8th international Workshop on Variable Structure Systems, Vilanova i la Geltru, Spain, 6-8 September 2004.




Bologna, Italy 6-8 September 2004
An international workshop sponsored by the Italian Society for Chaos and Complexity (SICC) and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society will take place in Bologna from 6th to the 8th September 2004.
The Workshop aims at reviewing the fundamentals and outlining the research perspectives on the use of nonlinear models with complex dynamics in various areas of ICT such as Power Electronics and Switching Systems,
Communication Networks and Coding.
Ph.D. students and young researchers from all branches of ICT are encouraged to participate, as well as to submit their work for poster presentation. This will give them the chance of discussing their research with colleagues and outstanding scientists in the field.
Further details and the application form can be found on
