The aim of this minisymposium is to contribute to the increasing of the aerodynamic performances of flying configurations (FCs) , in transonic and in supersonic flow.

Material and methods
Two cooperative procedures can be used to this purpose, namely by active and/or passive boundary layer control and by multidisciplinary global optimization of the FC's shape. The multipoint global optimal design by morphing using movable leading edge flaps can also contribute to the increasing of the aerodynamical performances of an FC, during a given mission.

The principal expected results of the minisymposium are to demonstred that by using modern computation it is possible to design more perfomant and therefore more economical and ecological avoidable high speed air-craft.

Last but not least aim, is to gather and to share the knowledges on these two fields, which can contribute to the increase of the performances of high speed aircraft, by using two different and cooperative methods
