The work of Prof. Lacomba comprised research on geometric theory of ordinary differential equations, dynamical systems, and symplectic geometry, with applications to celestial mechanics, classical mechanics, vortex theory, thermodynamics and electrical circuits. Prof.~Lacomba was the leader of a strong research group working in these areas. In 1991 he started organizing, jointly with some members of his group and with other collaborators, the International Symposium on Hamiltonian Systems and Celestial Mechanics (HAMSYS), which became a great success over the next several years. These symposia brought together top researches from several countries, working in the aforementioned topics, as well as many graduate students who had the opportunity to learn from and connect with the experts in the field, and often get inspiration and motivation to improve and finalize their doctoral theses.
The framework for the celebration of the 65th birthday of Prof. Lacomba was the VIth edition of HAMSYS, which was held in México D.F. between November 29  December 3, 2010.
This symposium assembled an impressive number of highly respected researches who generated important discussions among the participants, presented new problems, and identified future research directions. The emphasis of the talks was on Hamiltonian dynamics and its relationship to several aspects of mechanics, geometric mechanics, and dynamical systems in general. The papers in this volume are an outgrowth of the themes of the symposium. All papers that were submitted to this special issue underwent a through refereeing process typical to any top mathematical journal. The accepted papers form the present issue of DCDSA.
The symposium received generous support from CONACYT México and UAMI. Special thanks are due to Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana for hosting the symposium in the beautiful colonial building Casa de la primera imprenta de América. Last but not least, we thank all participants for contributing to a weeklong intense and highly productive mathematical experience.
