Conference: Open problems in Nonsmooth Dynamics
General Information
Dates: February 1 to 5, 2016


With so much progress in recent decades, the landscape of nonsmooth and hybrid dynamical systems is changing. This conference will bring together some of the big breakthroughs and exciting new applications. With key speakers, themed contributed sessions, discussion time and posters, we will look at where the field is going next, how recent advances can be exploited, and what big challenges are emerging from novel technologies. The conference will be open to a wide range of theoretical and applied themes, and provide a forum to discuss common issues. The conference will initiate a three-month Intensive Research Program being held at the CRM, and will help set the agenda for this major international event (Intensive Research Program: Advances in Nonsmooth Dynamics)
