design languages (including but not limited to UML, ASN.1,
TTCN, SysML and User Requirements Notation (URN)).

As in previous editions, SAM 2016 will be co-located with the MODELS
2016. The SAM conference 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, MSC, TTCN-3, URN) are also used for other applications. The
MODELS 2016 conference week is a unique opportunity to attend both of
these events with overlapping domains of interest.

=== SCOPE AND TOPICS ==================================================

The 2016 edition of the conference is under the theme of
Technology-specific aspects of Models. This theme includes
domain-specific aspects of models and peculiarities of using models
for different technologies, including, but not limited to the
Internet of Things (IoT), automotive software, cloud applications,
and embedded software. Moreover, we encourage people to consider
publishing information about the usage of models for different
purposes and the combination with different software engineering
technologies, including, but not limited to software testing,
requirements engineering, and automated code generation.
In addition to our theme, we also invite contributions from a broader
range of topics from the following non-exhaustive list:

Models and quality:
     models quality assurance
     quality of models and model artefacts
     design of reusable models artefacts
     reuse of model artefacts
     characteristics of model quality
Language development:
     domain-specific languages and language extensions
     standardization of language profiles
     evolution of language standards
     modular language design
     semantics; evaluation of languages
     languages for real-time systems
     performance and other non-functional properties
Model-driven development:
     systems engineering
     analysis and transformation of models
     verification and validation of models
     systematic testing based on and applied to models
     tool support
     using Specification and Description Languages, e.g,
         Message Sequence Charts, UML, SysML, ASN.1, TTCN-3,
         User Requirements Notation, and related languages
     industrial usage reports
     experiences from education
     domain-specific applicability, e.g.,
         automotive, aerospace, telecommunication, process
                 automation and healthcare
     methodologies for applications

Application reports should focus on what is effective (and
ineffective) in applying a technique preferably backed up by some
measurements. A report should not just describe an implementation,
though new application areas are of interest.

=== SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATIONS =======================================

All accepted papers will be published in the well-known Springer
Lecture Notes on Computer Science. Submissions must be previously
unpublished, written in English, and use the LNCS style as described
in the LNCS Author and Editor Guidelines. Authors are strongly
encouraged to use the LaTeX version of the template. Papers accepted
or under review for other events are ineligible for submission to SAM
2016. Submissions in the following categories are solicited:
     Full papers describing original, unpublished results
         (max. 16 pages in LNCS style)
     Short papers describing work in progress
         (max. 8 pages in LNCS style)

All page limits are including illustrations, bibliography and
appendices. Failure to use the LNCS style and comply to the page
limit will lead to a desk-reject of the submission.
The SAM 2016 Program Committee will evaluate the technical
contributions of each submission as well as its accessibility to the
audience. Papers will be judged based on significance, originality,
