Theme: Models and Reusability
Model reuse is a powerful concept defined as the process of creating new models using existing model artefacts. To make model reuse applicable, reusing an artefact should be easier than constructing it from scratch. This entails that the reusable artefacts are easy to understand, find and apply. Commonly reusable artefacts include classes, components, patterns, frameworks and services, and emerging ones include product lines, aspects and concerns.
SAM2014 invited contributions related but not limited to the reuse of model artefacts and the design of reusable artefacts for ITU-T languages and other related system design languages.
The 2014 edition of the conference invited contributions on the the following non-exhaustive list of topics:
- Models and reusability: design of reusable models artefacts; reuse of model artefacts; characteristics of reusable artefacts; experiences in model reusability with various languages in different domains; tools supporting models and reusability.
- 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; simulation; systematic testing based on and applied to models; tool support.
- Using Specification and Description Language, 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., in 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.
As in previous editions, the SAM 2014 proceedings were published in the well-known Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The SAM proceedings published by Springer are: LNCS8769 (SAM 2014); LNCS7744 (SAM 2012); LNCS6598 (SAM 2010); LNCS4320 (SAM 2006); LNCS3319 (SAM 2004); LNCS2599 (SAM 2002); as well as the past editions of the SAM Conference and SDL Forum.
Requirements on authors: Accepted papers had to be presented at SAM 2014 by one of the authors. A full SAM 2014 conference registration was required for each accepted paper. It was not allowed to cover more than one paper with the same registration. Failure to register before the early registration deadline or present the paper at the conference would have resulted in the paper being removed from the proceedings.
