Dear PNWNAS community,
A workshop on numerical linear algebra and optimization will take place
at the University of
British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, on August 8-10, 2013. The scope
of the workshop is
fairly broad, involving the interplay between numerical linear algebra
and optimization, with
special attention to optimization problems concerning eigenvalues and
singular values. The workshop
will honor Michael Overton on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
Please see the conference website
for further details, including the list of confirmed invited speakers.
The conference is hosted by PIMS (Pacific Institute for the Mathematical
Sciences), whose support
is gratefully acknowledged. Other support is pending.
Everyone is warmly invited to attend the workshop. Some travel support
will be available for early-career
researchers and Ph.D. students who participate in the poster session:
see the web page for details.
We look forward to seeing many of our friends and colleagues in August
The organizers: Ioana Dumitriu, Chen Greif, Emre Mengi
