The annual Sparse Days meeting was held at CERFACS in Toulouse from  6th to 8th September 2017. This year was an even more remarkable event than usual since this conference served also as an occasion to celebrate the 70th birthday of Iain Duff, who was Project Leader of the Parallel Algorithms Team from its inception in 1987 until 2010 and is still a consultant to the Team.

This event brought together more than 70 attendees, twice more the previous year, from 13 different countries, with a very strong international presence notably with the USA, UK and France. European countries, as Germany, Greece, Italy, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Sweden were also present. We had also the pleasure of hosting attendees from China and Saudi Arabia.

Participants were able to attend 24 talks around the following key points :

  • Direct and iterative methods for solving sparse linear algebra systems,
  • Parallel Algorithms, and
  • High Performance and Exascale Computing.

The traditional conference dinner was held on Thursday September 7th, in the gastronomic restaurant “Brasserie Flo les Beaux-Arts”, beautiful Art Deco brasserie. 76 conference attendees could enjoy the dinner and celebrate Iain’s birthday.

We have posted photos of this dinner online. Feel free to download them.
