6 - 9 June 2016  ♦  Ljubljana, Slovenia


The International Association for Relativistic Dynamics (IARD) hosted its 10th biennial meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia 6 - 9 June 2016, in cooperation with Jožef Stefan Institute. The conference sessions took place at City Hotel in central Ljubljana.

IARD 2016 marks the association's 18th year of activity since its founding at the 1998 meeting.

Nine 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 and again at UConn.

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.


Conference Proceedings

The organizing committee cordially invites all IARD 2016 participants to submit a manuscript for the conference proceedings, which will appear online in Journal of Physics: Conference Series. Submissions may present significantly expanded discussions of the work described in the conference talk. All manuscripts will undergo external peer review before acceptance.

The deadline for manuscripts — extended to 30 November 2016.

Manuscripts for review do not require any special formatting. PDF files are preferred.

Manuscripts may be submitted to proceedings@iard-relativity.org. We will provide reviewers' comments at the earliest convenience.

Further details will be posted soon.

Papers accepted for publication must be prepared using the Journal of Physics style sheets. h0000000.gif Information for authors is available at http://conferenceseries.iop.org/content/authors. h0000000.gif For LaTeX, please use the JPCS class file (available at http://cms.iopscience.iop.org/alfresco/d/d/workspace/SpacesStore/a83f1ab6-cd8f-11e0-be51-5d01ae4695ed/LaTeXTemplates.zip).
h0000000.gif For Word files, please use the JPCS Microsoft Word template (http://cms.iopscience.iop.org/alfresco/d/d/workspace/SpacesStore/f67538ae-18b2-11e4-831a-29411a5deefe/WordGuidelines.zip).

IARD 2016 participants are encouraged to submit a manuscript for the proceedings, even if related work is in preparation for publication elsewhere.

Under the IOP license agreement, authors are not required to transfer the copyright in their manuscripts to Journal of Physics: Conference Series. Instead authors grant Institute of Physics a license to use the copyright to reproduce and distribute the manuscript. This means that authors retain the copyright in the published work while granting the journal appropriate permissions required to make the paper available online. A re-written and extended version of the paper may be published in another journal.

Authors should read the Institute of Physics Proceedings Licence on the IOP website.

Questions regarding the proceedings may be sent to martin@multinet.net.il
