15th World Congress of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (WCSMO15)

Conference Dates: 5th-9th June 2023

ISSMO-15th World Congress of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (WCSMO15)

International Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO), conducting 15th World Congress on Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (WCSMO-15) hosted in University College Cork, Ireland from 5th-9th June 2023.

The congress brings researchers from all over the world together to exchange ideas, update knowledge, reinforce collaboration, and network with leading researchers. It retains its tradition of high scientific standards and rich social activities. Younger researchers are particularly welcome with affordable participation costs and a number of fellowships on offer.

The scope of WCSMO2023 ranges through mathematical foundations of optimisation algorithms, software development case studies of practical applications in industry and emerging technologies.

Papers from any of the following areas are invited:

  • Structural Optimisation;

The International Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO) was founded in October 1991.  Today ISSMO has almost two thousand  members from more than 50 countries.  

The objectives of ISSMO are:

  • To stimulate and promote research into all aspects of the optimal design of structures as well as multidisciplinary design optimization where the involved disciplines deal with the analysis of solids, fluids or other field problems;

  • To encourage practical applications of optimization methods and the corresponding software development in all branches of technology;

  • To foster the interchange of ideas amongst various fields contributing to structural and multidisciplinary optimization;

  • To provide a framework for the organization of meetings and other means for the dissemination of knowledge on structural and multidisciplinary optimization; and

  • To promote teaching of structural and multidisciplinary optimization in tertiary institutions.
