Invited Plenary Speakers

The organizers and program committee will be inviting three
plenary speakers to give presentations on current sparse matrix
research. The information will appear in the conference program
which will be available in mid-July, 1996.

Conference Themes

o Applications
o Iterative Methods for Non-Hermitian Matrices
o Parallel Sparse Direct Methods
o Preconditioning Techniques
o Sparse Eigenvalue Computations
o Sparse Methods in Optimization
o Sparse Regularization and Rank-Deficient Methods
o Structured matrices

Conference Scope

The field of Sparse Matrices is a broad and important area of the
computational sciences that includes structured matrices and
those with seemingly little or no structure. The relevance of
the field is highlighted by the wide range of application areas
that require the exploitation of matrix sparsity/structure in
order to achieve a solution given real world constraints on
computing resources and/or time.

The Second SIAM Conference on Sparse Matrices will bring together
scientists working in the field of sparse matrix computations and
those formulating problems resulting in sparse matrix problems.
The intent is to provide a venue for the exchange of problems,
ideas, new results and a discussion of future trends.

As a community we have experienced significant advancements since
the last SIAM Conference on Sparse Matrices held at Salishan
Lodge in Glen Eden Beach, Oregon. This conference will allow us
to come together to assess our achievements and to look to the
challenges of future problem.

How to Participate

The program committee invites you to participate in this exciting
conference by submitting an extended abstract not more than one
page in length. The abstract should include the title, the
author's name, mailing address, e-mail address, and the name of
speaker (if jointly authored). Please include a list of keywords
(at most 5) in order of importance.

Electronic submissions are encouraged. If you need a LaTeX macro
to format your one-page, single-spaced extended abstract, send
your request for a macro to

Completed abstracts should be sent to each of the following:

and should arrive on or before APRIL 15, 1996 to be considered
for presentation.

The committee will select from the abstracts, long presentations
(1 hour) and short presentations (30 minutes).

Conference Format

The meeting will be similar to that of the 1989 SIAM Symposium on
Sparse Matrices. This will be a 3-day meeting. There will be
about six 1-hour talks that will NOT occur in parallel and short
presentations (30 minutes each) scheduled in parallel. We expect
to limit the number of parallel sessions to three.

Conference Location

The conference will be held in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, at The Coeur
d'Alene Resort. The resort is located right on Lake Coeur
d'Alene among the Bitterroot Mountains of Northern Idaho. It is
45 minutes by car from Spokane International Airport in Spokane,
Washington. In early October the days should be sunny and the
nights cool and clear.

World Wide Web

Information regarding the conference can be accessed in
electronic format through the World Wide Web:

Registration Information

The conference program, registration information, and hotel
reservation form will be available in mid-July 1996. To ensure
receiving your copy, complete and return the reply card.
