The purpose of this conference is to bring together scientists from around the world to promote exchange and discussions around the latest research developments in the area of nonlinear vibrations. It is the seventh conference of the series and follows on from six successful conferences held in Fréjus, 2004; Samos, 2006; Roma, 2009; Haifa, 2012; Istanbul, 2014; Liège, 2016; Marseille, 2019.

The specific subject areas to be covered at the meeting will include, but not be restricted to:

  • Theory and computation of nonlinear normal modes
  • Nonlinear energy harvesting and energy transfer
  • Spectral submanifolds: theory, computation and experimental construction
  • Approximate and exact model reduction techniques
  • Uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis
  • Extreme events in nonlinear systems
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence for nonlinear vibrations
  • Data analysis, structural health monitoring, and nonlinear system identification

Taking into account the ongoing Covid-19 pandemy, the Organizers aim to offer a hybrid conference, with online attendance possible for those who will not be able to travel to Switzerland. The technical aspects are under discussion and further information will be posted here as soon as possible.

The conference is organized by Prof. George Haller (ETH Zurich, Nonlinear Dynamics) and Prof. Eleni Chatzi (ETH Zurich, Structural Mechanics and Monitoring).
