The Conference is focused on recent progress in the interrelated fields of nonlinear dynamics with applications to physical systems of different origins. Conference scope covers the following subjects, including both basic aspects and advanced applications:

  • General problem of nonlinear dynamics and nonlinear wave phenomena (including recent developments in stochastic processes, dynamics of solitons and rogue waves, nonlinearities in neural networks, biological physics, etc.)
  • Physics of extreme light (including recent developments in high-power lasers, ultrahigh intensity laser-plasma interaction, strong-field physics, etc.)
  • Nonlinear problems in geophysics (recent developments in nonlinear dynamics in geosciences including climate research, nonlinear processes in boundary layers, atmospheric electricity, etc.)
  • Nonlinearities in quantum systems and quantum optics (including recent developments in physics of cold gases and Bose-Einstein condensates, quantum control, physics of coherent phenomena in quantum systems, optoelectronics, THz physics, etc.)
  • Nonlinear processes and turbulence in fluids  and plasmas (including recent developments in physics of turbulence, nonlinear acoustics (sound),  magnetic fusion, etc.)
  • Nonlinear problems of astrophysics (including recent developments in cosmology, galactic and extragalactic astronomy,  dark matter phenomena, formation of supernovae, relativistic jets, accretion disks, black holes,  etc. )

The conference program will include topical oral and poster sessions, and a set of plenary lectures on interrelated topics.
