Monday, June 11, 2012 - 8:00pm to Friday, June 15, 2012 - 7:59pm

The workshop will take place at Hotel Villaggio Porto Giardino in
Capitolo, Monopoli, Bari, Italy (

The main aim of this workshop is to put together researchers of different
areas, in particular Mathematics and Engineering, to give them the
opportunity of discussing recent developments in computational and
theroretical methods for:

Non-smooth and piecewise dynamical systems;
Dynamical systems with variable structure;
Discontinuous ODEs;
Sliding motion and Control;
Genetic and Medical Applications;
Numerical methods for ODEs.

Both theoretical and numerical aspects of the previous topics will be
welcome. The workshop will consist of invited lectures, contributed talks
and of a poster session.

The list of speakers is the following one:

Champneys Alan (Bristol University, U.K.)
De Jong Hidde (Inria, Francia)
Di Bernardo Mario (University of Naples, Italy)
Dieci Luca(Georgia Institute of Technology, USA)
Guglielmi Nicola (University of L'Aquila, Italy)
Kupper Tassilo (University of Cologne, Germany)
Piiroinen Petri (National University of Ireland, Ireland)
Usai Elio (University of Cagliari, Italy)
Van Vleck Erik (University of Kansas, USA)

PhD students: To stimulate the participation of PhD students and young
researchers there will be a poster session. The session is restricted to
students, who will be able to showcase their work. Students who have
already made some progress on their thesis, can present a synopsis of
their work, whereas students who are just beginning their thesis, can
present an overview of what they are proposing to study. The main purpose
of this format is to provide PhD students with feedback on their work,
accomplished or planned, in a less formal setting than that of a plenary

Proceedings: A selection of plenary and contributed talks will be considered
for pubblication on a special issue of "Mathematics and Computer in
Simulation" an IMACS journal. More details will be given during the
