Call for papers: special volume “Research in the Mathematics of Materials Science”

Contributions are now being accepted for inclusion in a forthcoming volume “Research in the Mathematics of Materials Science” to be published by Springer in the AWM Series. The planned edition aims at showcasing the multidisciplinary work of women mathematicians in the description of complex materials.


In the past decade, the field of Materials Science has seen a rapid development with an impressive level of success. To provide rigorous basis for the future technological advances, “Research in the Mathematics of Materials Science” seeks to develop tools for the accurate modeling of the multi-scale phenomena. The planned volume will welcome contributions which feature topics covering interfaces of Materials Science with: Mathematical Analysis, Calculus of Variations, Partial Differential Equations, Functional Analysis, Differential Geometry and Topology, Numerical Analysis and Mathematical Modelling.

The collected papers will be both original research and reviews. At least the corresponding author will be female. As a guideline, the length of contributions should be:
– up to 25 pages for research papers,
– up to 10 pages for review papers exposing relevant research results and their context to a broader audience.

In addition to giving a broad and up-to-date panorama of active research topics, the volume will identify new problems, foster future collaborative networks, and promote equal opportunity in Mathematics and Science.


Contributions received by May 31, 2021 will receive full consideration for inclusion. All submitted papers will undergo a refereeing process. Notification of acceptance will be made by September 30, 2021 and the volume is expected to go to print in December 2021.
