The 24th International Conference on Difference Equations and Applications (ICDEA 2018) will be held at Technische Universität Dresden, Germany from May 21 to 25, 2018. ICDEA is the official conference of the International Society of Difference Equations (ISDE) and hosts its General Meeting.


The purpose of ICDEA 2018 is to bring together experts and students in the theory and applications of difference equations and discrete dynamical systems.

As part of the General Meeting of ISDE, the "Best JDEA Paper Prize" will be awarded for the best paper published in the Journal of Difference Equations and Applications (JDEA) in 2017.

There will be plenary talks (50 min + 10 min) and contributed talks (25 min + 5 min). Internet access will be available in all lecture rooms, as well as the usual technical facilities like laptops, overhead projectors and blackboards. Coffee breaks will take place in front of or near the conference lecture rooms.
