1st International Conference on Mechanical System Dynamics

1st International Conference on Mechanical System Dynamics (1st ICMSD)

November 23- 29, 2021, Nanjing, China

Conference Announcement

Mechanical system dynamics is one of the pillars of almost all industries such as machinery, aero & astronautics, marine engineering, transportation, biology, etc. It is the key technology for almost all industrial equipment. It plays a significant role in leading the development of modern science and technology and receives increasing attention worldwide. The standing International Conference on Mechanical System Dynamics (ICMSD) aims to systematically reveal the vital effect of mechanical system dynamics on the whole lifetime of modern industrial equipment. It serves as a standing international forum for promoting the extensive and in-depth academic exchange on dynamics concerning advanced theory, modeling, computation, analysis, software, design, manufacturing, testing, and evaluation of general mechanical systems. Together with many universities and research institutions all over the world, the standing ICMSD is intended to be held biennially by different institutions in turn in different countries.


The first ICMSD is jointly organized by 13 universities worldwide and hosted by the Nanjing University of Science & Technology (NJUST), Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (CSTAM), the International Association of Applied Mechanics (IAAM), and John Wiley & Sons Inc. Considering the worldwide governmental restrictions on traveling, gathering, and meeting to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus, we decide to take a hybrid mode (in person and online) depending on the situation at the end of this November.

Topics (BUT NOT LIMITED)

Both fundamental and applied research concerning the dynamics of all kinds of mechanical systems are welcome. The systems concerned include not only various machinery and structures of different scales, but also integrated mechanical systems with multi-physics/multi-disciplinary nature. The conference emphasizes the “system” point of view and system-level tools for understanding the dynamics. It encourages topics with scientific problems emerging from practical engineering and solved by system dynamics approaches. These are the unique features and advantages of ICMSD, which are extremely significant and helpful for efficiently solving dynamics problems associated with complex mechanical systems. Investigations on more general dynamical systems such as complex fluid systems, aerodynamic systems, fractal systems, granular materials, particle fluid, soft materials, metamaterials, and micro-/nano-particles are also welcome if they involve or contribute to the advancement of the mechanical system dynamics field.


Typical topics of mechanical systems dynamics include, but are not limited to:

  • Modeling, computation, and software developments

    • Formulation of multibody system or finite element system dynamics with characteristics such as time varying parameters, time delay, nonlinearity, large deformation, friction, contact and impact, fatigue and fracture, multi scale

About Nanjing [From Wikipedia, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanjing for details]

Nanjing, is the capital of Jiangsu province of the People's Republic of China and the second largest city in the East China region. With 11 districts, Nanjing, which is located in southwestern Jiangsu, has an administrative area of 6,600 km2 and a total population of 8,505,500 as of 2019.


Situated in the Yangtze River Delta region, Nanjing has a prominent place in Chinese history and culture, having served as the capital of various Chinese dynasties, kingdoms and republican governments dating from the 3rd century to 1949, and has thus long been a major center of culture, education, research, politics, economy, transport networks and tourism, being the home to one of the world's largest inland ports. Nanjing is also considered a Global City with a 'Beta' classification, together with Chongqing, Hangzhou and Tianjin according to GaWC, and ranked as one of the world's top 100 cities in the Global Financial Centres Index.


Nanjing has many high-quality universities and research institutes, with the number of universities listed in 100 National Key Universities ranking third. The ratio of college students to total population ranks No.1 among large cities nationwide. Nanjing has the eighth-largest scientific research output of any city in the world and has been regarded as one of the world's top three scientific research centers in chemistry (behind Beijing and Shanghai), according to the Nature Index.


Nanjing, one of the nation's most important cities for over a thousand years, is recognized as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. It has been one of the world's largest cities, enjoying peace and prosperity despite wars and disasters. Nanjing served as the capital of Eastern Wu (229–280), one of the three major states in the Three Kingdoms period; the Eastern Jin and each of the Southern dynasties (Liu Song, Southern Qi, Liang and Chen), which successively ruled southern China from 317–589; the Southern Tang (937–75), one of the Ten Kingdoms; the Ming dynasty when, for the first time, all of China was ruled from the city (1368–1421); and the Republic of China under the nationalist Kuomintang (1927–37, 1946–49) prior to its flight to Taiwan by Chiang Kai-Shek during the Chinese Civil War. The city also served as the seat of the rebel Taiping Heavenly Kingdom (1853–64). Nanjing has always been a cultural center attracting intellectuals from all over the country. In the Tang and Song dynasties, Nanjing was a place where poets gathered and composed poems reminiscent of its luxurious past; during the Ming and Qing dynasties, the city was the official imperial examination center (Jiangnan Examination Hall) for the Jiangnan region, again acting as a hub where different thoughts and opinions converged and thrived. Today, with a long cultural tradition and strong support from local educational institutions, Nanjing is commonly viewed as a 'city of culture' and one of the more pleasant cities to live in China.


Nanjing has many important heritage sites, including the Presidential Palace and Sun Yat-sen Mausoleum. Nanjing is famous for human historical landscapes, mountains and waters such as Fuzimiao, Ming Palace, Chaotian Palace, Porcelain Tower, Drum Tower, Stone City, City Wall, Qinhuai River, Xuanwu Lake and Purple Mountain. Key cultural facilities include Nanjing Library, Nanjing Museum and Jiangsu Art Museum.
