Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory, Moscow, Russia

International Conference “Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory” (PIRT-2021) will take place 5 – 9 July, 2021 at Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Moscow, Russia and online. The Conference is organized by Bauman University (Russia) and University of Liverpool (Great Britain).

The PIRT Conference is an international scientific event that was first organized in 1988 and held at Imperial College in London once every two years, and since 2003 it has been held at Bauman University in Moscow. The main topics of the conference are the physical, geometric, and mathematical interpretation of the theory of relativity, its experimental verification and alternative theories of gravity, optical methods for detecting gravitational waves, new effects of moving-media optics and relativistic electrodynamics, as well as astrophysical observations and space experiments.

The Conference Program of the Moscow PIRT-2021 will include papers dealing with the following major themes:
– Gravitation, cosmology and large-scale structure
– Gravitational waves and experimental tests of the relativity theory
– Relativistic electrodynamics
– High energy astrophysics
– Modern problems of classical and quantum field theory
