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 Madden and Rachel Quinlan, (local organisers) NUI Galway, and Helena Šmigoc, UCD.
All talks will take place in AC201, main concourse, NUI Galway
