Integration of System Design Languages
20-23 June, 2005, Grimstad, Norway
The SDL Forum is held every 2 years and has become the most important event in the calendar for anyone involved in
the related System Design Languages and technologies. It is the primary conference event where the evolution of these
languages is discussed. The SDL Forum Society that runs the Forum is a non-profit organisation established by language
users and tool providers to promote and develop the set of modelling languages recommended by ITU (ASN.1, MSC, SDL, eODL,
TTCN and URN).
There is a significant convergence between the languages specified by ITU-T and the set of UML notations offered by
OMG (Object Management Group), which are usually covered in the MoDELS/UCM conference
(www.modelsconference.org). To take this convergence into account, the
scope of the SDL Forum conference has been extended to include the use of precise UML models, combining the strong areas
of the ITU languages with the pragmatics of UML to produce profitable code and effective implementations.
The SDL Forum addresses topics related to the modelling and analysis of reactive systems, distributed systems such as
telecommunications, automotive, aerospace and web-based applications. The intended audience includes users of modelling
techniques (in industrial research and standardization contexts), tool vendors, and language researchers.
