FDTA15: Fractional Derivatives and Their Applications

The 2015 Symposium on Fractional Derivatives and Their Applications (FDTA’15)

as a part of the

The 2015 ASME/IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Embedded Systems and Applications (ASME/IEEE MESA2015)

August 2-5, 2015, Boston, MA, USA and

FDTA (Symposium on Fractional Derivatives and Their Applications) was started by Prof. Om Agrawal and other FDTA colleagues in 2003 IDETC under the ASME DED VIB TC (Technical Committee), which meets on odd years under a DED TC. In 2007 and 2009, FDTA was under TC MSNDC. Starting from 2011, FDTA symposium is under MESA TC for better development of and better service to the FDTA community. ASME/IEEE MESA conference holds every odd year. Please note that ASME DED MESA TC also hosts conferences under IEEE/ASME in even years (e.g. 2010 in Qingdao, China, 2012 in Suzhou, China: and 2014 in Italy where FDTA symposia were also organized and papers were published in ieeeXplore.   

For 2015 FDTA Symposium under ASME/IEEE MESA15, papers are solicited in the area of fractional derivatives and their applications. The subjects of the papers may include, but are not limited to,

  • mathematical modeling of fractional dynamic systems, analytical and numerical techniques to solve these equations, fractional model of viscoelastic damping,
  • large scale finite element models of fractional systems and associated numerical scheme,
  • fractional controller design and system identification,
  • stability analysis of fractional systems, nonlinear and stochastic fractional dynamic systems,
  • fractional order models and their experimental verifications, and applications of fractional models to engineering systems in general and mechatronic embedded systems in particular.

Papers with the e-mail addresses of the authors must be submitted online abstract(s) at  by January 12, 2015. After the abstract submission, you MUST also submit a full length paper for peer review by Jan. 26, 2015. All manuscripts after a successful review procedure will be published in the conference proceedings. It will be EI indexed. For further information, please contact FDTA’15 symposium organizers:
