Author Guidelines

CAIM is one of the official journals of the Italian Society for Applied and Industrial Mathematics (SIMAI). Contributions to CAIM should fall within the broadly understood scope of the journal outlined in the statement of scope and focus.

local taxes where applicable for each article accepted for publication, as contribution to the expenses. Furthermore, in submitting a manuscript authors acknowledge that at least one author is expected to become SIMAI members upon acceptance of the paper.
