On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome you all to the Asian Congress of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization 2016 (ACSMO 2016) to be held in Nagasaki, Japan, from 22th to 26th May 2016.
ACSMO 2016 is the first conference hosted by the Asian Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ASSMO) taking over the series of biennial symposia called the China-Japan-Korea Joint Symposium on Optimization of Structural and Mechanical Systems (CJK-OSM), which the last symposium was held as the 8th CJK-OSM in Gyeongju, Korea, in 2014. ASSMO was established by the organizing committee of the 8th CJK-OSM to bring together Asian researchers and practitioners in the field of structural and multidisciplinary optimization (SMO) and to exchange idea, and promote research in all aspects of SMO.
Since the 5th symposium in 2008, the CJK-OSM had been recognized as an official conference endorsed by the ISSMO (International Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization). ACSMO inherits this endorsement. We cordially invite participants not only from Asia but also from any other areas of the world as well.
Nagasaki is an exotic city having mixed cultures of Asia and the West. We sincerely hope that you take the chance to experience the unique culture of Nagasaki after the academic discussion. We look forward to welcoming you to ACSMO 2016 in May 2016.
