Sparse Days Meeting on Sparse Linear Algebra

Sparse Days Meeting 2020

Sparse Days Meeting 2020 

23-24 November 2020


Virtual Workshop

The annual Sparse Days meeting will be held this year as a virtual event, on 23 - 24 November 2020.

Sadly, because of the pandemic, we will not be able to have a normal face-to-face Sparse Days at Cerfacs this year.

We will be holding an online version from 2pm to 7pm on 23 and 24 November. The timing is chosen to accommodate participants from North America since, at normal Sparse Days, we have a good representation from there.

A registration form  is available on this conference website where you can also submit a title and an abstract for any proposed talk.
We will probably be using the Youtube system and will post details about how to connect to all people who register.

Although the meeting is now online, we plan to have the same flavour as for previous Sparse Days.
That is to say having a relaxed programme with short talks and scheduled coffee breaks for less formal discussion. Sadly, there will not be a Conference Dinner this year. We already have arranged for talks by a few well known senior people but as usual, have plenty of room and encouragement for students and young researchers.

Although we have set a deadline of 6 November 2020, it would be very good if you could register well before then, especially if you are planning on giving a talk.

As usual, any talk that even loosely fits our conference title is welcome.
In order to keep a relaxed format and to accommodate all anticipated talks within the programme, we would encourage short talks (20 minutes including questions), but are happy to include longer or shorter ones on request.

SPARSE DAYS Annual Meeting


Virtual Workhosp


The Annual Sparse Days meeting is an informal one or two days event hosted by Cerfacs, in Toulouse, France and is proposed this year as a virtual event only.

Talks on any aspect covered by the title on numerical linear algebra, sparse optimization and on data assimilation fit well with some of the current research at CERFACS.

No registration fees are required to attend the event, but those interested must register in order to receive the workshop login links.
