SPARSE DAYS Annual Meeting

The Annual Sparse Days meeting is an informal one or two days event hosted by Cerfacs, in Toulouse, France and is similar in format to previous years.
No invited speakers and all talks in plenary session.

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 individuals interested in attending the event must register on time.
