Kavli IPMU - RIKEN iTHES - Osaka TSRP Symposium
"Frontiers of Theoretical Science – MATTER, LIFE and COSMOS - "
The purpose of this joint symposium is to promote interdisciplinary collaborations among theorists in physics, chemistry and biology to attach the fundamental problems  in modern theoretical and mathematical science. Also, this symposium aims to intertwine young theorists in various fields to create an environment for developing new ideas.
