General Info

The International Conference "Dynamical Systems – Theory and Applications" (DSTA) has an over 25-year-long history. It takes place every two years in Lodz, the third biggest city of Poland, and is organized by the Department of Automation, Biomechanics and Mechatronics of the Lodz University of Technology under the patronage of the Committee of Mechanics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The main objective of DSTA is to provide a common platform for exchange of new ideas and results of recent research in the field of theoretical and technological advances in modern dynamical systems.

The recognition of DSTA constantly increases, which is illustrated by the growing number of participants (see Statistics). This allows us to suppose that also this year's edition will an unforgettable event staying in the memory of all participants for a long time!

The accepted papers and keynote speeches will be published in Edited Books. Also, the Scientific Committee will recommend the extended versions of the most prominent papers for publication in special issues of highly reputable journals.

After DSTA 2017, three volumes of conference edited books, two volumes of Springer Proceedings in Mathematics and Statistics, and 8 special issues of JSCR-ranked journals were published! (see Previous Publications).

English is the official language of the conference.


The scope of DSTA 2019 covers the following topics:

  • bifurcations and chaos in dynamical systems
  • asymptotic methods in nonlinear dynamics
  • dynamics in life sciences and bioengineering
  • original numerical methods of vibration analysis
  • control in dynamical systems
  • optimization problems in applied sciences
  • stability of dynamical systems
  • experimental/industrial studies
  • vibrations of lumped mass and continuous systems
  • non-smooth systems
  • engineering systems and differential equations
  • mathematical approaches to dynamical systems
  • mechatronics


After the DSTA 2017:

  • 250 persons
