ALGORITMY (Algorithms) represents the oldest Central-European series of international high level scientific meetings devoted to applied mathematics and numerical methods in computational sciences and engineering. It has been traditionally organized in the High Tatra Mountains, Slovakia (see e.g. ALGORITMY 2005, ALGORITMY 2002) by the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava in cooperation with Comenius University in Bratislava and Slovak and Czech Academy of Sciences.

Following this old tradition, the 18th ALGORITMY conference will be devoted to computational methods, their analysis, algorithmic realization and application to real-world problems arising from, but not restricted to, natural sciences, engineering, technology, medicine and finance.

The main topics of the ALGORITMY 2009 conference are:

* computational fluid dynamics, heat transfer and porous media flow
* nonlinear conservations laws
* free boundary problems
* inverse problems
* image processing and computer vision
* computer graphics and computational geometry
* computational finance
* computational biology and medicine
* computational geosciences
* high-scale and parallel computing
* direct and iterative methods for large linear algebraic systems
* preconditioning techniques
* optimization and nonlinear algebraic problems
* scientific visualization
* software for scientific computations.

In solving the above mentioned real-world problems, the main attention is given to a new development and advanced applications of modern numerical methods as finite element, finite volume and level set methods, applied on structured and unstructured adaptive grids and accompanied by a fast and stable solution of arising systems of equations.

Also this year we continue our fruitful cooperation with the series of meetings "Computational Linear Algebra with Applications" which was held last time in Harrachov, Czech Republic, in 2007 and has been organized by the Institute of Computer Science, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Prague.

The programme of the conference will consist of invited plenary lectures, compact two-hours invited and accepted parallel sessions, parallel sessions of contributed talks and a poster session. Deadline for submission of contributed talks and posters is October 31, 2008.

Peer-reviewed Proceedings of sessions' and contributed talks and posters will be published by Slovak University of Technology and will be at disposal during the conference. The length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages, instructions how to prepare the manuscript are here, the deadline is October 31, 2008. Please send your paper in PDF format to

Proceedings of plenary lectures supplemented by selected contributions of participants will appear in a scientific journal.

The scientific programme will start on Monday, March 16th, 2009 at 9 am and end on Friday, March 20th, 2009, afternoon. The accomodation will start on Sunday, March 15th (dinner) and end on Friday 20th (lunch).
