Protostars & Planets VII (PP7) will take place in Kyoto in April 2021. This is the first conference of the series held in Asia. This series of conference has provided important opportunity for the scientists working on the formation of stars and planets. We would like to have a series of review talks summarizing the development in our field in recent years. As in the previous Protostars & Planets Series, we will publish those reviews as a new volume, PROTOSTARS AND PLANETS VII, in the Space Science Series of University of Arizona Press (General Editor: Richard P. Binzel).
