Dinamica e stabilità

First announcement of
GADeS Summer School on

Stability and Bifurcation of Dynamical Systems:
Theoretical Aspects and Applications

July 3-7, 2017, Savona, Italy


The aim of the GADeS Summer School is to give introductive lectures by renowned experts in the field of Dynamical Systems, Machine Dynamics, Solid and Structural Dynamics. The general lectures, held by main speakers, are scheduled in the morning and early afternoon of each day. In the afternoon invited presentations on application aspects will be carried out. Free time will be allocated to actively introduce the participants in the topics covered through proposed exercises.

Main Speakers: Walter D’Ambrogio (‘Numerical analysis of friction-induced instabilities’), Claudio Giorgi (‘Theory of dynamical system’), Angelo Luongo (‘Bifurcation analysis and perturbation methods’), Michele Ciavarella (‘Contact instabilities, Hopf bifurcations and snaking in frictional systems’), Stefania Gatti (‘Global study of the asymptotic behavior’), Daniele Zulli (‘Numerical methods in bifurcation analysis’).

Location: the Summer School will take place at the Savona Campus of the University of Genoa. Famous and protected areas as Bergeggi and Varigotti are located few minutes away from the Savona campus.


Audience: the School is open to international researchers and engineers, including permanent researchers, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers.

Registration Fee: a fee of 150 Euro is required to participants. The fee includes coffee breaks, lunches and a social event. Participants are kindly requested to confirm their presence by June 15th filling out the registration form attached.

Accommodation: 20 sleeping accommodations, among which 5 in single room, are available at discounted price at the Student House of the Campus (approximate price: 25 Euro in double room, 35 Euro in single room). These places will be available for the first applicants who request them at the following link by June 23th (the participants at the Summer School can tick "regolarmente iscritto al Master Universitario o al Corso di Formazione di UNIGE presso il Campus Universitario di Savona").
Other possible accomodations, including two hotels at special prices nearby (from 50 Euro in single room), are indicated at the following link. We are available to assist you in booking.

Organizing Committee: Maria Grazia Naso (University of Brescia), Luisa Carlotta Pagnini (University of Genoa), Giuseppe Piccardo (chairman; University of Genoa)

Administrative Secretary: Elisa Poggi, CIMA Foundation, Savona

Under the patronage of




The aim of GADeS is to promote the scientific interaction between researchers operating in the fields of Solid and Structural Dynamics, Machine Dynamics and Dynamical Systems, as well as the opportunity for improving cooperation with researchers working on Identification and Control problems, independently from the scientific sector, thus in coherence with the AIMETA's statutory spirit. Indeed, the integration of researchers, who are studying particular and/or complementary problems, appears very important since it can enlarge the range of interests of the Group. Therefore, the AIMETA GADeS Group is specifically aimed at sharing knowledge from different sectors, through the organization of workshop, mini-symposia, special sessions in AIMETA's conferences and, last but not least, the coordinated participation to Italian and European research project.
