The Founding Conference of the
International Association for Relativistic Dynamics - IARD

The International Association for Relativistic Dynamics was founded in a conference held in Houston, Texas during 9-11 February 1998. So, this conference had then another name - PRQT Conference. Later it also was called IARD1998. PRQT stands for Parametrized Relativistic Quantum Theory. PRQT Conference decided to widen the areas of interest to other areas of Relativistic Dynamics too.

One of the founders, Professor John R. Fanchi from Colorado School of Mines, USA, who already has written the first book on this subject (published in 1993), became then the first IARD president, until 2006.
Then Martin Land, another founder of IARD, was elected as the second president of IARD.

Other founders of IARD contributed significantly to the success of IARD.
Professor Lawrence P. Horwitz organized IARD2000, IARD2004 and IARD2008 conferences, as well as being editor of all IARD conferences' proceedings.
Professor Tepper L. Gill organized IARD2002 Conference.
Professor Ronald L. Mallet organized IARD2006 Conference.
Martin Land organized IARD2010 and IARD2012 Conferences
Professor Philip Mannheim and James O'Brien organized IARD2014 Conference.
Professor Matej Pavsic organized IARD2016 Conference.
Some founders and other members wrote books on these subjects.
All founders, as well as new members, contributed important and very interesting subjects for lectures and papers.
The lecturers in IARD conferences came from ~30+ countries around the world, in addition to USA.
All these and other contributions were made voluntarily by IARD members.

Until now IARD conferences were held in even years, usually alternating between west and east halves of the globe. The official language of the conferences and publications is English, yet the lecturers in IARD conferences came from ~30+ countries around the world, in addition to USA. Until now usually IARD conferences were held in different locations, including USA (that speaks English) and countries that speak other languages. Until now most IARD conferences were held during June.
