Videos from New Directions in Numerical Linear Algebra and High Performance Computing Workshop

In July 2021, Sven Hammarling, Françoise Tisseur and I organized an online workshop New Directions in Numerical Linear Algebra and High Performance Computing. The workshop brought together researchers working in numerical linear algebra and high performance computing to discuss current developments and challenges in the light of evolving computer hardware. It was held to honour Jack Dongarra on the occasion of his 70th birthday. The workshop had been postponed from July 2020 as a result of the pandemic.

Videos of the talks are now available on the Numerical Linear Algebra Group’s YouTube channel and are included below. Slides for the talks are available on the workshop website.
