8th Workshop
SDS2014 
STRUCTURAL DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS: 
Computational Aspects

Hotel-Villaggio Porto Giardino, 
Capitolo, Monopoli, Italy
June 10-13, 2014

 
The Workshop will take place at the  Hotel Villaggio Porto Giardino Capitolo-Monopoli, Bari, Italy
The main aim of this workshop is to put together researchers of different areas, in particular Mathematics and Engineering, to give them the opportunity of discussing, in a friendly atmosphere, recent developments in computational and theoretical methods for Dynamical Systems and their applications.
This edition of the meeting  follows seven previous editions held, at the same place, in 2001, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010 and 2012 and will be focused on Piecewice Smooth Dynamical Systems. The main topics are:
  • Numerical methods for ODEs;
  • Discontinuous ODEs
  • Piecewise-smooth dynamical systems;
  • Dynamical systems with variable structure;
  • Sliding motion and Control;
  • Ensemble Control of Linear Dynamical systems.
  • Genetic and Medical Applications.
Both numerical and theoretical aspects of the previous topics will be welcome. Invited speakers are:
Plenary talks will be arranged in order to provide lectures on each workshop topic. Contributed talks will be accepted. 
A poster session will be organized to present contributes of Senior researchers (who do not desire to provide oral presentation and/or in the case the number of contributed talks will exceed the available places for oral presentations) and for PhD students who would like to showcase their work. 

PhD Students who have already made some progress on their thesis, can present a synopsis of their work, whereas students who are just beginning their thesis, can present an overview of what they are proposing to study. Poster presentation  will provide PhD students with feedback on their work, accomplished or planned, in a less formal setting than that of a plenary presentation.
