Kunming, Yunnan, China, October 29-30, 2010

Jointly held with

The third International Workshop on Chaos- Fractals Theories and Applications


The Fifth Asia-Pacific Workshop on Chaos Control and Synchronization (or 5th APWCCS for short) will be held in Kunming, Yunnan, China on October 29-30, 2010. This Workshop is organized by the Centre for Chaos and Complex Networks, City University of Hong Kong, and hosted by the School of Mathematics, Yunnan Normal University, Kunming, Yunnan, China. The workshop is sponsored by the following organizations:

• IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS)

• IEEE CASS Nonlinear Circuits and Systems Technical Committee

• Center for Chaos and Complex Networks, City University of Hong Kong

• Yunnan Normal University, Kunming, Yunnan, China

The main purpose of this Workshop is to bring together leading researchers and experts worldwide, especially those from the Asia-Pacific region, to further promote and develop the cutting-edge research on chaos control and synchronization theory and its engineering applications.

 Main Topics: Topics of interests include but not limited to the following:

Bifurcation analysis and control

Chaos analysis, control and anti-control

Chaos synchronization and de-synchronization

Chaos-based digital encryption and communications

Chaotic neural networks, electronics, circuits and systems

Control and synchronization of complex networks

Bifurcation, chaos and synchronization in electronic, biological and mechanical dynamics

Paper Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers or extended abstracts electronically in PDF or Word format to

Prof. Cuncai Hua:

* Selected papers will be further reviewed and then published in a Special Issue of the International Journal of Bifurcation and Chaos in year 2011.
