The conference brought together scientists working in the field of nonlinear dynamics and applied mechanics, and contributions were invited in these areas focussing on the mathematical modelling, analysis and applications in engineering.

Each contributing participant was invited to submit one 1 page A4 abstract using the provided template. All abstracts were reviewed and selected full papers were invited for submission to specified peer review journals. Corresponding authors were provided with detailed feedback on their submissions.

Selected authors were invited to submit papers to the International Journal of Mechanical Sciences, International Journal of Nonlinear Mechanics and Acta Mechanica Sinica. Papers were submitted within one month of the conference.
