International Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO)
14th World Congress of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization
June 13th-18th, 2021
An All-Virtual Conference
On behalf of the International Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO), we are very pleased to invite you to participate in the 14th World Congress on Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (WCSMO-14). While it is impossible to predict the COVID-19 developments until June 2021 at this time, there are too many factors that make it unlikely to have an international in-person conference next year. Accounting in addition for the overall uncertainty and anxiety about travel restrictions and safety, WCSMO-14 will be held as all-virtual conference from June 13th-18th, 2021.
The main objectives of the conference are to stimulate and promote research on all aspects of structural and multidisciplinary optimization and related topics. This includes optimization theory, algorithm and method development, and science and engineering applications involving structures, fluids, and other physical phenomena, as well as their interactions. Contributions to practical applications of optimization methods and software development in all branches of structural and multidisciplinary optimization are encouraged.
