2nd Irish Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory Meeting

School of Mathematical Sciences

University College Dublin

Friday, August 29, 2014



University College Dublin will host the second 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 University College Dublin. There is no registration fee, but please send an email to helena.smigoc@ucd.ie by August 21 with the subject line: LAMAT Subscribe, if you plan to attend the meeting, to facilitate catering arrangements.


The meeting is organized by local organizers Helena Šmigoc and Richard Ellard, and scientific organizers Rachel Quinlan and Thomas Laffey.
