The 14th Biennial Conference on Classical and Quantum Relativistic Dynamics of Particles and Fields
3 - 6 June 2024
The International Association for Relativistic Dynamics (IARD)
its 14th biennial meeting at Aalto University.
Conference sessions will take place on the Aalto campus We hope to include an excursion and a conference banquet.
the association's 26th year of activity since its founding at the 1998 meeting.
Thirteen 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.
IARD 2022 took place in Prague at Czech Technical University.
The Proceedings of IARD 2022 appear at https://iopscience.iop.org/issue/1742-6596/2482/1.
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 2024. 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 2024.
If you are interested in presenting a lecture at one of the plenary sessions, please refer to the Call for Papers above.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
