PurposeThis is a joint symposium hosted by The University of Tokyo and RIKEN on nuclear physics, condensed matter physics and astrophysics in hornor of Prof. Gordon Baym's 80th birth year. We welcome participation of all scientists who are interested in these fields and related interdisciplinary research. We hope to have fruitful discussions on the current status and future perspectives in these fields at the symposium.
