4th International Conference on Recent Advances in Nonlinear Mechanics

Lodz University of Technology

The conference series entitled Recent Advances in Nonlinear Mechanics (RANM) is designed to gather leading researchers from three major areas of mechanics, namely, dynamics, fluids and materials. We are interested in both fundamental and applied problems, where nonlinearities or nonlinear interactions play major roles.

Conference series has been founded by Marian Wiercigroch from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. The first conference Conference was held in Aberdeen in August 2005, while the second RANM conference was organized in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in August 2009 by Ko-Choong Woo of the University of Nottingham in Kuala Lumpur. The third edition took place in Harbin, China in January of 2014, and was organized by Qingjie Cao of the Harbin Institute of Technology.

The fourth RANM conference will be held in Lodz in May 2019 and will hosted by Lodz University of Technology (TUL), which is one of the top ten Technical Universities in Poland. The University's mission is to discover and convey the truth and knowledge by performing modern scientific research, as well as to educate new generations of students and scientists. TUL focuses on creativity, openness and professionalism, which allows it to keep the status of an innovative academic and scientific center.

Lodz is a modern dynamic city with a population of around one milion. At the end of 19th century, it was one of the main centres of the textile industry in the country. It was here where the best craftsmen arrived, developing the industry by opening their factories and manufactories, which are nowadays visible in almost every corner of the city. This is the place, where one of the longest shopping streets in Europe is located (Piotrkowska Street), and this is the land the Nobel Prize winner Władysław Reymont has written about in his novel ‘Ziemia Obiecana’ (‘The Promised Land’), indicating the possibilities, but also the threats of capitalism. Nowadays, almost 600 years since granting the city rights, Lodz is continuously developing, focusing on modern technologies, innovative industry and raising the standard of living of its residents.

Professor Jerzy Warmiński

Lublin University of Technology, Lublin, PolandThis symposium is aimed at gathering together people working on dynamics and vibrations of engineering systems, including civil, mechanical, aeronautic, chemical, etc., with emphasis of theoretical developments as well as practical applications. Analytical, numerical and experimental papers with focus on recent advances are welcome. A specific list of topics includes, but it is not limited to:

Professor Jürgen Kurths

Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany

Professor Yuri Maistrenko

Institute of Mathematics and Center for Medical and Biotechnical Research, NAS of UkraineThe goal of the symposium is to propagate model trends in complex systems at the border of nonlinear physics and mechanics, applied mathematics, and theoretically-oriented life science. Traditional studies on synchronization, chaos, and bifurcation will be presented in parallel with novel discoveries in dynamical networks such as chimera states, giving a challenging opportunity for new horizons in pattern formation, nonlinear waves, networks, active media, long-range interactions, other fields. Gathering together young and experienced scientists from theory and experiments an exclusive possibility will be created for exchanging ideas at the cutting edge of nonlinear science and applications.

      - Synchronization

      - Chaos and bifurcations

      - Chimera states

      - Systems with time delay

      - Neuro-biological systems

      - Multi-stability

      - Complex networks

      - Analysis of time series




Professor Bruno Eckhardt

University of Marburg, Marburg, Germany

Professor Szymon P. Malinowski

University of Warsaw, Faculty of Physics, Institute of GeophysicsThe combination of advanced tools from nonlinear dynamics, extensive numerical simulations, as well as judiciously chosen experiments have provided new insights into the dynamics of the transition to turbulence, a better understanding of atmospheric turbulence including boundary layers and clouds, and have opened up the new field of active matter. The symposium will highlight these fields and is open to other contributions in fluid mechanics such as vortex dynamics, fluid-structure interactions, bio-fluid mechanics or waves and shocks.

      - Flow instability and transition

      - Atmospheric turbulence

      - Active matter

      - Vortex dynamics

      - Fluid - structure interactions

      - Bio-fluid mechanics

      - Waves and shocks
