This special issue contains a concise account of significant research results presented at the international workshop on Advanced Computational and Experimental Techniques in Nonlinear Dynamics, which was held in Cusco, Peru in August 2015. The meeting gathered leading experts, as well as new researchers, who have contributed to different aspects of Nonlinear Dynamics. Particularly significant was the presence of many active scientists from Latin America. The topics covered in this special issue range from advanced numerical techniques to novel physical experiments, and reflect the present state of the art in several areas of Nonlinear Dynamics. It contains seven review articles, followed by twenty-one regular papers that are organized in five categories, namely (1) Nonlinear Evolution Equations and Applications, (2) Numerical Continuation in Self-sustained Oscillators, (3) Synchronization, Control and Data Analysis, (4) Hamiltonian Systems, and (5) Scaling Properties in Maps.
