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 They must be unpublished and must not be submitted for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.
