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) will host 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.

IARD 2022 marks 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). h0000000.gif Accompanying partners may participate in the excursion and the banquet for an additional fee of € 50 (EUR) which may be paid as $55 (USD). h0000000.gif IARD cannot accept credit card payments. The fee may be paid in cash at the conference. h0000000.gif The registration fee may be waived for students and in other special cases. h0000000.gif
h0000000.gif 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 abstracts@iard-relativity.org.

Conference Venue

The address of the conference venue is:

Czech Technical University
Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering
Břehová 78/7
115 19  Prague 1
Czech Republic

The meetings take place in Břehová building of the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (Street view)

The meeting venue can be seen from the top of a look-out tower on Old Town square.

This building is located in the very center of Prague (next to the Rudolfinum concert hall, Vltava river and very close to the Old Town square) and is easily reachable by public transport from any part of Prague.

Nearest metro station: Staroměstské náměstí (green line A)
Nearest tram stops: Staroměstské náměstí (lines 2, 13, 14, 17, 18) or Právnická fakulta
(line 17)

As for accessibility of the lecture halls, theses are on the ground floor and first floor (accessible both with starts and elevator).  As for the noon breaks, the lunches will be served in the form of buffet that will be served in the conference building.
