This series of workshops, initially aimed at shape-phase transitions and critical point phenomena in nuclei started in Berkeley in 2004 and continued in Camerino (2005), Athens (2006), Sofia (2007), Istanbul (2009), Darmstadt (2012), Seville (2014), Prague (2016) and Padova (2018).

It is our purpose to foster an informative and exciting workshop and keep the informal spirit of lively discussions that represents the true success of these meetings. The workshop is also organized in honor of Franco Iachello on the occasion of his 80th birthday. This workshop will have an opening talk and 8 sessions coordinated by Conveners.
