SAMP Progress

This page contains information about SAMP, the Simple Application Messaging Protocol.


The most recent public release of the SAMP standard document is available at the IVOA Documents Page. The RFC Page lists comments and responses concerning the current progress towards RECOMMENDATION status. Versions in progress for discussion may be found at SampDoc.


An MType is the name for a short string which defines the semantics of a given SAMP message. A few administrative MTypes are defined in the SAMP document. A tentative list of MTypes in use in applications can be found at SampMTypes. This may be formalised into an IVOA Note at some point.


Software which uses the SAMP protocol is listed at SampSoftware.

Further Discussion

Discussions concerning development of the protocol, suggestions for new MTypes, and anything else SAMP-related, take place on the apps-samp mailing list. Queries and requests for help from application developers or users who would like to adopt or find out more about SAMP are very welcome.
