Householder Symposium XVIII on Numerical Linear Algebra will be held on June 12-17, 2011, at the Granlibakken Conference Center & Lodge in Tahoe City, California, on the northwest shore of Lake Tahoe. This meeting is the eighteenth in a series, previously called the Gatlinburg Symposia. It is hosted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and is in cooperation with SIAM.

The series of conferences is named after its founder Alston S. Householder, one of the pioneers in numerical linear algebra. The meeting is very informal, with the intermingling of young and established researchers a priority. Participants are expected to attend the entire meeting. The fourteenth Householder Award for the best thesis in numerical linear algebra since January 1, 2008 will be presented.

Attendance at the meeting is by invitation only. Applications are solicited from researchers in numerical linear algebra, matrix theory, and related areas such as optimization, differential equations, signal processing, and control. Each attendee is given the opportunity to present a talk. Some talks will be plenary lectures, while others will be shorter presentations arranged in parallel sessions.

For full consideration, conference applications must be received by October 31, 2010. Invitations will be sent in January 2011.

It is expected that partial support will be available for some students, early career participants, and participants from countries with limited resources.
