Beyond the MatTriad Conferences

Jan Hauke, Augustyn Markiewicz, Simo Puntanen

Abstract:  In this article we present a short history of the MatTriad Conferences, a series of international conferences on matrix analysis and its applications. The name MatTriad originally comes from the phrase Three Days Full of Matrices. The first MatTriad was held in the Mathematical Research and Conference Center of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Będlewo, near Poznań, Poland, 3-5 March 2005, and has since then been organized biennially. The 8th MatTriad was held in Liblice, near Prague, Czech Republic, 8-13 September 2019. The next MatTriad will be held in Curia, near Coimbra, Portugal, September 2021.
Keywords:  MatTriad conference; linear algebra and its applications; matrix analysis
