Subject: Honoring Alan Edelman, 60th Birthday, USA, Jul 2023

We are happy to announce the conference Synergistic Interactions
between Theory and Computation: a Celebration of Alan Edelman's Work
and his 60th Birthday, to be held on July 27-29, 2023 at MIT, in
conjunction with JuliaCon 2023 (July 24-28). We'd like to invite you
to join us - if you are able, and please register at

In this conference, we are trying to cover the many areas of random
matrix theory, numerical linear algebra, and scientific computing that
have been enriched by Alan's contributions, which often bring into
sharp focus how a nice computational "trick" often offers a nice
theoretical insight, in reverse from the usual direction. The
confirmed speakers so far are Dan Spielman (Yale), Francoise Tisseur
(Manchester), Nick Trefethen (Oxford), Gil Strang (MIT), John Urschel
(Harvard), Alex Townsend (Cornell), Sherry Li (LBNL), Steven Johnson
(MIT), Jeremy Kepner (MIT Lincoln Lab), Raffaele Ferrari (MIT). Please
