The following themes and organisers for minisymposia are confirmed at this stage. Thanks to all minisymposium organisers.

  1. Graph spectra Domingos Cardoso, Claudia Justel and Renata del Vecchio
  2. Spectral properties of non-negative matrices Carlos Marijuán and Pietro Paparella
  3. Copositive and completely positive matrices and related topics Avi Berman, Mirjam Dür and Naomi Shaked-Monderer
  4. Mathematics of quantum information Rupert Levene and Ivan Todorov.
  5. Combinatorial matrix theory Jane Breen and Roberto Canogar
  6. The Inverse Eigenvalue Problem for graphs Jephian Lin and Polona Oblak.
  7. General preservers Lajos Molnár and Gyorgy Geher
  8. Distance matrices of graphs Projesh Nath Choudhury and Apoorva Khare.
  9. Linear algebra education Anthony Cronin and Sepideh Stewart.
  10. Numerical linear algebra for PDEs Scott MacLachlan and Niall Madden. This mini-symposium will feature takes on varied topics broadly related to linear and nonlinear solvers for problems arising form the discretization of PDEs. As such, it will include elements of both theoretical and applied numerical linear algebra. Speakers who have tentatively agreed to take part include Xiao-Chuan Cai (Colerado), Patrick Farrell (Oxford), Daniel Osei (LLNL), Davide Palitta (Magdeburg), Jennifer Pestana (Strathclyde), John Pearson (Edinburgh), Alison Ramage (Strathclyde), Yousef Saad (Minnesota), Marcus Sarkis (WPI), Daniel Szyld (Temple), and Michael Wathen (RAL).
  11. The Research and Legacy of Richard A. Brualdi Adam Berliner, Louis Deaett and Seth Meyer.
    Richard Brualdi’s career has spanned (no pun intended) nearly six decades.  He is not only a prolific researcher and contributor to the linear algebra, graph theory and combinatorics communities, but he also advised 37 Ph.D. students, the most ever for a mathematician at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.  This mini-symposium features topics related to and/or inspired by Richard’s impressive work.
  12. Matrix positivity: theory and applications Alexander Belton and Dominique Guillot.
  13. Geometric Rigidity Theory James Cruickshank.
  14. History of Linear Algebra Kirk Soodhalter and Jörg Liesen.
  15. Companion Matrix Forms Fernando de Terán and Kevin Vander Meulen.
  16. Riordan Arrays and Related Topics Paul Barry, Gi-Sang Cheon and Tian-Xiao He.
  17. Linear Algebra for Designs and Codes, Ronan Egan, Ilias Kotsireas, Padraig Ó Catháin and Eric Swartz.
  18. Kemeny’s constant on networks and its application Ángeles Carmona, Maria Jose Jimenez and Margarida Mitjana.
  19. Generalized inverses, operator matrices and tensor equations Dragana Cvetkovic Ilic, Yimin Wei and Qing Wen Wang.
  20. Special Matrices Natália Bebiano, Susana Furtado and Mikail Tyaglov.
  21. Tensors for signals and systems Kim Batselier and Philippe Dreesen.
  22. Coding Theory and Linear Algebra over Finite Fields Eimear Byrne, Alberto Ravagnani and John Sheekey.
