10th JMD Webinar, “Topology Optimization.” 

The Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) invites you to attend the 10th thematic session of the JMD Webinar, “Topology Optimization.”  The webinar will be held on November 14, 2023, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm EST.Attendance is free, but advance registration is required.

The JMD Webinar is a series of webinars organized quarterly by JMD’s Editorial Board in order to feature interesting research work being published in the journal.  Our intention is to share the latest research published in the journal, and by doing so, keep the engineering design research community connected.

Each webinar will include two sessions:
(1) a90-minute Zoom webinar session in which selected papers will be featured with presentations and Q&As and
(2) an optional 30-minute gather.town session for further discussion and networking among speakers and attendees.
