       During August of 2004 we expect to bring together leading experts of Random Matrix Theory in different fields of physics and mathematics. The purpose is to exchange results and engage in joint work in this main and vast topic, having one or two seminars each day, leaving most of the time for discussions and collaborations.

    From August 16th to 21th 2004, within the framework of the Gathering, we will
celebrate the 60th birthday of Thomas H. Seligman with the Symposion Quantum Chaos in the 21st Century. The focus of this meeting is on the 21st Century, on the future. Therefore, we would appreciate if you could keep this spirit, contributing with new results instead of reviewing past achievements.
