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

DEADLINE: Receiving submissions (contributive talks, posters,
minisimposyum proposals) up to April, 15th!

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
* Complex dynamics in chemical systems
* 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.
