Nonlinear dynamics

Although the brand name ENOC (European Nonlinear Oscillations Conference) is still used as the historical abbreviation, the European Nonlinear Dynamics Conferences aim at covering the complete field of Nonlinear Dynamics, including Multibody Dynamics and coupling to Stability, Identification, Control and (Structural) Optimization.

During the last few decades, the area of nonlinear dynamics has been evolving in a revolutionary way, with applications to a wide variety of engineering systems made possible by the use of sophisticated computational techniques employing powerful concepts and tools of dynamical systems, bifurcation and chaos theory.

Topics

The topics of ENOC 2014 include but are not limited to:

  • Models and methods (analytical, numerical, geometrical, symbolic, experimental) in nonlinear dynamics.
  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis of nonlinear dynamic systems.
  • Nonlinear dynamics of continuous, discontinuous and hybrid systems.
  • Bifurcations and chaos.
  • Nonlinear stochastic systems.
  • Nonlinear dynamic phenomena.
  • Control of oscillations and chaos.
  • Applications in mechanics at different scales, and real problems from any branch of engineering science including mechanical, civil, electronic, electrical, communication, medical, materials.
  • Cross-disciplinary topics from applied mathematics, physics, biophysics, genetics, nanotechnology, finance, medicine and earth sciences.

Scientific organization

ENOC 2014 will include:

  • Keynote lectures,
  • Minisymposia sessions on pre-defined topics,
  • Regular sessions on general topics,
  • Poster sessions (depending on the number of submissions),
  • and will be organized in parallel sessions.

Participation in  Minisymposia, Regular sessions and Poster Sessions will depend on acceptance of a short paper. Short papers will be published as Conference proceedings in digital format. A Book of abstracts will be also distributed at the meeting.
