ECCOMAS is pleased to announce the CISM course “Scientific Machine Learning in Design Optimization” coordinated by Stefanie Elgeti (Wien, A) and Matthias Möller (Delft, NL) which takes place in Udine, Italy, from 18-22 September 2023.

The course is offered in a hybrid format giving the possibility to attend the course also by remote (on Microsoft Teams platform). On-site places are limited and assigned on first come first served basis.

The course sets out to provide a basic understanding of the classic engineering design process and identify potential usage of artificial intelligence in this context. We will proceed by detailing basic theory of machine learning concepts suit­able for (i) geometry representa­tion, (ii) model order reduction, (iii) optimization, and (iv) uncertainty quantification.

The course participants will not only be introduced to the basic concepts, but will also be pointed to open-source implementations of the presented concepts that will allow them to directly include the newly studied methods into their everyday research. To further fa­cilitate this transfer, the course will discuss examples from mechan­ics, where these approaches have been successful.

The course is addressed to an­yone new to machine learning in the mechanics community, be it a doctoral student, a young researcher, or even a senior re­searcher, who would like to try out something new.
