The contributions in this volume focus on the use of general
connectivity (unstructured) adaptive meshes for Lagrangian
calculations but contain a substantial amount of material on
Euler and arbitrary Lagrange-Euler techniques as well.
Contributions on the smooth particle hydrodynamics method
and on deterministic vortex methods broaden the scope of the
material and allow comparisons of different, though allied,
techniques to be made.
The format of the conference was designedto optimize the
interaction among the attendees. An edited version of
roundtable discussions is included in these proceedings.
