The Galway ILAS Conference, originally scheduled for June 2020, is now planned for June 20-24 2022. We hope to see you then in Galway!
Abstract submission is now CLOSED, except for the poster session, for which submissions are welcome until June 3.
Registration remains OPEN, although the early bird deadline has passed.

The 24th Conference of the International Linear Algebra Society will take place in Galway, Ireland, June 20-24, 2022. The venue will be the beautiful riverside campus of the National University of Ireland, Galway. All talks will take place at the north end of the Arts and Science Building (see location on Google maps), all rooms are on the ground floor and close together.

The programme will follow a similar format to recent ILAS conferences – lectures and minisymposia from Monday to Friday, with an excursion on Wednesday afternoon followed by a banquet on Wednesday evening. In addition to the plenary lectures, there will be a full programme of minisymposia and contributed sessions, with an early finish on Friday to facilitate travel. Minisymposium talks and contributed talks will be scheduled in 30-minute slots, with three or four talks in a session. The 30-minute slot includes 20 minutes for the talk, five minutes for questions and discussion, and five minutes for set-up and for participants to move between rooms.

The conference theme is “Classical Connections”. This will be reflected in the plenary programme and minisymposia, and all participants are encouraged to think about relating their themes to their historical roots. Contributions on all aspects of linear algebra and its applications are welcome. The conference proceedings will be published as a special issue of Linear Algebra and its Applications. Details of registration, abstract submission and dates will be posted here by February 28 2022.

The campus is located within a 15 minute walk of the city centre, which is small but very lively, with options for dining, socializing and cultural activities to suit all tastes and budgets. We are within 2km of the nearest Atlantic beaches. We are on the edge of Europe and within easy reach of the spectacular scenery of Ireland’s west coast. Our city and hinterland are geographically and culturally special, and we are looking forward to welcoming the international linear algebra community to Galway next year.

Note to prospective participants: we have become aware that some intending participants have been contacted by a hotel booking agency, purporting to act on behalf of the conference and requesting confirmation of booking arrangements. We advise against engaging with such communications, which have no link to the conference and whose reliability we cannot confirm. Information on accommodation options, including on campus, can be found under “Galway” in the main menu.
