MADELEINE at the 14th WCCM & ECCOMAS Congress 2020


The 14th World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM XIV) and 8th European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering (ECCOMAS 2020) will take place on 19-25 July 2020 in Paris.


The MADELEINE partners are organising a minisymposium entitled "Adjoint methods for multi-physics, including Applications”.

This symposium is dedicated to the development, validation and applications of multidisciplinary adjoint-based optimization methods. Until today, adjoint-based methods have mainly been used in industry for pure aerodynamic design. In order to meet in a near future the industrial objectives in terms of competitiveness and environmental impact, multi-disciplinary aspects and couplings will become key design drivers, among other, for aircraft and engine manufacturers.

The aim of this symposium is to present the progresses made on multi-disciplinary adjoint-based optimisation ranging from academic developments up to industrial and complex applications. In this symposium, several project partners will present their most relevant results after 2 years of work but the objective is also to have other contributions from European or international universities, research centres, SMEs and industrial companies among the “adjoint community”. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of the subject, contributions from sectors other than aeronautics are also expected (car and energy industries for instance).

We invite you to participate in the symposium. The extended abstract (4-5 pages) or draft paper (up to 8 pages) should be submitted as described on the conference website, with a copy to the symposium organizers:

  • Dr. Michaël Méheut (ONERA, France)
  • Dr. Shahrokh Shahpar (Rolls Royce, United Kingdom)
  • Prof. Kyriakos Giannakoglou (National Technical University of Athens, Greece)
