The 16th Conference of the International Linear Algebra Society (ILAS) ,

Pisa, Italy, at Palazzo dei Congressi from June 21 to June 25, 2010


The conference proceedings will appear as a special issue of Linear Algebra and its Applications. The guest editors are Dario A. Bini, Albrecht Böttcher, Luca Gemignani, Leslie Hogben and Françoise Tisseur; the responsible Editor-in-Chief is Volker Mehrmann.
All papers submitted for the conference proceedings will be subjected to the usual LAA refereeing process.

Plenary Lectures (abstracts )

Special Lectures (abstracts )

Invited Minisymposia

Combinatorial Linear Algebra (Shaun Fallat, Bryan Shader) (abstracts )

This minisymposium will highlight recent advances in the use of linear algebra to reveal the intrinsic combinatorial structure of matrices described by graphs and digraphs; and the use of graph theory in developing deeper algebraic and analytic theory for matrices that incorporates the underlying structure of the matrix.
