Theme: The goal of this minisymposium is to spread recent developments, and stimulate new research, on structured matrices with applications in various fields of pure and applied science. Future collaborations among researchers will also be promoted. Particular attention will be given to tridiagonal, k-Toeplitz, Hankel, reciprocal, stochastic, Hurwitz and birth and death matrices.  The use of these matrices in such areas as statistics, numerical analysis, engineering, economics and physics will be discussed.
