Linear Algebra and Its Applications Conference
Manchester, July 1995

THE INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS & ITS APPLICATIONS

In conjunction with the Manchester Centre for Computational Mathematics

Sponsored by The MathWorks, Inc. and Wolfram Research, Inc.

Monday 10th to Wednesday 12th July, 1995 University of Manchester

The conference aims to cover the latest developments in numerical linear algebra, matrix theory and applications of linear algebra. It immediately follows ICIAM 95 in Hamburg. The conference will consist of two and a half days of invited and contributed talks and posters, with an excursion on the Tuesday afternoon and a conference dinner on Tuesday evening. An application form to attend the conference will be available early in 1995. The deadline for abstracts is December 31, 1994. See the call for papers link below.
