The 6^{th} Biennial Conference on Classical and Quantum Relativistic Dynamics of Particles and Fields
2226 June 2008
♦
Aristotle University

Thessaloniki, Greece
Conference Proceedings
The
proceedings of IARD 2008 appear in Foundations of Physics, Volume 41, Issue 1.
The International Association for Relativistic Dynamics (IARD) is
hosting its 6^{th} biennial meeting at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece,
2226 June 2008.
IARD 2008
marks the association's 10^{th} year of activity since its founding at the 1998 meeting.
Five previous meetings took place in Houston, Texas,
Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv, Israel, Howard University in
Washington DC, Saas Fee, Switzerland, and the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT.
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, quarkgluon plasma generation in
heavy ion collisions, general high energy scattering and particle decay,
cosmology, and gravitational waves.
Conference Program
The program is currently being assembled, and will
remain open to abstract submissions for several weeks.
Invited speaker: Itzhak Bars will speak on TwoTime Physics (2TPhysics)
