Advances in Numerical Linear Algebra: Celebrating the Centenary of the Birth of James H. Wilkinson, May 29-30, 2019
This international workshop focuses on numerical linear algebra (NLA) and will bring together researchers working in NLA to discuss current developments, challenges in the light of evolving computer hardware and the changing needs of applications.
2019 is the centenary of the birth of James Hardy Wilkinson, FRS and Turing Prize winner (1970). See our website about Wilkinson. Wilkinson developed the theory and practice of backward error analysis, particularly in the context of NLA, and produced detailed analyses of algorithms and software implementing those algorithms. He worked with Turing at NPL in the 1940s, and took over the development of the Pilot ACE computer when Turing left NPL. Wilkinson’s legacy endures and one of the aims of the workshop is to take stock of what has changed in error analysis since Wilkinson’s era and to discuss current challenges and ways to approach them.

Contributed Talks and Posters
Delegates can submit, during the registration process, abstracts for consideration as a 15 minute talk or poster presentation. A limited number can be accepted because of time and space constraints. For full consideration you should register by April 1, 2019.
Student and Early Career Funding
A limited amount of funding, up to £150 per applicant, is available to support travel and accommodation for PhD students and early career researchers. This can be requested during the registration process. For full consideration you should register by April 1, 2019.
All talks will take place in Frank Adams Room 1 in the Alan Turing Building of the School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester.The building is 20 minutes walk from the city centre and 15 minutes walk from Piccadilly or Oxford Road train stations; see how to get here.
The organizers are Sven Hammarling, Nick Higham, and Françoise Tisseur.
