The conference will showcase recent advances in dynamical systems theory and their interplay with a wide range of applications in the sciences and engineering. The underlying mathematical theories can help extract structures from experimental observations (real-world dynamics), and conversely, shed light on the formation, dynamics, and control of spatio-temporal patterns in applications. The meeting will bring together speakers who engage with applications, build and develop mathematical techniques, and use mathematical approaches for prediction and control of complex systems. The conference will also honor the long-standing contributions of Bernold Fiedler to these topics. The scientific program will consist of 45-minute keynote lectures, 30-minute invited lectures, 20-minute contributed presentations, and a poster session.
