Biographical Note

The Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics is a biennial symposium focusing on the latest observations and developments in astronomy and physics, specifically relating to relativistic astrophysics. Alfred Schild and Ivor Robinson co-founded the symposium, a collaboration between the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas at Dallas, in 1962. The first four meetings were held at either Austin or Dallas, but the international appeal of the symposium led to convocations in New York, Boston, Munich, Baltimore, and Tel Aviv.
