The scope of this conference is to gather world-leading experts, as well as young scientists, in order to present current developments and discuss future perspectives on Nonlinear Dynamics and Complex Systems.

The conference’s themes cover a variety of topics including theoretical aspects, numerical techniques, and applications to many diverse disciplines like mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry and social sciences.

Contributed talks and posters are invited from all areas of dynamics and complex systems science, including amongst others:

  • Dynamical Systems: Analytical and Numerical Methods
  • Nonlinear Hamiltonian Dynamics and Statistical Mechanics
  • Nonlinear Waves, Discrete Breathers
  • Chaos and Complexity in biological and physiological systems
  • Celestial Mechanics and Stellar Dynamics
  • Synchronization and Chaos Control
  • Soft Matter and Granular Materials
  • Electrical Circuits

The conference will act as a catalyst for research in nonlinear dynamics and its applications, providing a venue for established scholars to interact with each other, and with the junior scholars that play an essential role in the development  of science now and in the years to come. The conference is organized by the University of Thessaloniki and the University of Patras and is dedicated to Prof. Tassos Bountis, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
