Shape optimization is an important branch of design optimization that finds useful applications in the emerging field of computational engineering and has already been considered a necessity in several industries, such as aerospace and automobile. However, open problems and challenges remain at the frontiers of shape optimization, especially when dealing with large-scale problems. Does a complex engineering application have a shape-optimal solution? What is the appropriate shape parameterization for a particular application? How to perform shape optimization that requires solving very expensive governing equations? For decades, shape optimization has attracted the interests of mathematicians, computer and computational scientists, and engineers, rendering its interdisciplinary nature. While areas such as numerical analysis, geometric modeling, scientific computing, mathematical programming, and control theory are classical and center to shape optimization. Opportunities are open to emerging areas, such as machine learning.

This mini-symposium aims to bring together researchers from industry and academia to discuss a variety of related computational efforts, bridging the gap between the two, and foster future collaborations.

Scope: ""Large-scale problems"" are broadly defined, including shape optimizations, where expensive simulations, uncertainty quantification are involved, or the formulated optimization problem is large-scale and challenging.
Thus, suitable topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Non-parametric shape optimization
2. Adjoint methods, multidisciplinary shape optimization
3. Acceleration of shape optimization via model order reduction
4. High-performance computing in shape optimization
5. Shape optimization with level-set methods
6. Efficient shape regularization methods
7. Shape parameterization methods for large and complex geometries
8. Data-driven, machine learning approaches to shape optimization
9. Mathematical programming for large-scale shape optimizations
