Organizers of the conference: National Technical University, Kharkov, Ukraine; McGill University, Montreal, Canada

The scope of the conference is to bring together scientists and engineers to present and discuss recent developments on the different problems of nonlinear dynamics.

Main topics of the conference are:

  • Analytical and numerical methods in nonlinear dynamics

  • Resonances, stability analysis, and bifurcations in nonlinear systems

  • Nonlinear normal modes

  • Transient processes, localization of energy

  • Chaotic dynamics

  • Nonlinear dynamics of continuous systems, in particular, plates and shells

  • Vibro-impact systems and other nonsmooth systems

  • Vibro-creep problems

and other problems of nonlinear dynamics.
