Hello! I found this forum in Google when I first looking for a forum where I can discuss about Java.
Now while I am looking for a forum whre I can discuss about Algorithms I failed to find one........in different search engines.....
Do you know where I can discuss about Data Structure and Algorithms....... generally ???

Well you can post a question to this forum if you like, and if the question is better suited to a different forum it will be moved there.
Also, you might try to performance forum here as they talk about those kinds of things there.
Also, you could try some of the basic java forums like java in general (beginner), java in general(intermediate), etc.

You're welcome to discuss data structures and algorithms in the performance forum anytime ! In fact, you're strongly encouraged.
Once I tried to lobby for an algorithms forum, but all I managed to do was shame the management into modifying the performance forum description to read "And maybe a little bit of Algorithms....". 'Twill suffice.
My goal is to have it changed to read "And quantum computing, as long as the discussion doesn't get too passionate".

How about http://forums.embeddedthought.com
Me and a colleague own that site. I think we have some topics you would be interested in. We are needing more members anyway.
Of course, Javaranch is still the #1 place for Java specific questions.

If you would like to discuss the theory of algorithms, then the aforementioned Performance forum might be a good place for it. If you would like to discuss the merits of various akgorithms used to solve some problem, then this forum might be a good place for it. I might make a distinction that this forum is maybe more code oriented, and the performance forum is maybe more theory oriented, although possible others might disagree with this.

Thanks! To you all!
For your info. and good thoughts
What I want to discuss is not language specific materials. It may be of Graph or Number Theory, sorting, recursion, Divide and Conquier strategy, Greedy,Backtracking...Computatinal geometry or even NP complete/NP hard.....Automata........NLP.......Regular expression...context free language......
Many many language dependent or independent topics........
But I think you guyes are experienced or have enough CS background to consult with though I haven't
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
