Computational Linear Algebra and Optimization for the Digital Economy

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 3:30am to Friday, November 1, 2013 - 11:00am

"Big data" and the digital economy are hot-topics of research at present. As our world becomes digitized (ebooks and library resources, government databases, stock exchange information, Google, social networking, telecommunications, smart-grids, . . . ) huge amounts of data is available to the public. However, the efficient extraction of relevant information from these data banks presents a real challenge for modern day society. More and more often, search methods will require advanced optimization and numerical linear algebra techniques that are scalable to problems of huge dimension.

This workshop brings together world experts in computational linear algebra and optimization, and presents an excellent opportunity for open discussion on cutting-edge research in "big data" and the digital economy. Further information about the workshop (including details of speakers and talks) are available on the workshop website.
