Computational Techniques for Engineering Sciences
Lino Figueiredo, Cecilia Reis
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invited to submit their original and unpublished work in the areas including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:
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
Organizers: Ramiro Barbosa,
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original and unpublished work in all areas related with the topic of this
Dynamics of Continuous and Discontinuous Dynamical Systems
organiziers: Albert Luo, Pei Yu
Structural Dynamics and Wave Progagation
Organizers: Liming Dai, Hamid
Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy: Methods and Applications
Organizers: Josep Masdemont,
Mathematical Modeling of Nonlinear Structures in Bose-Einstein Condensates
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.
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.
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.
