Introduction

The first international conference on. relativity physics and parallel computing took place February 24-28, 1986, at the International Institute of Theoretical Physics at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. Before proceeding to summarize some of the main points of the conference I would like to make a few remarks about the goals of the International Institute of Theoretical Physics. The Institute undertakes frontier research in both pure and applied physics and is housed in the new physics building at Utah State University. The applied research is in solar energy and optical parallel computing. We are in the midst of building four very efficient solar collectors and, in the very near future, parts of an optical parallel computer in the Institute. The pure research is concerned with relativity physics, particle physics, condensed matter physics, quantum systems, etc. On the macroscop­ ic level, we are concerned with possible experimental tests of Einstein's General Relativity. On the microscopic level, we are interested in the unification of gravitation with the other interactions. In addition to research, the International Institute sponsors visiting scientists and en­ courages collaborations, etc.
