The Workshop "Matrix Theory and beyond" will focus on various problems dealing with Matrices, like matrix polynomials, low rank perturbations, completion problems and related combinatorics including applications of Matrix Theory in engineering. The main goal of the Workshop is to show the different ideas and problems, all connected by matrices. Participation is open to anyone with interests in these and other related areas. The Seminar of Representation Theory and Related Areas was started in 2010 and emerged from an informal seminar of mathematicians from the Maths Departments of the Universities of Coimbra, Lisboa and Porto, with research interests in Representation Theory of Groups and Algebras, as well as Combinatorics. The group aims to pursue and develop interactions between Representation Theory, Geometry, Combinatorics and other relevant areas. Participation is open to anyone with interests in these and other related areas. More information at www.mat.uc.pt/~crt/sortara2018
