Call For Papers
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‑2010) and Message Sequence Chart (MSC) notations, as well as related system design languages — including but not limited to UML, ASN.1, TTCN, SysML and the User Requirements Notation (URN).

SAM 2020 is co-located with MODELS 2020, held in Montreal, Canada.

Scope and Topics

This year’s edition of SAM will be under the theme “Languages, Methods, and Tools for AI-based systems, 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 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 models.
    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 AI-based systems. 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 interest.

The conference programme will include:

    Presentations from invited speakers
    Presentation of research papers
    Presentation of industrial experiences
    Tool demonstrations
