Linear algebra is an important area of mathematics and it is at the heart of many scientific, engineering, and industrial applications.  Research and development in linear algebra include theoretical studies, algorithmic designs and implementations on advanced computer architectures, and applications to various disciplines.  The SIAM Conferences on Applied Linear Algebra, organized by SIAM every three years, are the premier international conferences on applied linear algebra, which bring together diverse researchers and practitioners from academia, research laboratories, and industries all over the world to present and discuss their latest work and results on applied linear algebra.

Funding Agency

SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of this conference.
