Springer to publish book series with the Portuguese Centro Internacional de Matematica

November 28, 2012

Springer and the Centro Internacional de Matemática (CIM) of Portugal will work together to publish a new book series CIM Series in Mathematical Sciences. The first book will evolve from the international conference "Mathematics of Energy and Climate Change" which takes place in March 2013 in Lisbon, Portugal. The conference is part of the UNESCO-supported world-wide program "Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013."

Approximately four books will be published annually in the series. Proceedings, lecture course material from summer schools and research monographs will be included in the new series. The Centro Internacional de Matemática will hold editorial responsibility for the books and Springer will handle production, marketing, sales and distribution. The titles will be available as eBooks on Springer's online platform link.springer.com and in print-to-order (PTO) format.

Prof. Alberto Adrego Pinto, President of CIM, said, "The collaboration with Springer will bring mathematics developed in Portugal to a global audience and will help strengthen our contacts with the international mathematics community."

Dr. Martin Peters, Executive Editor Mathematics at Springer, said, "We are very glad to have Centro Internacional de Matemática as a partner. It is clear that the collaboration will result in high-quality publications, and, moreover, it will strengthen our links to mathematicians in Portugal."

Centro Internacional de Matemática is a not-for-profit, privately run association that aims at developing and promoting research in mathematics. At present CIM has 41 associates, including 13 Portuguese universities, the University of Macau, 23 research centers and institutes, and numerous Portuguese scientific societies. CIM was launched as a national project to involve all Portuguese mathematicians and fosters national and international cooperation among mathematicians and other scientists.
