This Forum is jointly organized by The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology. It is sponsored by The Croucher Foundation, Lee Hysan Foundation and RGC Central Allocation.

Condensed matter physics is one of the most active areas of research in physics. We plan to organize an international forum on the frontier of this field in physics on December 18 - 20, 2006 at the University of Hong Kong. World leading scientists will be gathered for a three-day intense meeting, and will focus on the past, present and the future development in this field.

The Forum will bring a few dozen of the world best physicists to come to Hong Kong to discuss frontiers in physics, in a format quite different from usual workshops or conferences. They will give a number of talks to provide overviews of the past and/or the present of a field or a branch, and to give a vision in the future. The main audience will be graduate students and young researchers in Hong Kong, mainland China, Taiwan and Japan. We hope this forum will present to young physicists interesting and exciting research directions based on the intellectual merit, as well as how a correct research direction is formed and identified. We believe that the students and young researchers will benefit a lot from those exposures.
