Second Call for Papers

SAM 2018

10th System Analysis and Modelling Conference : Languages, Methods, and
Tools for Systems
Engineering October 15-16, 2018, Copenhagen, Denmark

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 and analysis of complex systems using
Specification and Description Language (SDL) and Message Sequence Charts
(MSC), as well
as related system design languages (including but not limited to UML,
and URN).

SAM is held every two years. SAM 2018 will be co-located with MODELS 2018
and will be
held in Copenhagen, Denmark, October 15-16, 2018.

Scope and Topics:
This year's edition of SAM will be under the theme "Languages, Methods, and
Tools for
Systems Engineering", including languages and methods standardized by the
ITU-T, and
domain-specific languages. Also included are software engineering
technologies, such as
for requirements engineering, software verification and validation, and
automated code
generation. Authors are therefore invited to submit papers related to this
year's theme
including the following non-exclusive list of topics:
- Evolution of languages: domain-specific languages, modular language
design, language
extensions, semantics and evaluation, methodology for application.
- Model-driven development: analysis and transformation of models, reuse
verification and validation of models, systematic testing based on and
applied to models.
- System engineering models: semantics of system models, refinement of
system designs
into implementations, integration of system and software design models,
aspects (such as performance, quality of service, real-time aspects,
security, etc.) in
system models, multi-core models.
- Industrial application and tool reports: industrial usage reports,
activities, tool support and frameworks, domain-specific applicability
(such as
telecommunications, aerospace, automotive, Internet of Things, control,
etc.). Such
reports should focus on what is effective (and ineffective) in applying a
preferably backed up by some measurements. A report should not just
describe an
implementation, though new application areas are of interest.

The conference programme will include:
- Presentations from invited speakers
- Presentation of research papers
- Presentation of industrial experiences
- Tool demonstrations

Submission policy:
Submissions should be previously unpublished, written in English, no longer
than 16 pages
(including the illustrations and bibliography) and using the LNCS style as
described on
http://www.springer.com/lncs. Papers accepted or under review for other
events are
ineligible for submission to SAM 2018.

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)

Electronic submission using
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sam-2018 in PDF
format is mandatory. Please refer to the conference homepage for more
The SAM Program Committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each
submission as
well as its accessibility to the audience. Papers will be judged on
originality, substance, correctness, and clarity.

Accepted papers must be presented at SAM 2018 by one of the authors. As in
editions, the SAM 2018 proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS

About the SDL Forum Society:
The SDL Forum Society that runs the conference is a non-profit organization
by language users and tool providers to promote the Specification and
Language (SDL), Message Sequence Charts (MSC) and related System Design
(including but not limited to ASN.1, TTCN, SysML and URN), to provide and
information on the development and use of the languages, to support
education on the
languages and to plan and organize the SAM conference series and events to
promote the
