The conference will
be held on March 23-27, 2009 at Będlewo near Poznań.
Będlewo is the Mathematical Research and Conference
Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences
(for further info about this place please visit www.impan.gov.pl/EN/Bedlewo).
This workshop will be the third in a series. The previous two
workshops were held in Będlewo in 2005 and 2007. The aim is to bring
together researchers sharing an interest in a variety of aspects of
matrix analysis and its applications in other parts of mathematics and
offer them a possibility to discuss current developments in these
Matrix theory is used in practically all other parts of mathematics and
all areas to which mathematics is applied, and, in return, other parts
of mathematics can be very useful in proving things about matrices,
sometimes things that are very difficult or impossible to prove using
conventional matrix theoretic methods. For example there
are many examples in which graph theory is useful in matrix
theory, but also matrix theory is an indispensable tool in graph
theory. Yet another connection is with the people who are interested in
polynomials (possibly in several variables) that take on only positive
values. This involves many matrix problems both ways. Many advances
have been made recently, both theoretically and practically
(connections with semidefinite programming), with a lot of discussion
between matrix people and others.
Researchers and graduate students in the area of linear algebra,
statistical models and computation are particularly encouraged to
attend the workshop. The format of this meeting will involve plenary
talks and sessions with contributed talks. The list of invited will be
opened by four winners of Young Scientists Awards of MAT-TRIAD 2007
promoted by the conference. We are also planning two short
courses delivered by experienced lecturers for graduate students as
well as others conference participants.
The work of young scientists has still a special

works will be widely
