Selected papers of the conference will be published in the Vol.14 of “Mathematical Modelling and Analysis” (The Baltic Journal on Mathematical Applications, Numerical Analysis and Differential Equations), http://www.vgtu.lt/rc/mma/ and hopefully in the special issues of journals “Numerical Functional Analysis and Optimization”, “Computational Methods in Applied Mathematics”. All published papers will be peer-reviewed according to standard rules of the corresponding journals. 


The conference will take place at Kääriku Sport Center of the University of Tartu http://www.kaariku.com/set_lang_id=2. Kääriku is a little village between lakes and forests, about 50 km from Tartu.
