About S A N S

The Serbian Academy of Nonlinear Sciences (SANS) was established on February 22, 2018 as a result of the decision of the Assembly of the South Slavic Academy of Nonlinear Sciences (JANN) to change its name, to reorganize and adopt the Statute of SANN.

The mission of SANS is to contribute to the comprehensive development of nonlinear sciences in Serbia through coordination of fundamental and applied research; connecting scientists in different fields of nonlinear sciences; organizing scientific meetings, lectures and through publications. To a greater or lesser extent, nonlinearity is present all around us and is studied in almost all sciences.

SANS membership consists of regular members (SANS academicians), as well as corresponding, foreign and honorary members. Academics and corresponding members of SANS are Serbian scientists (full professors or full research professors) who made and are continuing to make a significant contribution to nonlinear sciences, and who have gained scientific reputation in Serbia and abroad.

A brief history of the Academy. During the 1990s, many scientific associations called academies were founded. One such association was the Academy of Nonlinear Sciences (ANS) in Moscow, founded on October 25, 1995. Members of that ANS: Ranislav Bulatović, Veljko Vujičić, Miomir Vukobratović, Vladan Đorđević, and Katica (Stevanović) Hedrih, founded the Yugoslavian department of ANS on May 20, 1998. On July 24, 2001  ANS was officially registered in the Register of Associations of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia as “Yugoslavian Academy of Nonlinear Sciences” (JANS). This academy changed its name to South Slavic Academy of Nonlinear Sciences on June 7, 2009. It existed under that name until February 22, 2018  when it took its present name.

Prof. Veljko Vujičić was the president of JANS from its founding in 1998 until 2014. Since 2014. the president of JANS and then SANS has been Branko Dragovich.
