22-26 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 6th biennial meeting at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece, 22-26 June 2008.

IARD 2008 marks the association's 10th 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, quark-gluon 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 Two-Time Physics (2T-Physics)
