Workshop on Performance and Time in SDL/MSC

February, 17-19, 1998
University of Erlangen, Germany


Currently the ITU languages SDL and MSC do not support three important
activities of the system development process:
- performance evaluation (model-based and measurement-based),
- joint validation of functional and time aspects, and
- support for the implementation of the QoS requirements of systems.
On the other hand, several extensions to the standard languages
exist to support performance and time aspects.

Goals of the workshop:

The goal of the workshop is to get together
- researcher in the above fields,
- tool providers (both commercial and academia),
- users of SDL and MSC from industry, and
- experts working in the standards bodies
to discuss the issues involved and to move forward towards the extension
of SDL and MSC (SDL 2000) to support performance and time aspects.

The workshop is proposed to be held in conjunction with an ITU Q.6/10
expert meeting. We plan to devote one day to a joint meeting with Q.6/10
to discuss the integration of language extensions into SDL/MSC to
support performance and time aspects.

Participation is open to members of the SDL Forum Society or
alternatively by invitation of the organization committee.
In order to apply, send your contribution (proposal, problem statement
or discussion item) by December 18, 1997, to A. Mitschele-Thiel
( preferable in ASCII or postscript.

Notification will be by January 13th, 1998.
