The conference scope covers the following subjects including both basic aspects and advanced applications:

- General problems of nonlinear dynamics and nonlinear wave phenomena (including recent developments in nonlinear stochastic processes, solitons dynamics, rogue waves in nature, nonlinear sound, biological physics, etc.);
- Nonlinear optics and physics of extreme light (including recent developments in high-power lasers, ultrahigh intensity laser-plasma interaction, strong-field physics, intensive terahertz radiation and its interaction with matter, etc.);
- Nonlinear problems in geophysics (including recent developments in geosciences and climate research, nonlinear processes in boundary layers, nonlinear climate processes in polar regions, high-energy processes in lightning physics, active experiments in the ionosphere and magnetosphere and others);
- Nonlinearities in quantum systems and quantum optics (including recent developments in physics of cold gases and Bose-Einstein condensates, quantum control, physics of coherent phenomena in quantum systems, optoelectronics, THz physics, etc.);
- Nonlinear processes and turbulence in fluids and plasmas (including recent developments in nonlinear fluid dynamics, conventional and alternative projects of magnetic fusion, etc.);
- Nonlinear problems in astrophysics (including recent developments in cosmology, galactic and extragalactic astronomy, dark matter phenomena, formation of supernovae, relativistic jets, accretion disks, black holes, etc. );
- New trends in material science (nanostructuring, metamaterials, nanophotonics, ceramics, CVD diamonds and plasmonic materials).

The conference program will include topical oral and poster sessions, and more than 20 plenary lectures on the hot problems of a wide interest.
