This is the 12th in a series of biennial meetings that have been held at various sites throughout Western Canada, beginning with an inaugural meeting at the University of Regina in 1993. WCLAM provides an opportunity for researchers and mathematicians in linear algebra and related fields to meet, present accounts of their research, and to hold informal discussions. Although WCLAM has a regional base, the meeting attracts a number of national and international participants. The meeting also enjoys a reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and high quality scientific program.
