July 26-30, 2010
São José dos Campos – São Paulo – Brazil


The Dynamics Days, founded in 1980, is the longest standing and most
respected international series of meetings devoted to the field of
dynamics and nonlinearity. Traditionally it has been bringing together
researchers from a wide range of backgrounds including physics, biology,
engineering, chemistry and mathematics for interdisciplinary research in
nonlinear science. The Organizing Committee of this Dynamics Days South
America 2010 welcomes you to
participate of this outstanding event to be held in São José dos Campos,
SP, Brazil, from 26 to 30 July, 2010.


The aim of this meeting is to bring together for the first time in South America
researchers from a wide range of backgrounds who share a common interest in the
theory and applications of nonlinear dynamics. As so, researchers with background
in physics, biology, engineering, chemistry and mathematics will have a forum to
promote regional as well as international scientific and technological exchanges
and collaborations specially, but not exclusively, on problems that are specially
relevant for the development of science and technology in the South America region.

Special focus will be put on students, as they will have the opportunity to be in
contact with important, challenge and relevant research issues as well as the proper
methodology that should be used to tackle specific problems.


The conference will be structured in plenary invited talks, minisymposiums,
contributed talks and poster sessions. It will cover a broad range of topics, including:

* Applications in Engineering and Nanoscience
* Applications of Dynamical Systems in Medicine and Health Sciences
* Applications of Nonlinear Sciences
* Astrodynamics
* Bifurcation theory and analysis
* Celestial Mechanics
* Chaos in Hamiltonian Systems
* Chaotic Dynamics
* Climate Dynamics
* Collective Phenomena
* Communication with Chaos
* Complex Networks
* Control of Chaos and applications
* DNA Translocation Dynamics
* Dynamics of Biosystems
* Dynamics of Granular Materials
* Fluid Dynamics, Plasma and Turbulence
* Formation and Dynamics of Patterns
* Neuronal Dynamics
* Optoelectronic and Granular Matter
* Population Dynamics and Epidemiology
* Self-organization
* Stochastic Dynamics
* Synchronization
* Time series analysis


* Paper submission due          April 15, 2010
* Notification of acceptance    May 15, 2010
* Registration                  June 15, 2010


Contributed papers for oral or poster presentations are invited for the technical sessions.
Papers will be selected on the basis of the content of the abstract. With one or two A4 page
in length, the abstract should be a self-contained description of the contribution of the
paper and why it would be of interest to conference attendees. Abstracts will be reviewed by
the International Advisory Committee. The authors are requested to indicate their preferred
type of presentation (oral: 15 min plus 5 min of discussion, or poster), and the corresponding
technical topic. Notification of acceptance will be sent by e-mail by June 15, 2010.

All abstracts and manuscripts must be submitted in English. Invited and contributed talks,
as the poster presentations, will be given in English, which is the official Conference language.

Through a peer-reviewed process, as customary for original papers, the Proceedings of the
South America Dynamics Days 2010 will be published. Invited papers plus a selection of
contributed papers will be published in an international high impact journal.
The length of papers is 12 (twelve) printed pages for invited papers and 8 (eight) printed pages
for regular contributed papers.

The Dynamics Days South America 2010 will take place at the Conference Center of INPE
and will be held on July 26-30, 2010. Beautifully located in the valley of the Paraiba do Sul River,
São José dos Campos is a major city in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, and it is the leading city in
aerospace technology in South America. It lies about 100 km East from São Paulo, 50 minutes travel
time away from the São Paulo- Guarulhos International Airport, and is cut by Via Dutra, the highway
which connects Rio de Janeiro (340 km Northeast) and São Paulo, the two most important Brazilian cities.
The National Institute for Space Research (INPE) coordinates intensive research and development
in areas such as space sciences, space technologies, Earth observation and meteorology.
