Linear Algebra and its Applications


Research and development in linear algebra include theory, algorithm design, and applications in several disciplines. There is an unusual strength in this subject area among the PIMS universities. This has been fostered by the biennial WCLAM meetings. The ninth, 2010 meeting is to be held at BIRS. It will maintain the traditions of (a) bringing in plenary speakers of international repute, (b) providing a forum for our well-established researchers, (c) encouraging the active participation of students and postdocs, (d) (as facilities permit) encouraging participation from across Canada and internationally.


We expect about 40 participants consisting of approximately: 10 organisers and plenary speakers, 12 students and postdocs, and 18 others from PIMS departments and further afield.
