SDL Formal Semantics: Industrial Need or Academic Pleasure?
U. Glaesser, R. Gotzhein and A. Prinz (Organizers)

This workshop was combined with the workshop on Timing. It provided a presentation of issues related to the formal semantics of SDL-2000. A brief informal survey of the current formal semantics, as approved by ITU, and the rationale behind it served as input. Fundamental questions were addressed concerning the role of SDL's formal definition with respect to language standardization and implementation of SDL tools. Correctness and executability of the formal model were briefly addressed as well.
