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 They must be unpublished and must not be submitted for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.
