The System Analysis and Modelling (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 modelling and
analysis of complex 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

SAM 2019 will be co-located with MODELS 2019, held in Munich, Germany.


Scope and Topics

This year’s edition of SAM will be under the theme “Languages, Methods, and
Tools for Industry 4.0”, 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 and the following
non-exclusive list of topics: 


   - Evolution of languages: domain-specific languages, modular language
design, language extensions, semantics and evaluation, methodology for

   - Model-driven development: analysis and transformation of models, reuse
approaches, 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, non-functional aspects (such as performance, quality of
service, real-time aspects, security, etc.) in system models, multi-core

   - Industrial application and tool reports: industrial usage reports,
standardization activities, tool support and frameworks, domain-specific
applicability (such as telecommunications, aerospace, automotive, Internet
of Things, control, etc.), with special emphasis on Industry 4.0. Such
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


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Submissions should be previously unpublished, written in English, no longer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

under review for other events are ineligible for submission to SAM 2019.

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)


Important: Electronic submission using
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sam2019 in PDF format is mandatory.
Please refer to the conference homepage for more information.

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 significance, originality, substance, correctness, and clarity. 


Accepted papers must be presented at SAM 2019 by one of the authors. As in
previous editions, the SAM 2019 proceedings will be published in the
Springer LNCS series.
