It is my great pleasure to announce the 5th International conference of Vibro-impact Systems to be held in Tokyo from 29th March to 2nd April 2021. It follows the previous conference, successfully organised in Germany in 2018. This conference series is driven by the International Centre of Vibro-impact Systems (ICoVIS) founded in 2004 together with the inauguration conference in Loughborough University, UK.

Please access http://www.icovis.org/events/ for information about the activities and previous invents of the ICoVIS.

The organising committee cordially welcomes academic and industrial researchers from all over the world to present their research efforts and achievements, broadly related to the area of vibro-impact systems and nonlinear mechanics in this conference at attractive world-renowned city of TOKYO, JAPAN.

The style of the conference is based on common sessions without parallel ones, for all the participants to exchange their ideas and knowledge, and make acquaintanceship with the entire audience. The organising committee plans to provide a supportive and engaging environment for all participants of this conference.

We encourage you to start making your plans to join the conference and pre-register now. Pre-registration has already opened — see Pre-registration.

We are looking forward to meeting you at ICoVIS 2021 in Tokyo.
