Third International Workshop on

Surrogate Modelling and Space Mapping
For Engineering Optimization
(SMSMEO 2012)

August 9-11, 2012
Reykjavik University, Iceland
A three-day workshop on surrogate modeling and space mapping for engineering optimization will be held at Reykjavik University, August 9-11, 2012. The focus will be on techniques and practical applications suited to physically-based design optimization of computationally expensive engineering devices and systems through fast, inexpensive surrogate models, as well as space mapping technology.

The objective is to provide a forum to review and discuss the state of the art in the theory and practice of engineering optimization using surrogates. The workshop will feature several lectures by leading experts in the field as well as a number of technical sessions.

Reykjavik is Iceland's largest city and also the most northerly capital in the world. Iceland marks the boundary between both the Eurasian Plate and the North American Plate. It is an amazing country with magnificent landscapes, unique geological structure, volcanoes, glaciers, geysers, geothermal and hydropower energy. Click here for a video trip around Iceland.
