SMAI, the French professional society for applied and industrial mathematics, has committed to the founding of a new journal of computational mathematics: the SMAI Journal of Computational Mathematics, or SMAI-JCM, which will be freely accessible to all, and will not require the payment of fees for publication. The journal welcomes submissions addressing

- Computational linear and nonlinear algebra

- Numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations

- Discrete and continuous optimization and control

- Computational geometry and topology

- Image and signal processing

- Processing of large data sets

- Numerical aspects of probability and statistics; assessment of uncertainties in computational simulations

- Computational issues arising in the simulation of physical or biological phenomenon, engineering, the social sciences or other applications

- Computational issues arising from new computer technologies

- Description, construction and review of test cases and benchmarks
