FDTA19: Fractional Derivatives and Their Applications

The 2019 Symposium on Fractional Derivatives and Their Applications (FDTA2019)

as a part of the

The 2019 ASME/IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Embedded Systems and Applications 

(The 15th ASME/IEEE MESA2019 CFP.pdf)

August 18-21, 2019, Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA, USA and 

(Please check out two other symposia collocated: SUAVTAAIET-for-MESA)

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. MESA TC hosted FDTA2011 in Washington DC, FDTA2013 in Portland OR, FDTA2015 in Boston, MA, and FDTA2017 in Cleveland, OH.

Please note that ASME DED MESA TC also hosts conferences under IEEE/ASME in even years (e.g. 2008 in Beijing, China (papers), 2010 in Qingdao, China (papers), 2012 in Suzhou, China (papers): 2014 in Italy (papers), and 2016 in Aukland NZ, (papers) and MESA2018 in Oulu, Finland) where FDTA symposia were also organized and papers were published in  

For 2019 FDTA Symposium under ASME/IEEE MESA19, 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,
  • fractional calculus based models for cyber-physical systems (CPS) and cyber-human systems (CHS), and in general, intelligent adaptive systems (IAS),
  • fractional calculus based better characterization of complex systems in general,
  • applied fractional calcuclus in big data analytics and variability quatification,
  • applied fractional calculus in machine learning for more optimal way to optimize ...

Paper submission is a two stage process. Papers with the e-mail addresses of the authors must be submitted online abstract(s) at  by March  4th, 2019. After the abstract submission, you MUST also submit a full length paper for peer review by March  4th, 2019. This deadline is very rigid - so be on time or earlier! All manuscripts after a successful review procedure will be published in the conference proceedings. It will be EI-indexed (for example, FDTA2003 Chicago, FDTA2005 Long Beach, FDTA2007 Las Vegas, FDTA2009 San Diego, FDTA2011 Washington DC, FDTA2013 Portland,  FDTA2015 Boston, FDTA2017 Cleveland).
