OPTI 2007 is the Tenth International Conference in this successful series on Optimum Design in Engineering.

The objective of this meeting is to communicate recent developments in advanced types of structures, particularly those based on new concepts and new types of materials resulting in optimum solutions.

Particular emphasis will be placed on computational methods to model, control and manage new structural solutions and material types. This integration of their
design together with optimisation technologies is evident in all aspects of industry and research.

Engineering design is enhanced by adding optimisation methods and their influence cannot be over-emphasised. The resulting solutions provide an efficient way of dealing with some of the most difficult challenges in engineering
practice today.

The conference aims to attract papers describing case studies in engineering, considering static, dynamic analysis and damage tolerance. Manufacturing and
structural protection issues are going to be discussed as well as papers on emerging applications in fields such as biomechanics. Contributions on numerical methods and different optimisation techniques are also welcome as well as papers on new software. Optimisation problems of interest to the meeting involve those related to size, shape and topology or material properties.

Previous conferences have been held in Southampton, UK (1989); Boston, USA (1991); Zaragoza, Spain (1993); Miami, USA (1995); Rome, Italy (1997); Orlando, USA (1999); Bologna, Italy (2001); Detroit, USA (2003) and Skiathos, Greece (2005).
