1st Workshop of the SDL Forum Society on SDL and MSC
Date: 29.06. - 01.07. 1998
Organized by: SDL Forum Society,
Humboldt University Berlin, and
Sponsored by: DT Berkom
Venue: GMD Fokus
D - 10589 Berlin
Web page: http://www2.informatik.hu-berlin.de/~sam98/
The SDL & MSC workshop shall provide an open discussion platform between
SDL fora. It addresses 3 topics related to both description techniques.
The intended audience ranges from SDL Forum members, tool vendors over
researchers and users to standardizers and will be limited to about 80
persons. Being a less formal event as the bi-annual SDL Forum the workshop
is expected to be a place for intensive discussions enabling the unfolding
of ideas for the future development and application of SDL and MSC.
The workshop will consist of a set of invited presentations and topic
centered breakout sessions. Potential participants of the sessions are
also encouraged to submit and present papers reflecting their work. Following
the presentations plenty of time will be made available for indepth discussions.
In case of parallel sessions plenaries will be used to inform all participants
of the workshop of the outcome of the single sessions.
Each day of the workshop will address one special topic:
Day 1 Language Issues
Day 2 SDL and MSC in Relation
to other Languages and Techniques
Day 3 Design, Methodology and Application
Day 1 - 29 June 1998
Morning (9:00 - 10:00) - Workshop Opening and Keynote Speech
Morning (10:30 - 13:00) - SDL 2000 / MSC 2000 -Parallel Sessions
This session covers the future language development of SDL and MSC, the
introduction of new concepts, the removal of outdated concepts, the alignment
of existing concepts as well as experiences with the last language revision
of SDL (SDL-96) and the latest MSC version.
Afternoon (14.00 - 15.30) - Continuation of Morning Sessions
Afternoon (16.00 - 17.00) - Joint Session and Wrap-Up

This session is dedicated to the relation of MSC's to other description
Morning (9:00 - 13:00) - Semantics
This session covers new approaches to formalize the semantics of current
SDL and MSC as well as the semantic foundation of concepts to be introduced
in new revisions of both languages. Space will also given aspects of the
verification and validation on base of the formal semantics.
Afternoon (14.00 - 18.00) - Object Orientation and Distributed Systems
This session addresses the combined application of SDL and MSC with techniques
from the area of object oriented analysis and design. Especially the Unified
Modeling Language (UML) which is standardized by the OMG will gain a strong
influence in future. Other topics of this session are the application of
SDL for the development of distributed systems according to the ODP standard
and the OMG specifications and the relation of SDL to languages used in
this scope (object and interface definition languages e.g. ODL, IDL).
Day 3 - 1 July 1998
Morning (9:00 - 13:00) - Patterns and SDL
(to be confirmed)
Afternoon (14.00 - 18.00) - Industrial Applications
This session serves as a podium to share experiences resulting from the
application of SDL and MSC in real-life industrial projects between users,
language & tool developers and methodologist. The goal is to find out,
how the languages fulfill the requirements of the industry and which additions/changes
to the languages, tools and methodologies are wanted.
Afternoon - Closing Session
Invited Presentations will be given a time slot of 30-45 minutes, participant's
presentations 20-25 minutes (about 4 per session). The remaining time of
