Welcome to NCMDAO 2021

The conference jointly organized by Engineering Design department of the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), Mechanical Engineering department at the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru (IISc) and Design division of the Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI) aims to bring together researchers and industry professionals working in the areas of multidisciplinary design, analysis, and optimization. Established techniques and emerging technologies are equally emphasized to take advantage of the past accomplishments and step up the future of, optimization-based design and model-based systems. The focus is on design and analysis as applicable to optimization of systems. Optimization in aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, biomedical and other application domains are within the scope of this conference.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Structural Optimization: Size, Shape, and Topology
  • Optimization for Design of Materials and Metamaterials
  • Multiscale and Multiphysics Problems
  • Metamodeling or Surrogate Modeling
  • Systems Design and Optimization
  • Machine Learning and Data Science in Optimization
  • Mixed Integer and Linear Programming
  • Evolutionary, Bayesian, and Heuristic Optimization Techniques
  • Uncertainty Quantification, Reliability, and Robustness in Design
  • Optimization and Additive Manufacturing
  • Industry Applications and Case Studies in MDAO
  • Emerging Trends in Optimization
