The Department of Mathematics of University of Beira Interior is pleased to host the 2015 Progress on Difference Equations from June 15 to June 18, 2015.
This meeting, held under the auspicies of the International Society for Difference Equations, aims to be a forum where researchers can share their work and discuss the latest developments in the areas of difference equations, discrete dynamical systems and their applications. This meeting is the nineth edition of PODE meetings and continues in the line of previous workshops held in Laufen (Germany) in 2007 and 2008, Bedlewo (Poland) in 2009, Xanthi (Greece) in 2010, Dublin (Ireland) in 2011, Richmond (USA) in 2012, Bialystok (Poland) in 2013, and Ismir (Turkey) in 2014.
University of Beira Interior (UBI) was founded in 1979 and awards all university academic degrees in several fields. It is located in the city Covilhã, one of the main urban centres of the Beira Interior region, in central Portugal.
Covilhã leans on the slope of Serra da Estrela, the highest mountain range in Continental Portugal, and towers between 450 and 800 metres above the sea level. The region is famous for the soft and gooey cheese that becomes harder as the time goes by. The region has also an interesting gastronomy and wine production.
Funded by the Portuguese Government through the FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia under the project UID/MAT/00212/2013
