The SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra promotes research in linear algebra and its applications.
The group organizes a triennial SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra and a triennial International Summer School on Numerical Linear Algebra (ISSNLA) for graduate students and supports smaller, less formal conferences as requested by the membership. Every three years the activity group awards the SIAG/Linear Algebra Prize for the best paper in linear algebra. The activity group also maintains a website, an electronic discussion group, and a member directory, and publishes a column periodically in SIAM News presenting primarily survey articles on advances and activities in linear algebra.
