Mathematics in Science and Industry (MSI) is the official journal of CAIMS/SCMAI. In 2021 there were two issues

  • MSI Volume 3 (https://caims.ca/msi-volume-3/), which includes
    the special issue “Mathematics of Signal Processing in Complex Networks and Systems”
  • MSI Volume 4 (https://caims.ca/msi-volume-4/), which includes
    the special issue “Biochemical Problems, Mathematical Solutions”.

MSI is published by the American Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS).
It is open access, indexed and currently free for authors.
We invite submission of high-quality papers and proposals for special issues.

4. Webinar on Gender Equality in Science (SCGES) hosted by ICIAM

ICIAM is a founding member of the Standing Committee for Gender Equality in Science (SCGES).

In 2022 SCGES is launching a Webinar Series, taking advantage of the global and interdisciplinary structure of the Committee. The aim of the Webinar Series is to create exchanges and interactions related to issues around gender equality in science among various scientific communities. The organizer of the Webinar Series is Professor Carol Woodward, ICIAM’s representative in SCGES.

The first session of the SCGES Webinar will focus on gender equality in mathematics and will take place on
Wednesday 16th February, 16:00 to 18:00 Central European Time (CET).
This webinar will feature a talk on the results of the gender gap project as they pertain to mathematics and a panel discussion with three past presidents of the Association for Women in Mathematics, moderated by Carol Woodward.

A poster of the announcement of the Webinar is found in
Feel free to distribute it as widely as possible.

To join the webinar, participants should register at the SCGES website:


Registration is free, but needed to receive the link to access the webinar.
