The 6th IFAC Conference on Analysis and Control of Chaotic Systems will be held in Catania.
The conference will be hybrid, allowing virtual and on-site presentations.
The conference is the sixth IFAC meeting related to analysis and control of chaotic systems. The 2021 edition aims at collecting the most prominent and timely contributions in the interdisciplinary field of chaos and nonlinear dynamics control and synchronization, including the complex networks scenario. Several research areas lean on this field, taking advantage from new developments. Biology (brain dynamics, heart beating, human-machine interaction etc.), physics (optics, magnetics, fluidics and microfluidics, etc.), mechanics and electro-mechanics, engineering (nonlinear dynamics of electronic and power electronic circuits and systems, chaos encryption, robotics, etc.), economics (critical decision, data-series analysis etc.), chemical engineering, and so on. The aim of the conference is to provide the communities of control engineering, physics, economics, biology, fluid dynamics, power electronics, electronic circuits, etc. with an opportunity to exchange information and new ideas and to discuss new developments in the field of chaos control and synchronization. Both theory and applications will be discussed. The conference aims also at directly involving students and young researchers in order to introduce them to the field of chaos and nonlinear dynamics, with applications also in various fields of engineering.
Topics: The conference will cover all topics related to chaos and synchronization within the framework of control systems theory and engineering, including (but not limited to) the following
Control of complex systems.
Bifurcations in complex systems.
Nonlinear time series and identification.
Limit cycles in networks of oscillators.
Small world networks.
Applications (biology, chemical engineering, physics, electrical engineering)
Control and observation via communication constraints.
Providing a discussion forum for the physics, chaos and control system communities.
