Call for Papers

International Conference on Applied Nonlinear Dynamics, Vibration, and Control (ICANDVC-2021) is aimed to provide a high-quality academic exchange platform for the most recent advances in the areas related to nonlinear dynamics, vibration analysis and control, control systems theory and methods, robotics, and their various engineering applications. ICANDVC-2021 will be held from August 23 to 25, 2021, in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, China. Active and leading scholars in these related areas from EU, US, and Asia would be invited for keynote speeches and focused research topics, which are closely keen on R&D frontiers in the areas.


The topics of interest relevant to applied nonlinear dynamics, applied vibration control and systems, and applied control theory/methods/systems are welcomed, including but not limited to:


  1. Theory and methods for nonlinear analysis and design;
  2. Nonlinear systems modeling and/or identification;
  3. Experimental nonlinear dynamics;
  4. Active vibration control;
  5. Beneficial influence of nonlinearities;
  6. Nonlinear wave propagation;
  7. Bio-inspired nonlinear dynamics/systems/structures;
  8. Nonlinear system control;
  9. Passive vibration isolation/suppression;
  10. Experimental and/or benchmark vibration control systems;
  11. Vibration based structural health monitoring;
  12. Vibration-based energy harvesting;
  13. Structural vibration control & acoustics;
  14. Signal processing in vibration & control;
  15. Applied robust control, optimization and systems;
  16. Bio-inspired computation/intelligence/control;
  17. Human-machine interaction systems and control;
  18. Robotics;
  19. Others.

Accepted conference regular submissions would be published in Springer conference proceedings-Advances in Applied Nonlinear Dynamics, Vibration & Control, indexed by DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, zbMATH, Japanese Science and Technology Agency, WTI Frankfurt eG, Inspec and Scopus. Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit their extended technical papers to several SCI journals for a possible publication after ordinary review process, such as Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing (IF 6.471, rank 5/130 in Mechanical Engineering in the JCR 2020) & Journal of Sound and Vibration (IF 3.429, rank 26/136 in Mechanics in the JCR 2020).
