Waterloo Numerical Analysis Symposium
in commemoration of Gene Golub
February 29, 2008
Gene Golub, Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, was a pioneer in the field of numerical analysis and also a leader and friend to many in the community of numerical analysts. He passed away at age 75 on November 16, 2007. A brief biography is available from Stanford News Service.
On Friday, February 29, 2008, several symposia will take place concurrently around the world in commemoration of Gene's legacy. University of Waterloo will host one such symposium. The organizers are Alan George and Steve Vavasis.
All talks will take place in DC (Davis Centre) 1304. See: maps and directions. Lunch will be served in DC 1301.
SupportThis meeting is supported in part by the Dean of Mathematics of University of Waterloo and in part by NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council).
Note a.m. schedule change made on Feb. 28
RegistrationThere is no fee for this conference thanks to the supporters mentioned above, but registration is required in order to provide an accurate count for the caterer. Registration for the symposium closed on Monday, Feb. 25. If you would like to request late registration, please send email to Steve Vavasis (refer to the link above).
DinnerThe conference does not include dinner. Nonetheless, it is expected that several participants will want to have dinner after the meeting, so a dinner group will be assembled informally at approximately 5:30. Since Gene had a fondness for Chinese food, dinner at a Chinese restaurant is a fitting way to end the meeting. There are several Chinese restaurants in the University Plaza, which is a 10-minute walk from the DC building.
