Welcome Message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome you all to the Asian Congress of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization 2022 (ACSMO 2022) to be held at Kunibiki Messe in Matsue, Japan, from 22nd to 26th May 2022.

ACSMO has been held biannually by the Asian Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ASSMO) taking over the series of symposia called the China-Japan-Korea Joint Symposium on Optimization of Structural and Mechanical Systems (CJK-OSM) to exchange idea, and to discuss research in the field of structural and multidisciplinary optimization. Due to COVID-19 ACSMO 2020 was held online. Although we still cannot predict the end of the pandemic, we sincerely hope to hold ACSMO 2022 face to face in Matsue.

ACSMO has been recognized as an official conference endorsed by the ISSMO (International Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization). We cordially invite participants not only from Asia but also from any other areas of the world as well.

Matsue is known as the city of water and surrounded by beautiful nature and history from mythical ages. Matsue Castle is a symbol of the city that is one of few remaining feudal castles in Japan. We sincerely hope that you take the chance to experience the unique culture of Matsue and surrounding area after the academic discussion. We are looking forward to welcoming you in May 2022, face to face.

Katsuyuki Suzuki, Professor
The University of Tokyo
General Chair of ACSMO 2022
