The purpose of this symposium is to collect research results related to chaotic behaviors of nonlinear systems in computational science and engineering and to disseminate potential applications of tools in complex system modeling and computational mechanics communities. With the recent development of Immersed Finite Element Method, Extended Finite Element Method, and other modeling strategies, researchers are routinely handling very complicated interactive systems with multiple scales and physical phenomena. However, as we are dealing with complicated nonlinear systems (perhaps not complex yet) with different temporal and spatial scales, we recognize the possibility of having to deal with chaos and related predictability issues. To share results and ideas in theoretical and applied mechanics communities, we would like to propose this symposium on Modeling of Complex Systems.
