Every three years the International Federation for Automatic Control (IFAC) has organized a Nonlinear Control System Symposium (NOLCOS). The scope of these symposia continues to be the theory and applications of nonlinear control systems. With advances in science, technology, computing and communications these topics have grown in importance. NOLCOS is acknowledged as the major international gathering of leading experts in the field of nonlinear control from industry and academia.
CHAOS 2015 is the fourth IFAC meeting sponsored mainly by IFAC Technical Committee on Non-Linear Control Systems (TC 2.3). It will provide a forum for new developments in the field of analysis and control of chaotic systems, synchronization and complex networks. The research field covers application domains such as biology (brain dynamics, heart beating, etc.), physics (optics, magnetics, fluid dynamics, etc.), mechanics, engineering (non-linear dynamics of electronic and power electronic systems, chaos encrypted signals, walking robots, etc.), economics (critical decision, etc.), chemical engineering, and so on. Both theory and applications will be discussed in CHAOS 2015.
MICNON 2015 is going to be the first of a new conference series that is organized by the IFAC Technical Committee on Nonlinear Systems. The scope of the conference will cover all areas of nonlinear systems theory and applications in science and engineering, including control of nonlinear systems, analysis of nonlinear systems, modeling and identification of nonlinear systems and all types of applications in connection to nonlinear systems.
For who is interested in making up a proposal for hosting NOLCOS 2019.

Available now the three plenaries held at NOLCOS conference 2013 by:
-Prof. Miroslav Krstic (University of California, San Diego, CA, USA, http://flyingv.ucsd.edu/): Nonlinear Stabilization in Infinite Dimension;
-Prof. Naomi Ehrich Leonard (Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA, http://www.princeton.edu/~naomi/): Multi-agent system dynamics: Bifurcation and behavior of animal groups;
-Prof. Robert Mahony (Australian National University, Australia, http://users.cecs.anu.edu.au/~Robert.Mahony/): Observers for Kinematic Systems with Symmetry.
This event is organized every year from 34 years by the Control Systems Department of Grenoble Images Speech Signal Control Laboratory (GIPSA-Lab).
This year, the School will take place from July 1st to July 5 2013 in Grenoble, France.
The theme chosen for this year is STABILITY OF TIME-DELAY SYSTEMS AND ITS APPLICATIONS, having Alexandre SEURET, Win MICHIELS and Silviu-Iulian NICULESCU as scientific chairs.
An application session has been included in the Technical Program to enhance attractivity among students.
Please find herein enclosed this event’s flyer, as well as its preliminary programme:
