The 11th International Student Competition in Structural Optimization

(ISCSO 2022)

1-15 December 2022

ISCSO 2022 is an international student competition in the field of structural optimization. The idea of ISCSO was born over a decade ago. The main aim is to organize an annual online competition to encourage students to solve engineering optimization problems. To this end, a structure and a set of design rules are specified and the participants are asked to optimize the design of the structure within a specific period of time. The participant with the lightest feasible design wins the competition and prize money that is sponsored by MİTAŞ ENERGY. From humble beginnings, ISCSO has now had hundreds of participants from over 30 countries, and winning teams from leading international universities (Past Events). The competition is organized and judged by scientific committee members from different universities all around the world. Interested students at all levels and from all academic disciplines are strongly recommended to take part in ISCSO 2022.
