Palaiseau, Feb 3, 2002

Dear Colleague,

I am organizing a workshop on 
OPTIMAL DESIGN OF STRUCTURES and MATERIALS
that will be held at
Laboratoire de Micanique des Solides (LMS)
Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau (~10 miles from Paris), France
and that is dedicated more particularly to ASME members.

I know about your important activities in this area.
that is why I would like to sollicitate your participation and to
invite your colleagues and relations..

Could you, please, forward this call for papers to all your local 
members.
I should be very pleased and honoured if you could participate too.

Best thanks and regards

Prof Joseph Zarka

                CALL FOR PAPERS
                   WORKSHOP
           OPTIMAL DESIGN OF STRUCTURES
 Laboratoire de Mecanique des Solides
  Ecole Polytechnique
       France
              November 25-27, 2002


The 3 day-workshop is dedicated to Mechanical and Civil Engineers
and researchers who have to design structures, materials subjected 
to any kind of loadings such as elevated temperatures and high 
pressures, cyclic and dynamic loads, seismes, CRASH, rolling and 
wear and who require moreover an optimal solution.
Special multidisciplanry sessions will be organized.
In order to provide clear presentations
and active discussions, there will be no more than 50 participants
and only 24 lectures will be accepted.

If you want to submit papers, please e-mail or fax, as soon
as possible, an abstract including full names, addresses,
telephone, e-mail addresses, of the corresponding author to the 
animator.


For additional informations, please contact the animator.

Note the following deadlines:

Abstract                                     April 20, 2002

Manuscript for Technical Review              June 20, 2002

Final Manuscript (PdF format)                September 15, 2002

The Registration fee (including, the 3 meals, the banquet and 
coffee breaks)   wil be
 before october 1,2002     600 US $ after this date     800 US $

Directeur de Recherches au CNRS
Since 1986, he participated in developing several consultant 
companies such as MECALOG or CADLM (a transfert/research center 
for mechanical, civil-engineering, transportation, off-shore and 
military industries) where he is the Scientific Director.
His previous scientific interests were in micromechanical 
constitutive modeling of materials, numerical analysis of 
structures, new formulations and simple analysis of inelastic 
structures and non-destructive tests.
His current research interests are towards the applications of 
a new approach for INTELLIGENT optimal design of materials and 
structures, control of manufacturing and survey of structures 
based on the coupling the existing knowledge of
experts, numerical results, and experimental data,
with special automatic learning and optimization techniques.
