 To kill an error is as good a service, and sometimes even better than, establishing a new truth or fact.

We are now calling for papers and inviting speakers for the 18 August 2012  Physics Colloquium, to be held in Portland, Maine.   The theme for the 2012 Colloquium will be the effect of Special Relativity on Electromagnetic Theory as described by Maxwell's equations.   Reference:  Electromagnetic Theory by Dr. Julius Stratton, McGraw-Hill, New York and London, (Maple Press, York, Pa.), 1941.     (see     The 13 August 2011 Physics Colloquium  scheduled in Portland, Maine focused on the effect of the non constant nature of the speed of light on 21st century physics.    Accepted papers for presentation at the 2012 colloquium will be distributed to all registered attendees before the colloquium so they can be studied and even discussed, which will greatly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the colloquium itself.   Attendees are cordially invited to dinner in Portland on Friday evening, August 17, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. to informally meet and to also discuss physics.    Please register for the colloquium (free) and/or the dinner (off the menu) by sending an E-mail to      



The Belgrade Lakes Institute For Advanced Research was founded in 1999 to study original scientific work of great thinkers going back as far as possible (even thousands of years) to reexamine ideas in search of hints or inspiration which might apply to current scientific progress in physics. The late Dr. Richard Feynman**** is an Honorary Member of the Institute, and his lectures and publications serve as a corner stone for our work and model for our thinking and efforts. Other examples of  great thinkers and scientists would include people such as Michael Faraday, Maxwell, Euler, Cantor, Lavoisier,  Lise Meitner, Otto Hahn, Bohr, De Broglie, Planck, Avogadro, Boltzmann, Compton, Schrodinger,Dr. Albert Einstein, Newton, Leibnitz, Pythagoras, Descartes, and  many others.   Membership in the Institute is by application and majority of votes timely cast by the general membership.    For more information call the USA number 207 242 2143 or E-mail     Articles for the Scientific Journal are invited.   Our mail address is Belgrade Lakes Institute For Advanced Research, 310 Woodland Camp Road,  Box 440, Belgrade, Maine  04917  USA
