The conference addresses issues involving advanced types of structures, particularly those based on new concepts or new materials and their system design. Contributions will highlight the latest development in design, optimisation, manufacturing and experimentation in those areas. The meeting also aims to search for higher performance sustainable materials. This scientific event is a new edition of the High Performance and Optimum Design of Structures and Materials Conference and follows the success of a number of meetings on structures and materials and on optimum design that originated in Southampton as long ago as 1989. As the meetings evolved they gave rise to the current series, which started in Seville in 2002, and followed by Ancona in 2004, Ostend in 2006, the Algarve in 2008, Tallinn in 2010, the New Forest, home of the Wessex Institute in 2012, Ostend in 2014, Siena in 2016 and Ljubljana in 2018. The meeting will provide a friendly and useful forum for the interchange of ideas and interaction amongst researchers, designers and scholars in the community to share advances in the scientific fields related to the conference topics. Topics The following list covers some of the topics to be presented at HPSM/OPTI 2020. Papers on other topics related to the objectives of the conference are welcome. Composite materials Material characterisation Experiments and numerical analysis Natural fibre composites Nanocomposites Green composites Composites for automotive applications Transformable structures Environmentally friendly and sustainable structures Structural optimisation Reliability based design optimisation Non deterministic approaches Evolutionary methods in optimisation Aerospace structures Biomechanics application Structures under extreme loading Surface modification Lightweight structures Design for sustainability Design for durability Lifecycle assessment Structural reliability Smart materials and structures Optimization of civil engineering structures Optimization in mechanical engineering Optimization in the car industry Design optimization of tall buildings Metaheuristic algorithms New algorithms for size and topology optimisation BIM tools for design optimization Emerging materials Case Studies
