In this poster we show how to use Specification and Description Language (SDL) to represent cellular automata models. To achieve that we use a generalization of the common cellular automata, named m:n-$CA^k$. Also we add some extension to SDL language to simplify the representation of these automata. Thanks to SDL and m:n-$CA^k$ the behavior of the cellular automata model can be defined in a graphical way allowing the complete and unambiguous description of the simulation model that uses it. SDL is a modern object oriented language that allows the definition of distributed systems. It has focused on the modeling of reactive, state/event driven systems, and has been standardized by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) in the Z.100.
