Abstract: Eclipse-mapping techniques are applied to the hyperactive Algol binary V367 Cyg. Our new computer code is in variation with Rutten's (1998) 3D approach which uses the complete light curve and not only the eclipse portion. The accretion disk image is reconstructed using a genetic algorithm. Disk brightness distribution has a two-arm pattern with highest intensities in the region where the stream from the mass-losing component impacts on the disk.
