The 13th Biennial Conference on Classical and Quantum Relativistic Dynamics of Particles and Fields
6 - 9 June 2022
Czech Technical University in Prague
The International Association for Relativistic Dynamics (IARD)
its 13th biennial meeting at Czech Technical University in Prague.
Conference sessions will take place on the CTU
campus, subject to Covid restrictions in place at the
time. We plan to include an excursion and a conference banquet.
the association's 24th year of activity since its founding at the 1998 meeting.
Twelve 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. IARD 2020 was a significant success as an early virtual (online only) conference.
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.
Call for Papers
The International Association for Relativistic Dynamics invites
all scholars to attend and participate in this conference, and to
present a lecture at one of the plenary sessions. If you are
interested in presenting at the conference, please submit a brief
abstract of your planned talk to the program committee at the
following email address:
The deadline for abstracts is 25 April 2022. The abstracts should not exceed 250
words. You will receive an email acknowledgement
upon receipt of your abstract.
Notification of the
acceptance of your abstract and assignment to a
paper session will be made by 1 May 2022.
Registration is open for IARD 2022 and will continue through the conference sessions.
The registration fee is € 300 (EUR), which covers participation in the conference, the excursion, the conference banquet
and publication of the proceedings.
The fee may also be paid as $330 (USD).
Accompanying partners may participate in the excursion and the banquet for
an additional fee of € 50 (EUR) which may be paid as $55 (USD).
IARD cannot accept credit card payments. The fee may be paid in cash at the conference.
The registration fee may be waived for students and in other special cases.
If you are interested in attending but have not prepared an
abstract, the organizers will be most grateful if you would
inform us by writing to email@example.com.
