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-synchronization theory and its engineering applications. 


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

                Bifurcation analysis and control

                Chaos analysis, control and anti-control

                Chaos synchronization and anti-synchronization

                Chaos-based digital encryption and communications

                Chaotic neural networks, electronics, circuits and systems

                Control and synchronization of complex networks
