Optimization and Engineering promotes the advancement of optimization methods and the innovative application of optimization in engineering. It provides a forum where engineering researchers can obtain information about relevant new developments in optimization, and researchers in mathematical optimization can read about the successes of and opportunities for optimization in the various engineering fields. We encourage the submission of manuscripts that make a genuine mathematical optimization contribution to a challenging engineering problem.

  • Highlights successful applications of optimization in all engineering disciplines;

    Stimulates the development of novel optimization methods for challenging engineering problems;

    Promotes high-performance computational optimization techniques for data-driven engineering applications;

    Encompasses all mathematical optimization methods and algorithms relevant to engineering.

  • Special Issue on "Optimization Methods in Inverse Problems and Applications to Science and Engineering"

    Guest Editors: H. Kunze (University of Guelph, Canada); D. La Torre (SKEMA Business School, France); and M. Ruiz-Galan (University of Granada, Spain)

    Submission deadline: May 31, 2021

    This special issue aims at bringing together articles that discuss recent advances of optimization methods and algorithms in inverse problems and application to science and engineering.  A typical inverse problem seeks to find a mathematical model that admits given observational data as an approximate solution. This sort of question is of great interest in many application areas, including biomedical engineering and imaging, remote sensing and seismic imaging, astronomy, oceanography, atmospheric sciences and meteorology, chemical engineering and material sciences, computer vision and image processing, ecology, economics, environmental systems, physical systems. Very often an inverse problem appears in the form of a parameter estimation problem, it can be formulated as an optimization model, and then solved using different optimization algorithms and techniques. All papers included in this special issue will consider aspects of numerical analysis, mathematical modeling, and computational methods.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • Rosenbrock Prize

    Optimization and Engineering's Howard Rosenbrock Prize is awarded annually to honor the authors of the best paper published in the journal in the previous year.
