One of the ?rst Computer Science sites in Italy, in recent years, the Friuli region has become a very active hub in Computational Physics and other applications of Informatics to Human and Natural Sciences. In particular the University of Udine has developed a tradition in innovative cross-disciplinary research areas involving Computer Science and Physics, providing digital tools for laboratories such as NASA and CERN. The sixth International Symposium "Frontiers of Fundamental and Compu- tional Physics" (FFP6) aimed at providing a platform for a wide range of phy- cists to meet and share thoughts on the latest trends in various research areas including High Energy Physics, Theoretical Physics, Gravitation and Cosmology, Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Fluid Mechanics. Such frontier lines were uni?ed by the use of computers as an, often primary, research instrument, or dealing with issues related to information theory. The present Sixth International Symposium in the series wasorganizedatthe UniversityofUdine,Italyfrom26thto29th ofSeptember2004. TheUniversity of in the Udine and the B. M.
Birla Science Centre in Hyderabad have collaborated organization of this Symposium and the edition of these Proceedings, under the auspices of their joint initiative the International Institute of ApplicableMat- maticsand InformationSciences. ThecontributionsintheProceedingsaregrouped as follows: * Field Theory, Relativity and Cosmology * Foundations of Physics and of Information Sciences * Nuclear and High-Energy Particle Physics and Astrophysics; Astroparticle Physics * Complex Systems; Fluid Mechanics * New Approaches to Physics Teaching ThisSymposiumhadanattendanceofover100participants. Therewere63- pers/presentations, including 4 introductory invited lectures delivered by the - belLaureatesL. CooperandG. 'tHooft,andbytheeminentphysicistsY.
