NAFEMS European Conference: Simulation-Based Optimisation

NAFEMS European Conference: Simulation-Based Optimisation


Optimisation has become a key ingredient in many engineering disciplines and has experienced rapid growth in recent years due to innovations in optimisation algorithms and techniques, coupled with developments in computer hardware and software capabilities. The growing popularity of optimisation in engineering applications is driven by ever-increasing competition pressure, where optimised products and processes can offer improved performance and cost-effectiveness which would not be possible using traditional design approaches. However, there are still many hurdles to be overcome before optimisation is used routinely for engineering applications.

The NAFEMS European Conference on Simulation-Based Optimisation will bring together practitioners and academics from all relevant disciplines to share their knowledge and experience, and discuss problems and challenges, in order to facilitate further improvements in optimisation techniques.

The conference will focus on knowledge sharing, with keynote presentations from academia and end users, breakout sessions, and a session on optimisation best practices, tips & tricks. There will also be a vendor panel discussion session, featuring a range of top software and hardware experts.

Call for Presentations

NAFEMS invites you to submit your presentation for consideration. We welcome submissions from across all industries and from every domain engaged in optimisation. We encourage presentations on the use of artificial intelligence, generative design and machine learning in optimisation, in addition to the more traditional optimisation topics.

Submission Requirements

In the first instance, submit your 300-600 word abstract by 31st July 2019.

Abstracts must be marked with presentation title, author's name, organisation, address, phone numbers and email address.

E-mail your abstract to

Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be asked to prepare an extended abstract (approximately 4 pages in length) and a PowerPoint presentation. We will then invite selected authors to produce full written papers, for inclusion in a special edition NAFEMS Journal
