Linear Algebra and Matrix Analysis are long established mathematical disciplines that play a fundamental role in modern applications. Matrices and Hypermatrices appear everywhere in data analysis, quantum computing, networks, and scientific computing. In addition, many fundamental mathematical problems are still open in these disciplines and many more arise every year. 

In this scenario, the International Linear Algebra Society (ILAS) is a global professional organization solely dedicated to scientists, professionals and educators interested in Linear Algebra and its Applications. 

Among many other activities, ILAS organizes conferences that, since 1989, have taken place over North America, Europe, Asia and South America. These conferences feature high profile speakers (including prize winners) that present the latest developments in Linear Algebra research along with its wide range of applications. These conferences provide an opportunity for linear algebraists all over the world to present their work and to interact with members of the community.
