            Fractional calculus has been a major research topic in the last few decades. Applications are broad and include engineering – electrical, mechanical – physics, biology, economy, control, amongst others.

            In this section, the organizers aim to provide a venue where ‘fractional’ researchers can present and discuss the latest achievements, future challenges and exciting new applications of fractional calculus. Topics of this special session include recent developments in the field, focusing, but not limited to: numerical and analytical solutions to fractional order systems, new implementation methods, improvements in fractional order derivatives approximation methods, time response analysis of fractional order systems, fractional calculus in modeling and controller design, applications of fractional calculus in biomedical engineering, nano technologies, chemical engineering, etc.
