Authors interested in submitting papers to the following symposia should contact also the symposium organizer. The paper will be submitted and reviewed by the normal procedure.

Title: Computational Techniques for Engineering Sciences
Organizer: Lino Figueiredo, Cecilia Reis

Computational techniques, in particular Evolutionary computation is a growing research field of Artificial Intelligence and is divided in two main areas: the Evolutionary Algorithms and the Swarm Intelligence. This special session will highlight applications of evolutionary computation to a broad range of engineering sciences. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work in the areas including (but not limited to) the following:

• Genetic Algorithms • Particle Swarm Optimization • Differential Evolution • Ant Colony Optimization • Hybrid Algorithms • Circuit Synthesis • Intelligent Transportation Systems • Travel and Traffic Management .


Title: Lie group analysis and applications in nonlinear sciences
Organizer: Nail Ibragimov

The aim of the session is to highlight applications of Lie group analysis to nonlinear mathematical models in physics, mathematical biology and engineering sciences. The emphasis is in recent developments in new methods on group invariant solutions and conservation laws with applications to nonlinear diffusion and wave phenomena, electromagnetism and fluid dynamics.


Title: Fractional Calculus Applications
Organizers: Ramiro Barbosa, Manuel Silva

Fractional calculus (FC) is a field of mathematics that deals with derivatives and integrals to an arbitrary order. It is an old topic that goes back to the XVII century but in which the first real applications appeared only in the second half of the XX century. Nowadays, the FC is applied in most areas of science and engineering, enabling the discovery of new methodologies and the extension of classical results. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work in all areas related with the topic of this special session.


Title: Nonlinear Dynamics of Continuous and Discontinuous Dynamical Systems
organiziers: Albert Luo, Pei Yu


Title: Nonlinear Structural Dynamics and Wave Progagation
Organizers: Liming Dai, Hamid Hamidzadeh


Title: Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy: Methods and Applications
Organizers: Josep Masdemont, Marian Gidea


Title: Mathematical Modeling of Nonlinear Structures in Bose-Einstein Condensates
Organizers: Vladimir Konotop, Dmitry Pelinovsky

The special session aims to highlight recent advances in mathematical modeling of Bose-Einstein condensates with particular emphasis on existence, stability, exact solutions, and dynamics of nonlinear localized structures. The list of invited speakers will include applied mathematicians and theoretical physicists working actively in this area in the past few years and focusing on mathematical aspects of the theory of matter waves. They will talk on localization in traps of complex geometry and explain recent advances in mathematical methods for construction and study of corresponding solutions of Gross-Pitaevskii equations.


Title: Chaotic Dynamics and Transport in Classical and Quantum Systems
Organizer: Sergey Prants

The symposium is supposed to cover a broad scope of problems in physics of Hamiltonian and dissipative chaos. The areas of interest include but not limited to: Hamiltonian chaos, chaotic, strange and other attractors, chaotic advection in fluids and geophysical flows, chaotic scattering and fractals, transport in classical and quantum systems, quantum chaos, etc. Theoretical, numerical, and experimental papers are welcome.


Title: Mathematical Models in Engineering
Organizers: Carla M. A. Pinto, Antσnio Mendes Lopes

Mathematical models have been used to explain real-world problems in the natural sciences and engineering disciplines (such as physics, biology, and electrical engineering). Physicists, engineers, computer scientists, and economists use mathematical models in their research works. In this symposium we focus on mathematical models in the form of dynamical systems, statistical models, differential equations and game theoretic models. We believe engineers and applied mathematicians can greatly benefit from close collaboration and enforce links between the academic and the real world. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished theoretical, experimental and/or numerical work in the area.
