The MADELEINE project



The consortium partners are organising a symposium at EUROGEN 2019.

The EUROGEN 2019 conference (Evolutionary and Deterministic Methods for Design, Optimization and Control with Applications to Industrial and Societal Problems) will take place on 12-14 September 2019 in Guimarães, Portugal.

During EUROGEN 2019, the MADELEINE partners are organising a mini-symposium 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 first results but the objective is also to have other contributions from European or international universities, research centres, SMEs and industrial companies. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of the subject, contributions from sectors other than aeronautics are welcome.

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:

  • Prof. K. Giannakoglou (National Technical University of Athens, Greece,
  • Dr. M. Méheut (ONERA, France,
