SUBMISSIONS
       For the workshop, (extended) abstracts are to be submitted. They must
       be in English and should not exceed 4 pages in IEEE double column
       format. They must be unpublished and must not be submitted for
       publication elsewhere. Those that are accepted will appear in the
       workshop proceedings, and must be presented by one of the authors.
       Submissions will be handled by the EasyChair system. Full papers will
       be submitted to a special issue of the journal Numerical Linear Algebra
       with Applications (NLAA) after the workshop.
