Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Engineering Index (EI) and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Mathematical research allows constructing new algorithms to solve traditionally difficult problems. In this regard, Dynamical systems are an important topic in applied science whose study had previously numerical limitations.

In Control Theory, Dynamical Systems described by Autonomous Ordinary Differential Equations are commonly used. Computational research has allowed the construction of Lyapunov functions with small computational effort by solving a PDE associated to the Lyapunov function of a dynamical system. Further research allows describing their components: The orbits that represent the sections of the function in which the system has a constant behaviour and the gradient-like flow in which the system is dynamic.

Applications of such function can be found in sciences as biology and in many engineering applications. Research and contributions on differential equations are important to offer stronger approaches to the perfect description of a dynamical system.
