The main theme of the ECIT conferences is Iteration Theory, on the border line between dynamics and functional equations. The aim is to foster symbiosis between mainstream dynamics and iteration theory treated in the style of functional equations theory. The following topics are focused; turbulence and iteration, characterization of chaos, kneading theory, symbolic dynamics, bifurcation, periods of maps, topological dynamics, discrete retarded dynamical systems, cellular automata as dynamical systems, iterative roots of formal power series, iterative roots of polynomials, phantom iterative roots, iterative groups and semigroups, families of commuting functions, algebraic aspects of iteration theory and functional equations.
