1^{st} Irish Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory Meeting
de Brún Centre, NUI Galway
Saturday, 8 December 2012
Following immediately after
the 6^{th} de
Brún Workshop on Linear Algebra and Matrix
Theory,
the de
Brún Centre, NUI Galway will host the inaugural Irish Linear Algebra and Matrix
Theory Meeting.
This is an informal one day conference, where scientists with an
interest in linear algebra and its applications can meet each other and
talk about their current research. Participation by
postgraduate students is particularly welcome.
The meeting will take place on the campus of NUI Galway.
There is no registration fee.
The meeting is organised by Steve Kirkland,
NUI Maynooth, Niall

Quinlan, (local organisers) NUI Galway, and
Helena Šmigoc,
UCD.
