The proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Difference Equations and Applications (ICDEA 2018) will be published in a special volume of the series Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics entitled Difference Equations and Discrete Dynamical Systems with Applications, Editors: Martin Bohner, Stefan Siegmund, Roman Šimon Hilscher and Petr Stehlík.


The volume will include new and significant contributions in the field of difference equations, discrete dynamical systems and their applications to various sciences. A central aim is to disseminate recent studies and related results and in the same time to promote the recent progress in the field of difference equations and discrete dynamical systems.


All participants are invited to submit their contributions via e-mail to
