The International Association for Relativistic Dynamics (IARD)
its 12th biennial meeting under the cloud of the Covid-19 crisis.
The organizers were compelled by circumstances to update conference plans, and decided to split IARD 2020 into two events:
|1 - 4 June:
||A virtual online meeting on the original dates of the conference took place with considerable success.|
|1 - 4 September:
||The physical meeting at
Czech Technical University in Prague, as originally planned for June. Given the continued restrictions on travel and on indoor events, we are forced to cancel the physical meeting for 2020. |
Preparations have begun to host IARD 2022 in Prague.

the association's 22th year of activity since its founding at the 1998 meeting.
Eleven previous meetings were held in Houston, Texas,
Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv, Israel, Howard University in
Washington DC, Saas Fee, Switzerland, the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT, Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece,
and Hualien, Taiwan, Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics (GGI) in Florence, Italy, again at UConn, in Ljubljana, Slovenia,
and in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico.
The goal of these meetings is to bring together researchers from diverse fields
whose interests involve relativistic dynamics, both classical and quantum.
The conference program aims to present recent developments in the
abstract theoretical aspects of general approaches in quantum field theory,
conformal field theories and string theories, manifestly covariant approaches to
classical mechanics, quantum theory, and statistical mechanics, general
relativity, classical and quantum gravity, and explore application in such
areas as high energy electron spectroscopy, quark-gluon plasma generation in
heavy ion collisions, general high energy scattering and particle decay,
cosmology, gravitational waves, and relativistic quantum information.
The Proceedings of IARD 2018 appear in Journal of Physics: Conference Series, Volume 1239.

IARD Mission Statement
The purpose of the Association is to facilitate the acquisition and
dissemination of knowledge about research programs in classical and quantum
relativistic dynamics of particles and fields.
