The beginning of the XXII International Conference "Physical Interpretations of the Theory of Relativity PIRT-2021"


   July 5, 2021, Bauman Moscow State Technical University hosted the opening ceremony of the XXII International Conference "Physical Interpretations of the Relativity Theory PIRT-2021". In a moment in which distance learning is more important than ever, the PIRT-2021 conference held in the Educational and Laboratory Building is providing an opportunity for all participants to share and present their contributions by means of modern multimedia technology, which allows presentations to be given both distantly and in person, in compliance with sanitary and epidemiological requirements. All reports are accompanied by simultaneous conference interpreting.

   The grand opening saw the presentations of the co-chairman of the International Organizing Committee - Professor of the University of Liverpool Peter Rowlands, all-time PIRT participant; the President of the Russian Gravitational Society, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, an internationally recognized scientist in the field of cosmology and gravity Alexey Starobinsky; a Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Head of the Department of Physics Andrey Morozov; an American mathematician, topologist and professor of Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at the University of Illinois in Chicago Louis Kauffman. The ceremonial meeting was moderated by professor Vladimir Gladyshev, the Dean of the Faculty of Fundamental Sciences, Bauman Moscow State Technical University.

   The XXII International Conference "PIRT-2021" aimed at discussing modern generalizations of the theory of relativity, its observable consequences; experimental verification of the theory of relativity; methods of registration of gravitational waves; effects of relativistic electrodynamics and optics of moving media; as well as astrophysical observations and space experiments.

   The PIRT-2021 program is dedicated to the latest advances in the theory of gravity, cosmology, astrophysics; more than 115 researchers from 21 countries plan to take part in the conference.

   On the first day, the conference welcomed well-known scientists, such as Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Professor Starobinsky from Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Russia; Professor Romero from the Federal University of Paraíba, Colombia; Professor Beesham from the University of Zululand, South Africa; Professor Mishra and Professor Sahoo from the Birla Institute of Technology & Science, BITS Pilani, India; Professor Garat from the University of the Republic, Uruguay; Professor Tripathy from Indira Gandhi Institute of Technology, India, and others.
