Purpose and underlying approach:

As in the case of INTSINT, SAMSINT is based on the intonation model developed by Daniel Hirst and the group of the Aix-en-Provence University [Hirst 91, 94], [Hirst et al. ?].

[Llisterri 96a]:

"SAMSINT [...] was intended to be a computer-readable system for the transcription of intonation contours within defined intonation units. The system is based on INTSINT […], incorporating additional facilities and simplifications [Wells et al. 92]".
