4th IMA Conference on Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimisation

Date 3 – 5 September 2014
Location University of Birmingham

The IMA and the University of Birmingham are pleased to announce the Fourth Biennial IMA Conference on Numerical Linear Algebra and Optimization. The meeting is co-sponsored by SIAM, whose members will receive the IMA members’ registration rate.



The success of modern methods for large-scale optimisation is heavily dependent on the use of effective tools of numerical linear algebra. On the other hand, many problems in numerical linear algebra lead to linear, nonlinear or semidefinite optimisation problems. The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers from both communities and to find and communicate points and topics of common interest.
Conference topics include any subject that could be of interest to both communities, such as:
• Direct and iterative methods for large sparse linear systems.
• Eigenvalue computation and optimisation.
• Large-scale nonlinear and semidefinite programming.
• Effect of round-off errors, stopping criteria, embedded iterative procedures.
• Optimization issues for matrix polynomials
• Fast matrix computations.
• Compressed/sparse sensing
• PDE-constrained optimisation
• Applications and real time optimisation

Michele Benzi (Emory University)
Iain Duff (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and CERFACS Toulouse) – SIAM UKIE Speaker
Michael Friedlander (University of British Columbia) – NAG Distinguished Lecturer
Andreas Grothey (University of Edinburgh)
Joerg Liesen (TU Berlin)
