Wave motion is the key mechanism of interest to many fields of science, such as mechanics, acoustics, seismology, oceanography, coastal and offshore engineering, electromagnetism, and others. Despite an extreme variety of physical appearances of wave phenomena, different disciplines share many mathematical models and numerical methods.

In recent years there is an increased interest in advanced mathematical models and computational methods for wave problems which cross the borders of specific applications. However, often the communities interested in waves in solids and fluids are working separately. The purpose of this conference is to foster research into different aspects of nonlinear wave phenomena – the theoretical, the computational and the applied – through promoting the transfer of competence over the existing borders of classical research disciplines. The synergy of many fields will serve as final goal.

We focus on essentially nonlinear problems where complicated original mathematical models are derived, innovative ideas are applied for computing, and novel applications are intensively created in a number of research fields. Interaction of nonlinearity with accompanying effects such as changing properties of the medium sheds further light to understanding and forecast of physical phenomena.
