Dear Optimisation colleague,

Welcome to this, the ASMO-UK web site. This site provides information on design optimisation and other optimisation-related activities in the UK. You can also find information about our own conference series, the ASMO-UK conferences on Engineering Design Optimization. Since 1999, there have been 10 ASMO-UK conferences. You can access the proceedings for each of these conferences from the left menu.

The last ASMO-UK conference was held in 2014 at the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands on June 30th - July 1st, 2014. Its conference proceedings are now posted in this web site which you can access from the link on the left menu.

This series of conferences provides an opportunity for all researchers on structural and multidisciplinary optimisation within and outside the UK and Ireland to get together and share experience within a growing community. For the next ASMO-UK conference, ASMO-UK 11, we are taking the opportunity to collaborate with the International Conference on Numerical Optimisation Methods for Engineering Design, NOED2016, which is being organised at the completion of the EU Marie Curie Initial Training Networks, About Flow (Adjoint-based Optimisation of Industrial and Unsteady Flows) and AMEDEO (Aerospace Multi-disciplinarity Enabling Design Optimisation). ASMO-UK 11 will be held jointly with NOED2016 at the Technische Universität München, Germany, between July 18th-20th 2016.

I look forward to seeing you again at the 11th ASMO-UK this summer.
