Visitor Information 
The workshop is sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra. 
In the last decade computational work has become as important as theoretical and experimental work in many branches of science and engineering. Numerical linear algebra is often at the heart of many computational science and engineering problems, such as materials science simulations, computational finance, structural biology, and image and signal processing, just to name a few. The success of such computational work relies heavily on the development of stateoftheart algorithms for solving various numerical linear algebra problems.
The goal of the Workshop on Numerical Linear Algebra in Scientific and Engineering Applications is to bring together computational scientists and researchers in numerical linear algebra to foster interaction and collaboration between the two communities. The workshop will highlight not only numerical linear algebra problems arising from several computational science problems, but it will also present recent developments in the area of numerical linear algebra.
The workshop will feature both invited and contributed talks. A list
of invited speakers will be available shortly. Contributed papers (in
text or postscript) can be submitted by email to Esmond
G. Ng (EGNg@lbl.gov) no later than September 15, 2001.
Notification of acceptance is expected to be around mid September, 2001.
