About the conference MILOVY 2002

The conference Computational Linear Algebra with Applications, MILOVY 2002 was held from August 4 to August 10, 2002 at the Devet Skal Hotel (literally "Nine Rocks") in Milovy. The conference was attended by 97 participans from 21 countries.


The conference was organized by the Institute of Computer Science AS CR, Prague in collaboration with the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University; Institute of Mathematics AS CR and Technical University Liberec.

Support and sponsors

The conference was supported by GAMM (Gesellschaft fuer Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik), sponsored by NSF (National Science Foundation) and it has been endorsed by ILAS (The International Linear Algebra Society).

Scientific Programme

The meeting was concentrated on computational methods, namely on methods of numerical linear algebra, their (parallel) implementations and applications. The program was devided into subthemes like, e.g., matrix theory and its applications, sparse direct solvers, iterative methods for linear systems, preconditioning techniques, large-scale eigen-problems, inverse problems and regularization. Special attention was paid to application areas not restricted to PDE's, control, optimization or image processing.
Selected papers from the Milovy 2002 conference have been published in a special issue of BIT Numerical Mathematics, Volume 43, Number 5, 2003.
